7 Day Forecast 7 Day Forecast

Even though yesterday's 66 felt pretty good, the clouds and wind kept it from feeling great!  Today it'll probably end up a little cooler, with a high in the low 60s, but it might feel even nicer than yesterday.  We should have much lighter winds, and completely sunny skies.  There's a chance for a few more showers on Thursday, which will keep highs in the low-60s again, but the rain should be very light, preventing it from hampering an already bad situation on the area rivers.  Temps will rise back into the mid to upper 60s Friday and Saturday, before climbing back into the mid-70s on Sunday.
 
The Outlook
Next week looks a little more interesting.  A strong push of warm and more humid air is expected to move northward through the Central Plains States early in the week.  Right now it looks as though showers and thunderstorms will develop over the Dakotas on Monday, and then slowly slide into Minnesota by Monday evening.  A cool front will be the focus for showers and thunderstorms on Tuesday, and there's a pretty good chance the front is going to slow down right over southern Minnesota.  Unfortunately this could lead to some locally heavy rain Tuesday into Wednesday.  There's still plenty of time for this forecast to change, and with the rivers running high, most people are probably hoping that happens.  
 
The Winds
The winds should be southerly at 5 mph tonight and southwesterly at 5-15 mph on Thursday.
