7 Day Forecast 7 Day Forecast

We’ve had a couple dry days, but we need more!  The overall pattern is still favoring quiet weather for at least the next few days.  There’s still a slight chance that the warmer air moving this way could also bring a small amount of moisture along with it.  The good news is that it doesn’t look like a lot one way or the other.  A few showers might develop just ahead of a cold front late Thursday night and early Friday.  Temperatures will probably be a bigger deal, dropping our highs on Thursday from the lower 60s to the 40s again over the weekend.  The cold front might even be strong enough to produce another round of snow showers on Saturday, especially in the northern half of the state, but a few wind-blown flurries aren’t out of the question even here in the Twin Cities.

The Outlook
Next week we could be in for a nice warm up.  The jet stream is supposed to bulge northward just to our west over Montana and the Dakotas.  This should cause temperatures to rise there first before heading our way much of next week.  It looks as though we’ll at least be up around average, in the 50s, with a few days flirting with the 60s.  We should also stay dry most of the week, with only a slight chance for showers starting on Thursday and lasting into Friday.
 
The Winds
The winds should be northwesterly at 5 mph tonight and southwesterly at 10-15 mph on Thursday.
