7 Day Forecast 7 Day Forecast

We’re giving up the wintry look from the weekend for a more traditional “fall” look this week.  Showers and thunderstorms should develop later tonight, probably after midnight, and then continue into Tuesday.  Temperatures are going to stay cool tomorrow, with highs only in the mid 40s.  The warming trend will continue through the rest of the week, with highs rising to near 50 on Wednesday, and then 60s after that.  The overall pattern is going to remain very active, with scattered showers popping up again by Friday night.  
The Outlook
Another early season snowstorm is going to begin taking shape Saturday night out West, and then slide into the Dakotas as we start the weekend.  That system will probably have significant snow with it again, especially in the central parts of North Dakota.  Here in Minnesota, showers and thunderstorms should move in on Sunday, with the cold air sweeping across the our state late in the weekend and into early next week.  As highs slip into the 40s again here in the Twin Cities by Monday of next week, rain could change to snow over the northwestern part of the state, with just come cold rain expected here.
The Winds
The winds should be southeasterly at 5-10 mph tonight and northwesterly at 10-20 mph on Tuesday.
