7 Day Forecast 7 Day Forecast

After our warm and humid weekend, clouds and a few showers have held temperatures down today.  The average high temperature has slipped to 80, and the next 2 days, we’ll have trouble making that number.  Sunshine should return tomorrow, but with the cooler air aloft, we’ll struggle to get out of the mid-70s.  Wednesday and Thursday we should get close to 80, but it’ll be a struggle to get much above that.  We’re an inch and a half below average in the rainfall department for the Twin Cities, and after our showers end today, we’ll probably have to wait until late Thursday night or Friday to get another chance for some much needed rainfall.

The Outlook
On Friday a warm front will be the focus for showers and thunderstorms, which will hold temps in the upper 70s to around 80 again.  Once that moves through late Friday, temperatures are expected to soar as we head into the first weekend of the Minnesota State Fair.  We’ll probably at least see temps in the mid-80s, with a few thermometers reaching into the upper 80s to near 90.  Right now it looks as though the upper level pattern is going to favor much above temperatures as we head into next week.  Keeping cool is going to be a high priority with temperatures flirting with the mid to upper 80s nearly every day next week.  
The Winds
The winds should be southerly at 10-15 mph tonight and southerly at 10-20 mph on Tuesday.
