Chief Meteorologist Ken Barlow forecasts cooler air and less humidity going into the weekend

Meteorologist Ken Barlow finally sees a bit of rain in the forecast

The air is much cleaner today than it has been since Tuesday, when the metro first started to see the smoke from the wildfires in Canada.

Good Wednesday morning!

A brand-new weather pattern developed whilst most of us slept last night!

A cooler and much less humid air mass has moved into the entire state.

The more comfortable weather will stick around for the next several days and through the weekend.

In fact, there are no signs of any heat and humidity headed back to Minnesota for the next seven days…at least.

The winds will be comforting today and come from the northwest and 10-20 mph.

Sunshine will be occasionally filtered by some passing patchy clouds at times, but most of the day will be mostly sunny.

Temperatures will rise into the middle 70’s across the area today making for a beautiful ‘start’ to the work week, at least for some folks!

Have a great day!
