Cooler air moves across Minnesota, Wisconsin on Sunday

Here’s your Saturday night forecast for June 8, 2024 from Minnesota’s Weather Authority and Meteorologist Matt Serwe.

Scattered showers are ending across northwest Wisconsin early Saturday night. This is all ahead of a cold front that is dropping south tonight. As the front moves over the Twin Cities on Sunday, you can expect more clouds in the afternoon, and cooler highs in the upper 60s and low 70s. Monday will be another beautiful day with high pressure sitting over the state, keeping the sky clear and winds light.

The pattern shifts through the middle and end of the week. There is a lot of heat across the western United States, and that will gradually move east over the next several days. The difficult question is: How far north will the heat get? There will be a few storm systems moving through the northern branch of the jet stream, and they could keep the highest heat south of Minnesota and Wisconsin. The first wave arrives on Tuesday with scattered rain and a few storms. Another one comes in Wednesday night through Thursday with more chances for storms.
