Slight chances for light rainfall tonight, mostly dry tomorrow

Here’s your Wednesday evening forecast for October 18, 2023 from Minnesota’s Weather Authority and Meteorologist Wren Clair.

Light and widely scattered rain showers are possible tonight, but most of us stay dry. Temperatures remain mild overnight with mostly cloudy skies, winds out of the northwest and lows in the upper-40s for the Twin Cities. Thursday we’ll be mostly cloudy for most of Minnesota in Wisconsin, with high temperatures again in the upper-50s. By tomorrow afternoon we should start to see some peaks of sunshine, with decreasing cloud cover continuing overnight Thursday.

Light and variable winds Thursday nights (predominantly light northwesterly winds) and clearing skies will allow for a colder start to your Friday morning, with patchy fog possible. Friday features more sunshine for the Upper Midwest. However, another Alberta Clipper moves in Friday, which brings rain chances mainly across northern Minnesota into western Wisconsin Friday into Saturday AM. This fast moving system will also bring more cloud cover to northern Minnesota and Wisconsin Friday into Saturday.

Temperatures Friday are back in the mid-60s. Most of your Thursday through Monday weekend forecast remains dry and seasonable. Our next chance for significant rainfall will arrive Tuesday through Thursday of next week.

Have a wonderful night!
