Pleasant fall forecast most of the week, few showers Wednesday into early Thursday

Here’s your Monday evening forecast for October 16, 2023 from Minnesota’s Weather Authority and Meteorologist Wren Clair.

What a gorgeous fall forecast we had today across Minnesota and Wisconsin! Temperatures were back into the low-60s for the Twin Cities. Tonight is another brisk and seasonable night in the upper-30s, with some increasing cloud cover late overnight. Winds will be light and variable overnight, but predominantly light and out of the south into Tuesday morning. Patchy fog is possible overnight, mainly north of I-94 (and especially Up North).

Scattered showers and even isolated thunderstorms (not severe) are possible Wednesday, but this won’t be the widespread significant rainfall that many of us saw last week. Instead, the rain will be light and scattered. Most of us only see trace amounts of moisture up to about 0.1″-0.2″ of rainfall, with higher totals across far northwestern Minnesota. Spotty light showers hold into Thursday morning, but most of your Thursday forecast is dry. Winds are breezy Friday into Saturday morning, with spotty showers Friday and Saturday Up North.

Temperatures throughout this week are warmer than last, and your weekend forecast looks dry and comfortable!

Have a wonderful night!
