Warmer and seasonable temperatures return Friday into next week

Good evening! We’re making strides toward a more comfortable fall forecast, with highs today back into the 40s. Overnight lows tonight are not as cold as earlier this week. Most of central and southern Minnesota will be in the upper-20s and low-30s. While temperatures tomorrow are back into the mid to upper-40s, we trend cloudy overnight into Friday morning. By the afternoon tomorrow, we have some peaks of sunshine, but I don’t expect we’ll fully shake our cloud cover. Comfortable temperatures hold over your weekend forecast, with high temperatures back in the low-50s Sunday into Monday.

While temperatures trend more comfortable and mild Friday into next week, we do have a predominately cloudy 7-day forecast. Slight chances for a very isolated rain shower are possible both Friday and Saturday. Up North, those chances Friday and Saturday could bring a few flurries. Sunday’s rainfall looks stalled, leading to a mainly dry daytime forecast. Rain showers Sunday are now more likely across western Minnesota by mid to late afternoon, but most of the showers are Sunday evening and overnight into early Monday. Temperatures next week now look warmer than they did early this week, so the potential for a wintry mix by the start of next week has gone down. We should mainly see slight chance for rain showers into next week. The only exception to the slight chances for rain looks to be Tuesday night into Wednesday, which looks a little more promising for some rain. That being said, computer model guidance has struggled with timing and track agreement this week with our precipitation chances. So, I would definitely advise staying up-to-date with forecast as some continued changes are likely.

Have a wonderful night!
