It was a cloudy and cool end to September. It looks like October will start on a wet note.
A developing storm system to our west will come at us in two pieces. The result will be a couple of rainy days.
For tonight, the first part of this system will swing a front toward the area. Scattered showers ahead of this feature will slowly move east across Minnesota, possibly reaching the western section of the viewing area late tonight, then the Mississippi River by daybreak. Overnight lows will not fall much and most of us will end up between 45 and 50 degrees.
Look for occasional showers and isolated t-storms to track through the region tomorrow as temperatures warm into the lower to middle 60s.
The rain may turn to drizzle tomorrow night before part two of this system moves in Thursday.
Looking Ahead... The second part of this system will lift northeast across the region Thursday. It looks like a fairly strong system with more rain showers and a few isolated t-storms likely. South winds ahead of the low will push highs Thursday into the middle and upper 60s
Much cooler air will follows Thursday's system with highs Friday and Saturday only in the low-mid 50s. Not only that, but it will be quite breezy as well... making it feel even cooler. We'll see a few lingering showers Friday, but Saturday looks dry at this point. We've added a slight chance of showers for the Sunday through Tuesday time frame as a couple of very weak disturbances look to track through the region. It will remain on the cool side, with temperatures in the middle to upper 50s Sunday and Monday. It appears we may have to wait until Tuesday and Wednesday for temperatures to warm back into the lower to middle 60s.
Have a great night! -Cory Malles
