Chance of Scattered T-Showers Today & Tonight… But Some Dry Time Too -Bill Graul

Sunday Trending Dry for Most Areas

Saturday’s Forecast High: 82F / Tonight’s Forecast Low: 66F…

Yes, we’ll have some rain chances today and tonight… but it won’t be anything like the washout we had last Saturday. In fact, there should be plenty of dry hours with most forecast models hinting at the chance for a few scattered showers and isolated storms today. Some models then advertise a chance of more storms tonight, but the better chances may be shifting south. Just have that rain gear handy for outdoor plans… just in case. Highs today will be in the upper 70s to low 80s for most.

The rain chances for Sunday continue to trend downward as it looks like the main chances will be to our south. Just isolated t-showers look possible for parts of our area and many areas could end up staying dry Sunday. This would be great news for the Applefest Parade in La Crescent, MN on Sunday afternoon. Highs Sunday will be in the upper 70s to around 80F.

Weekend Forecast Bill

Looking Ahead… Partly cloudy and dry Monday with highs in the low 80s. Slight chance of showers and isolated thunder late Monday night into Tuesday morning. Otherwise, warm Tuesday with highs well into the 80s.

A cold front will track southeast across the region Wednesday or Wednesday night. As it does, expect a chance for some showers… then much cooler air follows with highs Thursday and Friday only in the 60s. Seems Mother Nature is going to be right on cue with the autumnal equinox on Thursday, marking the first day of “astronomical” Fall. Isolated showers possible next Saturday with highs near 70F.

Have a great weekend! -Meteorologist Bill Graul
