Cloudy, but Mild Tonight
Rain Arrives Tomorrow Night
Published on Wednesday, April 1st, 2020 at 6:42 PM
Good evening… we continue to watch a storm system to our west. For the moment, it is stalled over the Dakotas, which means most of the precipitation with it will stay west of the area until the system starts to move, which happen over the next couple of days.
As we head into tonight, look for clouds from this system to remain in place, but for the most part, we should remain dry. There could even be a few breaks in the clouds at times. It will be a mild night with temperatures only falling into the upper 30s to lower 40s region-wide.
Clouds will continue into Thursday. Most of the day will remain dry, but a few strays showers could pop late in the day, especially west of the Mississippi River. Southeast winds at 10 to 15 mph will continue to pump mild air into the region. Look for afternoon highs in the upper 50s to lower 60s.
We’ll see a slight chance of showers Thursday evening, but showers will become likely late Thursday night as that system starts to move into the region. Look for mild lows in the middle 40s to lower 50s.
Looking Ahead… Our slow-poke weather system will track across the region Friday. As a result, expect periods of rain as highs fall back into the upper 40s to middle 50s. Rain will linger into Friday night and may even mix with or change to snow before ending early Saturday morning. Look for lows to slip back into the upper 20s to lower 30s.
We’ll start Saturday under cloudy skies, but we should see some sun by afternoon. Look for highs in the upper 40s to middle 50s. Sunday looks dry as highs climb back into the middle and upper 50s. An approaching weather system will bring a chance of showers Monday. It will also bring a slug of mild air with it. Expect highs to top out in the 60s Monday. Rain chances continue into Tuesday. We could even see a few t-storms. It will be even warmer as highs make a run at the upper 60s to lower 70s. A cold font cross the area late Tuesday, which will drop temperatures into the lower 60s Wednesday and the middle 50s by next Thursday. We could see a lingering shower or two Wednesday before dry weather returns for Thursday.
Have a great night! –WKBT Cory Malles
