Fairly Quiet this Weekend
Turning Windy Sunday
We continue to watch a low pressure system drop by to our southwest It has been producing an area of snow, possibly mixing with a bit of rain and times over southeastern Minnesota and northeastern Iowa. It appears some of this snow may clip areas just east of the Mississippi early this evening. The area most likely to see snow will be over southeastern Minnesota and northeastern Iowa, where a couple of inches of snow are possible. Locally, I think most of our precip will be minor, with little if any accumulation expected.
Once the precip ends, look for a cloudy sky. Lows will drop into the teens and to middle 20s.
We’ll be in between systems Saturday. As a result, expect a cloudy and somewhat cooler day. We’ll see highs mainly in the 20s.
Clouds will hang on into Saturday night as our next system begins to clip the area. Look for lows in the 20s.
Sunday will bring a small window for some light rain and snow, mainly in the morning. By afternoon, expect a very mild and windy day. In fact, wind gusts could approach 45 mph in open areas. Look for highs in the 30s to lower 40s.
Looking ahead… a bit of dry weather returns Monday under a mostly sunny sky. Look for highs in the 30s.
Yet another in our series of weak weather systems will arrive Monday night and Tuesday and bring a chance of more light snow. It will be a bit cooler Tuesday as highs slip back into the 20s. This is where we are supposed to be for this time of year!
Wednesday looks dry and cool with highs again in the 20s.
Another system arrives Thursday into Friday and could bring a glancing blow of rai and snow to the area these days. This system will pump warm air into the region Thursday, so expect highs well into the 30s. Slightly colder air will follow for Friday and Saturday as the system departs. Expect highs in the 20s to lower 30s.
