RIVER FLOOD WARNING remains in effect until further notice for the Mississippi River at Wabasha. Minor flooding is occurring.

High pressure moves in from the west today, bringing lots of sunshine and slightly warmer temps. Highs today will be in the mid-upper 50s, still a little short of our average high of 60F.

Mostly clear and seasonably cool tonight. Lows will be in the low 40s, but low-mid 30s will be possible in traditional colder spots north and east.

Sunny to partly cloudy Friday. It will be even warmer with highs in the mid 60s, but also breezy with SE winds 10-20 mph and gusts of 30-35 mph possible.

A cool front will bring a chance of rain showers and isolated thunder late Friday night into Saturday, especially through about midday. Otherwise, it will be mild this weekend with highs both days in the mid 60s. Most of Sunday should be dry. A stronger system will bring a good chance of showers and isolated thunder Sunday night into Monday. It will also be breezy Monday and turning cooler with highs in the mid-upper 50s.

Looking Ahead… Windy and cooler Tuesday with isolated showers possible in the morning. Highs Tuesday will be in the low 50s.

Partly sunny and breezy Wednesday. Highs will be in the low-mid 50s.

Cool Thursday with a chance of rain showers. Highs will be around 50F. The rain showers could mix with snow showers late in the day or Thursday night, with temps dropping into the mid 30s.

Mostly cloudy and chilly Friday with highs only in the upper 40s.

Enjoy the sunshine today… and have a great day! -Bill Graul
