Scattered showers and storms in the forecast
Mon, 09 Sep 2013 02:00:03 GMT —
We have a rollercoaster ride of temperatures, and some rain, for the upcoming work week.
High pressure is to the east, causing southerly winds to bring us warm air - and a nudge in temperatures for Monday. Low pressure will move into Minnesota and Wisconsin throughout Monday, and it's approaching warm front will touch off some showers throughout the day. Monday we'll have most highs in the 70s.
Thunderstorms are expected overnight into Tuesday, and some of them may be strong. We'll make sure to keep you updated.
Tuesday will bring the low into the Central U.P. and the warm front through. Expect humid, and HOT conditions! Many areas will be near 90 degrees in the afternoon, with heat indices having it feel more like 100! It will also be a little breezy, with westerly winds gusting to 30mph. Make sure to stay hydrated, limit your time outdoors, and take care of your pets. The northernmost counties have a chance for rain, but elsewhere looks to remain dry for most of the day with a decent amount of sunshine.
Wednesday puts us back down into the 70s, and as the low pushes eastward into Canada, the cold front comes along with it through the mitten. This will put more showers and storms in the forecast into Thursday.
Behind this system is high pressure, so get ready for some great fall days - we're ending the week with highs in the 60s and plenty of sunshine.
The one thing to note with the cooler weather is the low temperatures - Friday and Saturday morning we dip into the 30s and 40s, and some of us may wake up to some frost.
