Cloudy skies have continued today but temperature did warm up several degrees more compared to this time yesterday. The rain has ended as well but we still have the threat for a few light rain showers over the next coming days. High temperatures were in the upper 40s and lower 50s. Winds have shifted out of the south and southwest at five to ten miles per hour. These winds aren’t going anywhere tonight and will help keep temperatures mild overnight in the upper 30s and lower 40s.
Clouds will stay in the forecast tomorrow as another storm system moves into the Upper Midwest. The center of low pressure will track along the International Border keeping the chance of rain in the Borderlands in the afternoon. We are not expecting widespread rainfall but rather a few isolated rain showers in the Northern section of the viewing area. High temperatures tomorrow will be quite mild across a vast majority of the Northland with highs in the upper 50s and lower 60s. The only exception to this will be in the Arrowhead where temperatures will be in the lower 50s and upper 40s.
A cold front will move through late Friday night and put an end to the brief warmup across the area. We will be cooling our temperatures off into the upper 40s on Saturday with another risk of rainfall in the Northland. Right now the latest forecast suggests that the best chance of rainfall will be with a band along and south of the Twin Ports. Behind this wave of rainfall will be a level of high pressure that will move south into the Central Plains. The position of that high will pull in north winds but the sun will return.
The Halloween forecast is on many people’s minds, particularly the little ones for the trick or treating. The weather conditions aren’t looking as good as a storm from the Pacific Northwest will sing through and move through the Northland Monday. Rain could come down heavy at times over at least half of the viewing area. Right now the best chance of constant moderate rainfall is in Minnesota counties will a lesser chance in Wisconsin.
