SUNNY, MILD & BREEZY
Sunshine has prevailed today to kick off the new work week in the Northland. Out average high temperatures are supposed to be in the lower 50s but they were 5 to 10 degrees above those readings today. A surface high pressure was positioned over the Southern Plains and providing this mild dry air into the area. This will keep the Northland dry for the upcoming days with a chance of rain holding off until the weekend.
Tonight with the mostly clear skies and calming wind out of the west at 5 mph, temperatures will drop into the mid and upper 30s overnight so it would be a good idea to keep the jacket nearby if you plan to head out or walk the dog. Tomorrow will be another gorgeous day with a light wind out of the southwest and west at 5 to 15 mph. Temperatures will be in the upper 60s to near 70 degrees. With the mostly sunny skies and light winds, it is possible that temperatures could be very closely to 70 degrees based on the mixing of the upper levels of the atmosphere.
The rest of the work week will remain dry with highs in the mid and upper 60s. The next chance of rain will be on Saturday into Sunday. A low pressure will move through Southern Canada with a cold front that will pass through the Midwest and the Northern Plains. There is a difference in the data on exactly when the showers will arrive. We have a spread between Saturday afternoon and early Sunday morning. This is normal being 4 days ahead of the storm.
