MN and Iowa Watches and Warnings

Soggy Wednesday

We will start off pretty cloudy, but for the most part dry this morning. A few very light rain showers are possible early on, however I expect the bulk of the rain to hold off until after the noon hour, after which more widespread showers are expected.

The rain will be scattered, but will last into the evening and overnight hours, with a few snowflakes, maybe even a little freezing rain mixing in during the cooler periods. Snow accumulations do not look likely for us, better chance for that from the Twin Cities & north.

Temperatures will stay in the upper 40s, nearing that 50° mark today through Friday, which will be 10 to 15° cooler than normal! The rain/snow once lined up for Thursday and Friday has shifted to the south.  A few flurries might be possible early Friday morning, however for the most part it looks like we will be dealing with a couple dry days before some weekend rain arrives.  It looks to arrive late Saturday and continue into Sunday.

You may be thinking rain means cooler temps this weekend.  Nope!  We'll rise into the 50s for the weekend, and eventually 60s next week as the middle part of the country gets in on a slug of warmer air.

Today: Mostly cloudy, with a few flurries/sprinkles possible near sunrise. Better chance for rain arrives after the noon hour, lasting into the evening. Highs near 50°. Breezy. Wind: SE 20-35 mph

Tonight: Mostly cloudy, with a chance for scattered rain showers, with a few snowflakes/freezing rain possibly mixing in during the cooler periods overnight. Lows near 30°.  Wind: S turning NW 15-30 mph, easing up overnight.

Thursday: Mostly sunny.  Highs in the lower & middle 40s.

Friday: Partly cloudy, with a slight chance for a few flurries in the morning. Highs in the middle & upper 40s.
