Climbing Up The Temperature Ladder

There really isn't a whole lot happening in our world of weather in the short term, other than a nice warm-up that will start to be felt today, and more so on Wednesday.

More sunshine and a light breeze out of the SW later this afternoon will help our highs climb to the lower 50s today. A few more clouds for Wednesday, but the SW breeze will linger, allowing for even warmer temperatures, into the upper 50s & lower 60s.

The mild, mid-week temperatures are short-lived, as a large storm system will bring cloudy skies, and light rain chances to the area Thursday and again Friday. Thursday's rain chance looks extremely light, and short-lived. Friday's looks to be a little more long-lived, however the chances will be better south. Southern MN may miss out completely on the Friday-Saturday AM rain, as the system as a whole looks to clip northern IA.  

Have a great Tuesday everyone. Enjoy the warmth!
--ABC 6 Morning Meteorologist Jim Peterson
