Forecast: Sunny and Warmer Today – A Cool, Wet Weekend Ahead
Sunny, mild weather is in the forecast for the next couple of days, but that is going to change as we head into the weekend. The weekend and early next week will be much cooler with a decent chance of rain, possibly snow in some places.
Today will be partly cloudy to mostly sunny with high temps in the upper 70s. There is a cold front in North Dakota this morning and that front will drift through later today into tonight, bringing a chance of late day and nighttime showers and thundershowers followed by slightly cooler temperatures tomorrow. The sun will shine tomorrow but high temps will only reach the upper 60s in the North, low 70s in the South.
Another cold front will zip through tomorrow night, bringing even cooler air into the region for the weekend. There will be some sunshine on Friday, but high temps will only reach the upper 50s.
Another system will develop in the Rocky Mountains late Friday and bring rain and possibly even snow to parts of our region late Friday night into Saturday morning. Depending on the temperature, some places north of I-90 could get some accumulation. Sunday will be slightly warmer and mostly dry with more cold and scattered rain possible through early next week.
It's still early, but our latest models are suggesting that some places could get a half inch to an inch or more of rain throughout the weekend. It's also too early to get specific with snow potential or snow totals. Right now, I'm basically just letting you know that snow is a possibility. Stay tuned for updates. We'll get more specific with rain and possible snow totals as we get closer to the weekend.
In addition to the possibility of rain and snow, the weekend is also going to be cold. Saturday will likely be the coldest day of the weekend with highs only reaching the upper 40s to low 50s. High temps will stay well below average through early next week. Long range models are suggesting that temperatures will climb back to at least average by mid to late next week.
