  • 82°
  • 65°

Parts of the viewing area managed to receive some much needed rainfall this afternoon, while other parts remained dry. Isolated pop-up showers and thunderstorms are possible across southeastern Minnesota and northeastern Iowa until sunset. Tonight, clouds will decrease some with overnight lows in the low to mid 60s. Some areas could see patchy fog development as well that will linger into the early morning hours of Friday.


High pressure pushes in for Friday bringing dry and quiet conditions that last into Saturday. High temperatures will be in the low to mid 80s with mostly sunny skies. A majority of Sunday looks dry with partly sunny skies and highs in the lower 80s. Our next chance for showers and thunderstorms moves in late Sunday as a cold front begins to push through the area. 


Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible throughout the day on Monday, making for a wet start to the work week. Expect afternoon highs to only manage to the mid 70s with rain activity wrapping up by mid evening. High pressure returns to the region once again on Tuesday bringing more comfortable temperatures that look to last into the midweek. Expect temperatures to be in the mid 70s with mostly to partly sunny skies through Thursday.
