KTTC Precision Forecast

Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image
  • 68°
  • 54°

A cold front is poised to swing through the area today, bringing an end to our unseasonably mild spell and also producing showers and thunderstorms ahead of it as it moves into the Upper Mississippi Valley. Expect thundershowers through the morning and then full scale clearing in the midday hours as that front moves away to the east and drier, slightly cooler air blows in from the northwest. We'll have enjoy plenty of sunshine this afternoon with high temperatures in the upper 60s. Winds will occasionally reach 35 miles per hour behind that front, making for a windy afternoon. We'll have a sun filled and tranquil Tuesday with more seasonable temperatures. A large storm system will move in on Wednesday, likely producing rain and storms for us for Wednesday afternoon through Thursday and even part of Friday. Cooler air will move in for the weekend, but sunshine and drier weather is expected.
