Widespread showers are likely on Wednesday as our next weather-maker approaches the upper Midwest. Showers are expected to move into the region late in the morning and last through 6-8 p.m. Wednesday. Dry conditions settle in for Thursday, however, they won’t last too long. Another weather-maker will sweep across the upper Midwest on Friday and Saturday. Some isolated thunderstorms could form due to this system. We’ll keep an eye on thunderstorms chances for Friday and Saturday as we move later into the week.

Highs do warm into the upper 60s and lower 70s on Saturday with the chance of isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms. Unfortunately, colder conditions are expected in the upper Midwest next week and even into May. Don

Don’t get too used to the warm conditions later this week. Our temperature outlook for April 25th through May 3rd looks to be well below average for the upper Midwest. We’re sitting close to a 50-70% chance of having below-average temperatures through that 7-9 day stretch. Sorry!
