ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – A strong cold front has swept through the Upper Mississippi Valley, sweeping aside the soggy, wet weather and oppressive humidity we dealt with over the weekend, making for a comfortable Monday in the area. After measuring 2.88 inches of rainfall in Rochester over the weekend and more than five inches in parts of North Iowa, we’ll have blissfully dry and peaceful conditions today. Clouds will give way to sunshine with a cool north breeze drawing in drier, less humid air from Canada. High temperatures this afternoon will be in the low 70s with north winds reaching 15 miles per hour at times until they subside in the mid-afternoon.

Expect decreasing clouds with high temps in the 70s and less humidity in the air today.

Warm air will build northward into the region on Wednesday as we make our way to the low 80s, the warmest readings we’ll likely see this week. Expect plenty of warm sunshine with a slight west breeze during the day with a few passing clouds in the afternoon as a cold front approaches from the north. The rain chances associated with the front will likely stay northeast of us and we’re expecting to remain dry through the evening, even as the front pushes through the area.
