ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – Our weeklong stretch of mild weather continues today, but with some rain chances in the area as a storm system approaches from the west. We’ll have a few sparse, light showers in the morning with sunshine breaking through the clouds at times, especially in the midday hours. A stray shower or isolated thunderstorm will be possible again in the late afternoon and evening hours as the center of the storm system wobbles through the Upper Mississippi Valley. High temperatures will be in the low 70s with a slight southwest breeze.

Thursday will start with the passage of a potent cold front through the area which will bring sparse, light rain showers for the early morning hours. We’ll have occasional sunshine for the rest of the day with gusty, cool winds. Temperatures will be in the low 50s in the early morning, but readings will only climb to the upper 50s in the afternoon as the colder Canadian air will offset our sunshine. North wind gusts of around 25 miles per hour will add an extra chill to the air.

After a frosty Friday morning, the afternoon will feature abundant cool sunshine with a slight north breeze. High temperatures will only be in the upper 40s to low 50s which is about 15 degrees below the seasonal average.

A hard freeze will be possible Friday night into early Saturday morning as temperatures in much of the area will dip into the upper 20s. Temperatures will climb quickly during the day, however, thanks to a mostly sunny sky and a gusty west breeze that will work to pull in some warmer air. High temperatures will be in the upper 60s Saturday.

We’ll have plenty of sunshine on Sunday as well, but with lighter winds and high temperatures will be in the seasonable mid-60s.

We'll have blustery, cool weather Thursday with a hard freeze possible Friday night.
