StormTeam Outlook: Saturday, April 18th
Expect a Soaker of a Sunday
A large upper-level low pressure system is going to impact our weather over the next few days beginning tonight. A large swath of rain in southern Minnesota and Iowa will continue to move north and reach the Northland overnight tonight. A steady rain will fall through tomorrow with a little snow mixing in tonight along the Arrowhead of Minnesota. by tomorrow night, the majority of the Northland will see about an inch of rain. However, it doesn't end there.
The upper-level low will spin off a few pieces of energy as it slides out of the Rockies and across the Upper Midwest. This will keep us in the target area for scattered rain and snow showers through Wednesday. Additionally, a north and northwest flow will keep temperatures about 10-15° below average through Wednesday.
Looking ahead, high pressure will finally push the slow moving storm system out of the Great Lakes Wednesday night into Thursday. This will lead to sunshine for rest of the workweek and the start of the next weekend with temperatures climbing back up to the upper 40s and low 50s.
Thanks for reading and enjoy the rest of the weekend!
