StormTeam Outlook: Wednesday, July 23
Benjamin Dery, Meteorologist
Nice Stretch of Weather
High pressure takes back control of the Northland. This means lighter winds, patchy cumulus clouds, and quiet weather. No major headlines from the weather department. Both today and tomorrow should be great for getting outdoors.
Temperatures may even feel cool compared to earlier this week! Most of us will reach into the low to mid 70s, just a few degrees shy of average. Winds turns southerly by Thursday, and a few showers are possible across our southern MN zones by Thursday night.
We have showery intervals in the forecast from Friday through Sunday perhaps with a stray thunderstorm mixed in. The best chance for showers Saturday lies along our northern viewing area, and the rain threat should end by Sunday morning.
Another "cooler" stretch is headed our way next week with highs only in the low 70s Sunday through Tuesday.
Have a great day!
