Brandon Weatherz: Milder today, cooler tomorrow

[anvplayer video=”5174362″ station=”998130″]

Temperatures finally rise near average today with highs in low 50s to low 60s. This will be short-lived with unseasonably cool conditions returning as soon as tomorrow and lingering through the weekend. This period will also continue to be rather gloomy and wet.

The gloomy streak began with a round of rain overnight. That moisture has left us with areas of fog to contend with for the morning commute. Have the headlights on and be ready to slow down as visibility may change quickly. The early morning rain tapers off to the east, but cloudy skies remain today. Rain returns from the south this evening and overnight. Periods of rain then linger Friday.

A slow moving system will keep wet weather with us Saturday into Monday. In that time, snow will occasionally mix in, particularly looking north across the Arrowhead and east across the South Shore. Even in these areas, accumulation should be minimal as temperatures remain near and above freezing. This system will keep cool air and a rain/snow combo in the Northland into Monday, then we trend back to warmer and more typical May weather by the middle of the week.
