Brandon Weatherz: Windy today, cooler tomorrow
The strong low pressure system responsible for last night’s thunderstorms will continue to influence our weather today with strong winds, additional showers, and an eventual cool down. A Wind Advisory is in effect until 4 p.m. with a south wind 15-25 mph gusting near 45 mph. Temperatures start off mild in 50s and 60s this morning, then highs stay in low to upper 60s. Cooler conditions settle into the Northland tonight with lows returning to the 30s. Tuesday will then be a quiet and cooler day with highs mostly in the 40s.
An early round showers and thunderstorms moves from southwest to northeast toward the Canadian border through the morning. The cold front passing this afternoon and evening will bring additional showers to east central Minnesota, the Arrowhead and northwest Wisconsin. We dry out from west to east overnight. The rest of the week will be quiet and dry. A few showers may try to move into the region from the west Thursday evening and overnight, and that’s it for precipitation chances as of now. Mild temperatures and sunshine arrive Friday and linger through the weekend.
