StormTeam Outlook For July 17th, 2018
Another Nice Day Before Ending Wet!
High pressure is well in control and will stay that way through Wednesday. However, the area of high pressure giving us such beautiful weather conditions will slide to the east and put us in a southerly flow. Why is this important? This means more warmth and more moisture. More warmth and more moisture typically leads to showers and thunderstorms. Currently, we are watching a low set to come out of the plains and merge with an upper level trough. This merger will cause the surface low to slow down and take its time as its crossing Minnesota and Wisconsin. Rain looks to hold off until about noon for the Twin Ports Thursday. Once the rain starts it will be pretty steady through Saturday morning because of the slow nature of the surface low. Heavy rains are once again possible in flood stricken areas of east central Minnesota and west central Wisconsin. The slow moving low still looks to influence part of the Northland into Saturday as wrap around moisture is possible east of the Twin Ports. A ridge of warmer air and sunshine returns by Sunday to save the weekend.
