Weather at the beginning of the week
A period of dry, calm weather will extend throughout the work week with the first rain chances not appearing until late Friday.
So the main question every day this week will be how much sunshine there is and where the temperatures end up.
A slight northeasterly wind brought some low lake moisture to the area to start things off Monday morning. The result is a wide area of low clouds that should gradually break up as the morning progresses.
The afternoon will become mostly sunny with temperatures reaching the mid to upper 30s. Winds will remain northerly, at a speed of 5-10 knots per hour.
Skies are expected to be mostly clear tonight with lows in the low to mid 20s. Pockets are also expected in the top ten.
Tuesday will be mostly sunny, with some fluffy clouds developing in the late afternoon. Temperatures will be similar to today, with most being in the mid 30s. A light northerly breeze will continue.
Temperatures are expected to drop into the low to mid 20s Tuesday night.
High air pressure is expected to increase overhead on Wednesday, making the winds almost calm. Without northerly flow, temperatures will jump into the low 40s. The sky will be a mixture of sunshine and some passing clouds.
Mild late week
By Thursday, winds will shift to the south as high pressure moves east and low pressure develops across the northern Great Plains.
With skies remaining a mix of some clouds and a fair amount of sunshine, southerly winds will help bring temperatures back up. Look for highs on Thursday to range from the upper 40s to the low 50s.
Southerly winds are expected to strengthen Thursday evening, helping keep temperatures in the 30s overnight. This, in turn, will make Friday a continuous start. Even with increased cloud cover, highs should remain at 50 degrees or higher in most areas.
Scattered rain is likely late Friday and Friday night. None of the rain will be heavy. Overnight temperatures will remain mainly steady in the 40s.
Saturday will also see some scattered showers, but it won’t be a day. Temperatures will spend one final day at 50 degrees or higher.
Cold air will begin to seep into the area on Sunday, although it will not be that cold yet. Highs should end somewhere in the 40s as scattered showers continue.
Through next Monday, it may remain near 40 degrees before highs settle into a new pattern of the low to middle 30s. Temperatures are expected to be near average to slightly below average over the next week and into the following week.
