Monday, July 14 Forecast Discussion

Bit by bit today, high pressure is losing its influence across the Twin States. Temperatures have still climbed into the lower 90s, but showers and storms are starting to pop this afternoon. We will see those dissipate after sunset as our eyes shift north to a cold front that will be approaching the area.

The front looks to arrive to northern parts of the viewing area by sunrise and have cleared most locations by about 1pm. Showers and storms will accompany the front, with a storm or two possibly getting strong with gusty winds. Rain and clouds will clear out through the evening as much cooler and drier air settles over the area.

Lows Wednesday morning will be nearly ten degrees colder than what we will see Tuesday morning with the chance of us tying the record low of 61 (1987) set on Thursday. Highs Tuesday will struggle to the middle 80s with all of us staying in the lower to middle 80s on Wednesday before we return to the upper 80s for Thursday.

Wednesday looks to be the only completely dry day this week. Another system will arrive from our west late Thursday into Friday, bringing us a very soggy Friday with highs held down into the lower 80s. Rain chances back off through the rest of the weekend as high pressure attempts to return to the area, with showers still present in decent coverage for Saturday. Sunday and Monday will see more isolated showers and storms as highs return to the lower 90s and lows return to the 70s.
