A more seasonal trend is developing in the weather and it will stick around into next week. The pattern should be a little drier as well.
Plenty of sunshine will be in the area for the rest of today and it will be less humid. High temps should reach the low to mid 80s and winds will be out of the northwest at around 10 mph. You will notice that it feels a little “fresher” outside, instead of muggy.
Temperatures will cool down a little more over the weekend. The mercury will top out in the low 80s on Saturday and the upper 70s on Sunday. There will be a mix of sun and clouds and not much threat of precipitation. One weak wave of low pressure will be moving through Minnesota on Saturday and it is close enough that there could be a few scattered showers on Saturday afternoon or evening, but the odds are looking a little less than what we had forecast during the last couple of days.
Monday is still looking quite nice with low humidity, sunny to partly cloudy skies, and high temps in the low 80s. A warm front moving into the state from the southwest will bring a chance of thunderstorms late Monday night and probably turn things more humid for Tuesday.
Scattered thunderstorms are possible off-and-on for Tuesday, then the weather should dry up once again for Wednesday and Thursday. Highs should be in the low 80s for Tuesday and Wednesday, and then reach the low to mid 80s on Thursday.
Have a stupendous Friday! Meteorologist Justin Loew, 4:30 a.m. 10-July-2020
