Rain may return late tonight and touch Tuesday, too

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00
7-20 Tuesday SPC

TONIGHT:  The three week long warm spell broke Monday as cooler high air pressure took over. However, clouds will begin to increase again tonight as a new low pressure system looks to take over. After midnight, that will mean a 30% chance for rain. Low temps will be 55-60. The wind will be E 5-10 mph.

TUESDAY:  The low will bring an 80% chance for rain showers and embedded thunderstorms. The storms yet again could become strong because the Storm Prediction Center has a marginal risk out for the southern parts of the Iron Range, East Central Minnesota, the Twin Ports and Northwest Wisconsin. The rain could be moderate to heavy at times so there's a risk for minor flash flooding. The wind will be E 5-15 mph. High temps will be 65-70. Many towns will pick up another 0.50-1.50" of rain.

WEDNESDAY:  Higher pressure will start to move in and will push the low to the east. That will leave us with a partly sunny sky. High temp will be 70-75 after morning lows of 48-53. The wind will be ENE 5-10 mph.

THURSDAY:  A warm front will approach the area so temperatures will go back up and so will humidity levels. The sky will be partly cloudy with low temp 55-60 and high temp 75-80. The wind will be SE 5-15 mph.

FRIDAY:  Yet another low pressure system will create a chance of showers and thunderstorms on Friday. Low temps will be 65-70. High temps will be 80-85. Dewpoints will be 65-70 which means muggy. The wind will be S 5-15 mph.

WEEKEND:  Saturday and Sunday will likely be hot and humid. Those factors will create thunderstorm chances both days. Lows will be 65-70. Highs will be 85-90. The wind will likely be WSW 5-15 mph.
