WEATHER STORY: Normal high temperature this time of year is near 58. After a day's worth of 80's on Saturday, cooler than normal temperatures have moved in and may stay here the next 7 days. And, after some showers Monday night, an extended dry period may be with us, too.
MONDAY NIGHT: There is a surface low in Iowa that is trying to push clouds into our sky. There is also an upper level trough of lower pressure in northern Ontario trying to do the same thing. The efforts of both will lead to a mostly cloudy sky here on Monday night. A few showers may pop up, too. The low temp will be near 37. The wind will be NW 5-15 mph.
TUESDAY: High air pressure will try to push into our region while the lows meander away. All three pressure systems will move in slow motion so the clearing process will take a while. Tuesday should be partly sunny but dry. High temp will be 50 which is at least eight degrees cooler than normal. The wind will be NW 10-20 mph.
WEDNESDAY: The high should win the battle for the sky and make Wednesday mostly sunny. The low should be 31. The high will make it to 53. The wind will be NW 5-15 mph.
COMING UP: The cooler than normal run of temperatures could last all the way to next Monday. The high pressure system that noses around Monday will last through Friday. Monday night, meteorologist Dave Anderson will talk about the dry stretch. Tuesday morning from 5-7 a.m., meteorologist Kaitlyn Moffett will take a gander at a weekend rain chance that may be more pipe dream than soaker.
