WEATHER STORY: Last night's rain ran anywhere from a half inch to three inches plus around our region. Now, at least for the month of September, we have a two inch rain surplus. So, we can now enjoy a couple of sunny and dry days without feeling too guilty. However, the dry spell comes with a clear sky and that will lead to a Frost Advisory for inland parts of Minnesota and Wisconsin. Lakeside communities will be a little warmer. Most of the week ahead will indeed be dry with only one or two rainy exceptions. Temperatures will be near normal most of the week for daytime highs even if the lows get a little brisk.
TUESDAY NIGHT: High air pressure pressing down from Canada will clear the sky and cool the surface. Low temperatures will go from 31 inland to 40 by Lake Superior. The wind will be NW 5-10 mph.
WEDNESDAY: The new high air pressure cell will make the sky sunny. The high temperature range be 62-68. The normal high is around 66. The wind will be W 5-10 for MN and E 5-10 for WI and the U.P.
THURSDAY: The high will continue to clear the sky on Thursday. The morning low temp will be around 43. The high will go back to 67. The wind will be S 5-10 mph.
COMING UP: A low pressure system will bring the week's only chance of rain Friday and Saturday. Those two days will get 30-40% chances for showers. After that, the sun will return. This week's highs will run 60-68. The morning lows will go 40-47 once we shake off the Wednesday morning Frost Advisory.
