-Here’s the NAEFS 8-14 day global temperature outlook valid August 11-17, 2013. Kind of interesting to see all the warmer than average temperatures (red color) surrounding much of the U.S. where cooler than average (blue color) temperatures are forecast.

Forecast Discussion for NE Minnesota and NW Wisconsin
Short Term Forecast – Confidence: High.
Tonight (August 3)
Clear to partly cloudy skies are expected with lows in the 40s and 50s with 30s in the traditional cold spots. Light winds are apt to continue.
Sunday and Sunday Night (August 4)
Dry during the day with highs in the 60s and 70s under partly to mostly cloudy skies. Could see some showers develop Sunday Night with lows mainly in the 50s. Winds will be out of the south, north or east at 5 to 15 mph.
Extended Forecast – Confidence: High.
Monday through Wednesday (August 5-7)
Could get some showers at times Monday and Tuesday. Monday’s activity would be caused by an upper level disturbance, and then on Tuesday will see a cold front and upper level trough move across the Upper Midwest. Thunderstorm potential looks pretty low at the moment with less than impressive amounts of moisture and instability showing up on Today’s model runs. High temperatures will be in the 60s and 70s Monday-Wednesday with lows Monday Night in the 50s to around 60 degrees. Lows Tuesday Night will be in the 40s and 50s.
Long Range Forecast – Confidence: High.
Nothing much going on in this portion of the forecast. Yes a few showers may occur from time to time, but there aren’t any organized systems showing up in the long range model data. Below to near average temperatures are forecast during this period.
