…Weather Summary…

A nice stretch of weather is underway.

Strong low pressure has moved to near Hudson Bay Canada today with high pressure heading into the northern Plains. Gusty northwest winds were occurring in the Northland today due to a tight pressure gradient between the low and high. Cold air advection in wake of Sunday’s low has dropped 850mb temperatures to +8 to +10C today.

Fairly tranquil weather conditions through midweek as high pressure moves slowly E-SE out of the northern Plains. About the only weather issue will be some areas of fog late at night into the early morning hours, otherwise we’re looking at mostly clear skies through Wednesday.

Lows tonight and Tuesday night in the 40s and 50s. Highs Tuesday ranging from around 70 to the middle 70s with highs Wednesday in the 70s to around 80.

Southerly flow develops later this week as high pressure scoots off to the east. Will see an increase in dew points (humidity) Thursday and Friday so it will be turning muggier later this week. Also looks warm with highs Thursday and Friday mainly in the 80s.

Looks like we could be dealing with some scattered showers or thunderstorms in parts of the Northland late this week into the weekend, but doesn’t look like complete washouts at this time.
