Isolated Storms Tonight – Thursday


Closings & Delays –  Iowa Road ConditionsMinnesota Road Conditions


An area of high pressure has kept our weather pretty quiet and comfortable throughout much of this week, but those clouds are back and the dewpoints are beginning to climb a little bit higher. Some isolated storms will be possible for tonight and through the day on Thursday. A weak cold front will be moving through on Thursday afternoon which will continue the threat for isolated storms. There is a marginal risk for severe weather meaning that one or two storms could become severe. The big threats would be for some wind and hail, but widespread severe weather is not anticipated for Thursday.

The clouds will move out Thursday night as yet another area of high pressure builds in for Friday. This will mean the return of sunshine and highs in the 70’s to begin the holiday weekend. Temperatures will be climbing back into the lower 80’s by the 4th and even the mid 80’s by next Tuesday. Plan on those warm and muggy conditions to stick around into next week.
