Brighter Day Today

Todd's Conservation MN Outlook for the Twin Cities and all of Minnesota

Thursday: Sun much of the day, lukewarm. Showers and T-storms arrive Thursday night. High: 76

Thursday night: Showers and thunderstorms likely, crossing fingers to be lulled to sleep by a few rumbles of thunder. Low: 57

Friday: A mix of clouds and sun, with scattered thundershowers. High: 76

Saturday: Unsettled with intervals of sun, a few T-storms in the area (but no all-day rain expected). High: 74

Sunday: Plenty of sun, pleasant (PM showers expected up north). High: 75

Monday: Sun and clouds mixture. High: 76

Tuesday: Partly sunny, growing PM thunderstorm chance. High: 77

Wednesday: Slight chance of showers early. High: Approaching 80

Zonal Flow

The weather continues to remain active across the nation as a “Zonal Flow” sets up bringing in waves of energy from the Pacific with great frequency. Zonal flow means that the strong upper level winds are running from west to east in a linear pattern, which tends to keep temperatures similar from day to day.

Next Precip Chance:

Temperatures close to home in the 70s will not deviate much over the next few days, but every 24 to 36 hours rain chances increase. Look, our next best chance of thundershowers comes in Thursday night through Friday. Below is the 6 hour precipitation accumulation at 7am Friday - the bulls eye seems to be over east central Minnesota.

Weekend rain chances will be monitored though don't be worried if you have grad parties/etc. It won't be a wash out. Only spotty stuff is expected through the weekend.

Happy graduation to all the grads out there and best wishes for blue skies
