Too bad Mom's don't get more than just one special day! Maybe I'm just speaking for myself, but for as much as we've put them through, they should get a whole year, no? To all the Mom's out there, Happy Mother's Day!
The good news is that our wind whipped Saturday will continue to blow away quickly. Sunday will boast temperature readings in the 50s to near 60, but that dreaded wind will have subsided.
A summer-like warm front blows into town Monday with some afternoon shower potential. A warmer south breeze brings us back to near 70 then, but you won't feel the heat really until Tuesday when 80s and 90s make a return to temperature maps near you! I expect a number of those stubborn lakes, that have not yet lost their ice, will do so or be close after next week!
The heat subsides a bit Wednesday, but we'll continue a string of 70s, perhaps some 80s through much of the week. Don't be surprised if an afternoon or evening t-shower pops up this week either.
85% of the Minnesota was in a severe drought early February. Our cool, wet spring has brought that number down to only 15%, but 85% is still abnormally dry; keep the moisture coming!
SUNDAY NIGHT: Mostly clear and cool. Low: 39.
MONDAY: Turning warmer, passing PM T-shower across NE MN and NW Wisconsin? Breezy South wind. High: 68
TUESDAY: Summer-like building. 90s in southern MN? Isolated thunder across far northern MN later. Wake-up: 54. High: 87
