Wednesday: Becoming mostly sunny; pleasant
Winds: N 10-15 mph
Scattered showers will come to end tonight as a cold front slowly progresses south over the area. Satellite trends show some clearing in southern Minnesota and extreme northern Iowa. Northerly winds will bring in cooler and less humid air. Areas that see clearing tonight could dip down into the mid/upper 50's. Areas where more clouds are present, readings will hold in the low 60's.
Wednesday, cool Canadian surface high pressure will move in bringing humidity levels down and some "fall" like temperatures for the rest of the week. Northwest winds will bring the fresh air in with readings in the mid/upper 70's and dew points will be in the "comfortable" range.
An upper level ridge begins to build over the northern plains during the latter half of the week. The surface high pressure will shift to the east and as the ridge moves over the area this weekend, that'll turn winds to the south allowing warmer temps back into the area for Sunday and Labor Day. Some of the models bring a disturbance close to the area Sunday night, but at this point the best chance for any rain look to be on Monday afternoon and night. Details of the timing and track will be more clear over the next couple of days.
