Midwest Heat Being Born
Posted by Jeremy Reiner
The first super-heat bubble of air formed yesterday--not here, but out in Minnesota (where just weeks ago they had 1-2 FEET of snow) as temps in the twin cities area reached the upper 90s! A piece of this super heat is heading this way--in modified form. When one goes from frost advisories to left over super-heat bubbles, one typically has to deal with some weather.
This weather will be in the form of clouds and eventually a few sprinkles and showers. It's a warm front heading this way--the leading edge of that much warmer Midwest air and these fronts are great a producing clouds, showers & even thunderstorms. No worries of t-storms this go around but clouds will take over the sky by early afternoon and then a few sprinkles by mid afternoon(3pm). By late afternoon (4pm), a few showers will be found. Many towns will stay dry but there will be a few showers for any outdoor activities later today-this evening. A few lingering showers around this evening, then dry after 9pm. Most towns will pick up less than .10" of rain.
Thursday is a warm day--no records but much warmer than where we have been--especially during the morning hours. In fact, most towns will be 10-20 degrees warmer than where we are this morning (30s). By afternoon, many cities & towns will be in the upper 70s to near 80 under mostly sunny skies. A bit breezy at times.
