Forecast: Cooler Air Coming
The same weather system that plastered the Dakotas with as much as 46" (not a typo) of snow will skirt through the metro region this morning. Not much will be left of it, but a few showers could develop. The system's main impact will be, in its wake, to usher in cooler air for tomorrow and the beginning of next week.
Chance of a.m. showers, then clearing. 60-65. The cold front associated with the once powerful Northern Plains storm, will glide through the area this morning, offering a 50/50 chance of showers. The showers shouldn't last more than a couple hours. By late morning and early afternoon, skies will brighten from west to east, with high temperatures reach the low-to-mid 60s. Winds from the west will blow at around 10 mph, and diminish by evening.
Mostly clear and cool overnight with lows dropping from 32-36 in the colder suburbs to the low 40s downtown.
Keep reading for the forecast through Veteran's Day.
Mostly sunny and seasonably cool. 55-59. Weak high pressure builds in from the west, giving us a mostly sunny day. Despite the sun, a moderately cool airmass will likely hold high temperatures below 60. Winds will generally be light and out of the west at about 5-10 mph.
Overnight, it will likely be partly cloudy and chilly, with lows 29-36 in the suburbs, with upper 30s in the city.
Under high pressure, it will be mostly sunny and seasonable Monday, with highs in the mid-to-upper 50s. Clear overnight with lows 28-38 (suburbs-city). Confidence: Medium-High
For Veteran's Day (Tuesday), clouds will likely increase as moisture creeps into the region from the southwest ahead of the next storm system. Most of the day should be dry (until the late afternoon or evening), with highs in the mid-to-upper 50s. Confidence: Medium
