      • 75°

      Today will be a nice day with sunshine and less humidity, though it will be breezy! With a northwest wind between 10 and 25 mph, small trees will sway and small branches will drop in yards. A surface high will slowly slide from southwestern Canada over the north central United States, bringing favorable weather to our region. Tonight, the sky will be clear and the wind will be lighter. Temperatures will drop from the middle 70s, our highs this afternoon, into the lower 50s overnight. Wednesday will be partly cloudy and a little cooler with highs in the lower 70s. An upper-level wave with energy will drop from central Canada into the Upper Midwest late in the day, possibly kicking up a few, light showers or sprinkles. Thursday and Friday will be quiet with sunshine and highs in the lower 70s. This weekend, another upper-level wave and a weak cold front may produce scattered showers and thunderstorms Saturday afternoon through Sunday. Thankfully, the severe threat is low, and a washout is not expected at this time. Have a fantastic day! Stormtracker 18 Weather Chief Meteorologist Nick Grunseth
