Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image
  • 77°

For many, today is the first day of school.  Showers and a few rumbles of thunder did end up surviving the night and tracked through the area this morning.  They are moving quickly off to the east and southeast, but kids from Mankato eastward should bring a raincoat just to be safe.

These showers are moving away very quickly, so the sun will come out in full force later this morning.  This will help to warm us to 77 today.  Winds will blow from the W at 5-10 MPH.  A few more clouds will return overnight.  Southwest Minnesota may see some showers and storms.  Low of 59 with WSW winds at 5-10 MPH.

The clouds overnight signal that warmer, muggier air is entering the area.  Highs will rise all the way to 85 tomorrow thanks to the help of winds from the S at 10-25 MPH.  This environment will make it possible for isolated storms to form, some of which could be heavy.

It stays warm for Thursday, but it will be warm early before it cools off thanks to a powerful cold front.  This front will also bring some scattered showers and storms.  Highs will be around 86.

By Friday, many areas will struggle to reach 70.  Low 70's will stay with us all through the weekend.
