Strong storm system heading up the Mississippi River will have some big affects for us tonight and tomorrow. Highlights: (1) Heavy rain this evening should be strongest between 6P.M. and 10 P.M. Rain should fade quickly after midnight. (2) Very strong winds late tonight and all day tomorrow. Winds will be picking up after midnight and increase to 20-25 mph (steady winds) with gusts 35-40 mph through tomorrow with slow weakening Tuesday. (3) Colder temperatures move in again. We’ll stay in the 50’s tonight then fall during the day tomorrow into the 40’s and near 30 by Tuesday morning.
A weak Alberta Clipper will move across the area Wednesday with a good chance for some light rain and/or snow showers. Colder air follows the Clipper and makes a windy cold Thanksgiving Day – temperatures in the 30’s with some flurries possible.
