At Stevens Field the high today was 81 and the low this morning was 50. The cold spots dipped into the low 40s this morning. Humidity this afternoon has bottomed out at 30%. Winds at the airfield hit 16mph today.
Precip summary… The rain lottery winners were Jerry and Steve near Forest Lake.
The upper level high is parked over the Great Basin and will stay there for the next 7 days. Clockwise flow around the high is out of the north in our region. Moisture and instability are waning, but we’ll still see hit and miss afternoon showers thunderstorms.
Temps will remain slightly above average and the drier air will lead to cooler morning temps – dry air results in bigger temperature swings between highs and lows.
