GENERAL PICTURE:

A fairly active pattern will continue, although not quite as active as it has been in the past few weeks. The forecast for Haydays is looking quite good.

1-4 DAY FORECAST:

A front will work through the SE Midwest today, bringing some showers and thunderstorms to areas there. A weak upper air disturbance will also bring a few showers and isolated thunderstorms to SE MN, NE, IA, S. WI and far northern IL.

Things will be dry elsewhere today and in most areas tomorrow, with some showers and thunderstorms getting organized in the west later tomorrow. That area of showers and thunderstorms will be part of the next system to work through the region. I will let the maps do most of the talking with where I expect it to rain and when, but will point out that the rains will be ending in the NW by Thursday night and then in the rest of the region Friday night or early Sat.

Temps will run in the 70ís in the northern 1/3rd of the region today, with 80ís elsewhere. By tomorrow and into Thursday, 80ís look to occur in most areas, with some 70ís hanging on in the far northern Northwoods. Humidity levels will be at moderate levels in most of the region through Thursday as well.

Cooler and less humid air will build into the region behind the system for the second half of this week.

5-10 DAY FORECAST:

The forecast for Sunday and Monday sees dry weather to occur in most of the region, with comfortable temps and humidity Sunday and a warming trend commencing on Monday.

Some warming and a bump in humidity will occur by the middle of next week, ahead of the next cold front that will roll through and bring chances for showers and thunderstorms as well as cooler and less humid air by the middle to end of the week.

Haydays:

Over the weekend, changes were made in the forecast for this event. It now looks like the cold front will pass through the region later Thursday, setting the stage for Canadian High Pressure to dominate things for Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The high will bring dry weather for the event, along with comfortable temps and humidity levels. Highs on Friday look to be in the mid 60ís, with low 70ís for Saturday and mid 70ís for Sunday. Humidity levels look to be low, with dewpoints largely in the 40ís, which will allow lows to also drop into the low 50ís and upper 40ís. All in all, except for some dust, things look to be near perfect at this point.
