...Cool, Showery Next Few Days...

.DISCUSSION...A low pressure system will bring rounds of showers
to the region into Tuesday. Today, the bulk of the precipitation
will hold along and south of Interstate 90. But on Sunday, rain will
become widespread, persisting through Monday, and finally exiting
early Tuesday. For the local area, the heavier rain potential will
come Sunday afternoon and evening. A few thunderstorms also possible
during this time. Winds will pick up ahead of the low from the east
Sunday night, staying strong as they swing to the northwest Monday
night (as the low exits northeast). Some snow could mix in with the
rain for parts of southeast Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin as
the storm system exits, but any snow accumulation looks to occur
farther west.
