.DISCUSSION...

Cooler temperatures will be the trend for the upcoming week,
especially by the end of the week. Highs today will be in the mid
60s to around 70 degrees today. With very dry air in place, relative
humidity values will still drop to 20 to 30 percent. Winds will
increase out of the southwest this afternoon, and become breezy.

A cold front dropping across the region tonight will bring only a
slight chance of light rain showers. The main change will be
stronger winds, out of the northwest, on Monday behind the cold
front. Expect frequent gusts of 35 to 45 mph, with the lightest
winds over western Minnesota. Relative humidity values will fall to
25 to 30 percent, mainly west of the Missouri River. After a break
from the strong winds on Wednesday, windy conditions should develop
again Thursday.
