National Weather Service Twin Cities/Chanhassen MN
332 PM CDT Sun Oct 15 2017

.DISCUSSION...
A ridge of high pressure extended northward into Minnesota and
Wisconsin from its center in Kansas. This will bring light winds
and dry weather to much of the region tonight. After that, the
weather will turn warmer and remain dry as the jet stream shifts
northward into Canada for the next several days. A pair of weak
fronts will move through the area Monday night and again on
Wednesday, but no precipitation is expected. The next chance of
rain will not occur until early Saturday and into Sunday.
