.DISCUSSION...
High pressure throughout the weekend with sunshine and very dry
air expected. With high pressure close today, look for light
southerly winds with minimum RH values dipping into the 15-20%
range. Dry conditions are expected once again on Sunday with
minimum relative humidity below 25% and possibly below 20%.
A weak cool front will wash out over northern Minnesota on Monday
resulting in winds from the west. Temperatures will remain much
above normal. Minimum RH values will once again dip into the 20 to
30 percent range in northern Minnesota. A compact area of low
pressure will move through the region Monday night and Tuesday and
will bring a chance of rain showers. The rain area with this
system is rather small and slight changes in the trajectory of the
system will shift the area of precipitation.
