Check out how close freezing temperatures get to our viewing area by early tomorrow morning! 20s from northern Illinois to Minnesota! Quite a potent cold airmass for September!
After 68-76 today (northwest to southeast), it will tank to mid 50s late this evening & 40s by 11 p.m. You will need a warm jacket for the Frenzy!
Note how as quickly as the cold moves south, it is pushed back north. Front will will back north as a warm front tomorrow night.
It looks warm, breezy to windy & increasingly humid Sunday-Wednesday! If you have plans for this weekend, plan for 60s with jeans, then 81 with shorts Sunday! Other than a couple isolated showers/storms Saturday night as the warm lifts northward, the weekend will be dry!
Note the remnants of Major Hurricane Rosa from the Pacific racing inland, dragging a cold front with showers & storms in our area late week.
More rain will occur at the end of next week with a very sharp gradient of winter to the northern U.S. & endless summer to the southeastern U.S. Snow could fall from the Dakotas to Minnesota.
Some forecast craziness still is a possibility as remnants of another Major Pacific hurricane move inland, merge with very cold air & a Rockies system. This could bring a significant early-season snowstorm/blizzard to the Rockies & High Plains.
This system could actually really warm us up, however, followed by a big cool-down.
