Rainy & Mild through the Weekend, Severe Weather Possible to our East

Posted: Updated:

Scattered showers will be found across the area over the next couple of days as a couple different low pressure centers move through the northern part of the country. Plenty of cloud cover and even some fog can be expected as moisture levels increase through Saturday and into Sunday. Here is a look at the anticipated dewpoints across the area for Saturday and then Sunday.

Dewpoints climb into the 40's around here but top 60 in parts of the Ohio Valley going into Sunday. These high moisture values could lead to a couple isolated thunderstorms across far southeastern Minnesota today and Sunday, but chances for severe weather return for Iowa and Illinois on Saturday and will shift eastward and expand on Sunday. This is the first time in 8 years that the storm prediction center has issued a moderate risk for severe weather one day in advance during the month of November. Here are the severe weather outlooks for the country for the weekend.

Slight risk of severe weather goes from the northern Plains to the southern Great Lakes and Ohio and Tennessee Valleys during the weekend. 50 million Americans could be impacted by these storms as they trudge eastward. What these will bring is some much needed rain to many areas. Here is a peek at the liquid precipitation forecast through Monday morning.

Areas that receive thunderstorms will likely end up with the most rain, upwards of 2 inches in some local spots. But widespread rainfall should be on the order of a half inch to an inch. Around our neck of the woods though, far less can be anticipated with areas getting a quarter inch at best.

The one thing this storm will be missing that so many November storms typically have will be the snow. Cold air will take far too long to sink into the area as the low pressure system goes by. This delay in the cold will keep temperatures above freezing long enough to prevent any snow from falling before the precipitation moves east. Check out the probability forecast for snowfall amounts great than 2 inches from now through Tuesday morning.

All will stay north in Canada with a half inch or an inch possible from Lake of the Woods to International Falls.
