The region dealt with some rain and even some snow Saturday into Saturday night. The bulk of the moisture pushed out of the area by early Sunday.
It remained fairly windy Sunday despite the sunshine. High temperatures climbed into the upper 40s and lower 50s across much of the area. Many people were able to get outdoors after being homebound Saturday.
Some fog moved in Sunday night into Monday morning as light winds pushed into the state. High temperatures Monday climbed into the 50s and even some lower 60s with some sunshine.
We will see a fairly active weather pattern for Tuesday night into Friday. Some rain possibly even mixed with some snow will be possible along the way.
At this stage, it appears to be dry Saturday with a small chance of rain returning by Sunday.
The 30-Day-Outlook calls for near normal temperatures and precipitation for the month of April. In a couple of weeks, normal high temperatures are into the lower 50s – we can certainly use a little good news.
Weather history: On this date in 1882 historical records show that it was warm across the region. In fact, a “record high of 75 degrees was set at Minneapolis!”
