The morning low this morning was 43 and the current temperature as of 2:15 P.M. is 75 with partly cloudy conditions. Winds are out of the South at 12mph. Currently in the upper levels of the atmosphere, there is an upper level low over Northeast Wyoming and Southeast Montana. Over our area, we have a ridge axis stretching from Minnesota down into Tennessee which is aiding in our warm, dry conditions today. Looking at the mid-level part of the atmosphere, there is a shortwave trough located over Alabama and Georgia which has generated the rain over that area. This is the reason for the light cloud cover over our area today. Winds from the south are generating Warm Air Advection which is causing our temperature to be warm today. A 994 surface low is located over eastern Nebraska with a warm front stretching from Iowa over into Indiana. The Cold front stretches from Nebraska down into the northern Panhandle of Texas then over into New Mexico. There is nothing over our area.

Due to the winds out of the South, expecting the high temperature for today to be 76. The low tonight will be 54 and the low in the morning will be 51. The upper level low off to our northwest will move to the northeast throughout the next two days and will effect us by causing our winds to remain from the south Monday and Tuesday and a slight rain chance early Tuesday Morning. The slight rain chance on Tuesday Morning is due to the cold front which will remain just to our north, could cause some showers. Any rain that does occur will be very light. Currently watching a system that will be moving through late Wednesday and during the day on Thursday which could bring some thunderstorms into the area. Will have more on this later as the time progresses. After this system passes, temperatures will drop and models are indicating temperatures in the mid 30's which could mean potential frost, therefore keep that in mind if you plan on planting in your gardens this week.
