Friday brought drier weather…
Northwesterly winds took over last night and gusted to 35 mph to end the work week. The rain dried up and sunshine took over for a time Friday. Clouds increased again later in the afternoon, and there is a chance of flurries early in the evening. Temperatures rose into the middle and upper 30s for the afternoon.

Flooding continues…
The combination of warming, heavy snow pack and rain brought flooding to the region. Various flood warnings will continue in effect in many areas for the next several days, especially along the tributaries of the Mississippi River. Localized ponding of water on some roads and streets could continue for several hours.

Cool and calm weekend…
This weekend will be below normal with highs in the upper 30s to lower 40s. That means the rate of snow melt will decrease and ease the flooding a bit. Overnight temperatures will be colder, too. Expect lower to middle 20s. It should be a nice weekend to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day!

Another warming trend begins next week…
Highs will return to the lower 50s, especially later in the week. That means more rapid snow melt will resume. There are no major storms to contend with, so that should help out in the flooding category. Expect some to continue because of the widespread snow cover still in place.
