Forecast Text



May 25, 2017


No major changes and as always, the text is abbreviated in the warm season forecasts, so see the maps for more. The pattern will remain active enough to provide some challenges to outdoor activity…especially in the SE 2/3rds of the region. However, it will remain to be the case were no one spot will be socked into wet weather for the next 4 days.

For today, the risk for showers and thunderstorms will be confined to the extreme eastern UP, most of lower MI, eastern IN and most of OH.

Tomorrow looks dry in most areas, with some widely scattered showers and possible in the far north.

Saturday sees rains possible in most of the south and Sunday finds rain chances across the Dakotas, MN, northern 2/3rds of WI and then into most of MI, IN and OH.

The Temps will be running below average across the region in the next 3-4 days, with highs in the Northwoods in the 60’s and then upper 60’s to 70’s in most of the rest of the region.


The outlook for Monday still sees some rains to impact the northern 1/2 of the Midwest, with things generally quiet elsewhere.

Tue-Thursday of next week still looks to be mainly dry in most of the region, the the next rain event working into the west by around Friday.

Temps will run a bit below average through most of the holiday weekend and then as we work through next week, readings look to warm to around average, which would put 60’s in the northern 1/3rd of the region, with 80’s in the southern 1/3rd and 70’s in between.
