WLDY WJBL NEWS 9-14-20 After nearly a week of well below average temperatures, the return of more typical late summer warmth has begun. Some extra clouds may continue to be around at times today which will play a role in afternoon high temperatures. A weak front just to our north is expected to lift back to the north as a warm front through the day, while staying dry with highs again in the seasonable low 70′s. A low pressure system will be developing and sliding along the Canadian border near the Dakotas into Tuesday, with a trailing cold front to the southwest. As high pressure sits to our east, a strengthening gradient will develop over the Upper Midwest, leading to stronger southwest winds and warmer air returning on Tuesday. It will be the warmest day this week as we see highs return to the low 80′s under a mostly sunny sky. Southwest flow will continue at night with a mainly clear sky and mild temperatures, only dropping down into the lower 60′s. The front will start to make a run into the state on Wednesday but with limited moisture it will arrive dry with still a decent amount of sunshine, as winds shift to the west and northwest during the afternoon. It should also be a bit cooler with highs in the mid 70′s.
