WLDY-WJBL NEWS 9-2-20 Plenty of sunshine will is on tap today as a ridge builds into our region.

A cold front in association with this low will make quick progress through the Plains and Minnesota by Wednesday evening as well. Heading into early Thursday morning, cloud cover will increase, though moisture will be lacking but we may see a brief shower early Thursday morning. Once the front moves through however, skies will become partly sunny again quite quickly, while a wind shift will bring another shot of cooler air back into the region.
