Drastic Temperature Changes and Lots More Rain On the Horizon

As I write this, it’s mostly sunny and 83 degrees on Wednesday afternoon.

Don’t get used to it.

A drastic cold front will be sweeping across the area and some forecast models indicate the area could get upwards of four inches of rain over the next couple of days. Highs tomorrow are only expected to be in the mid-50’s. Torrential rain isn’t expected — good news for area streams and rivers — but a steady, persistent rain will dampen the good stretch of weather we’ve enjoyed over the last couple of days. Let’s all hope the Dogwood Parade and festivities are enjoyed with fair — albeit much cooler — weather.

If you’re planning any travel to the North, expect this precipitation to be a SNOW event! In May? Southern Minnesota could see a foot of snow from this system.

The photo above was taken just a short couple of weeks ago at Quincy’s Clat Adams Park. While the Mississippi River stages have dropped several feet since that picture was snapped, here’s hoping this latest round of rain doesn’t inch the Mighty Mississippi back up to ┬áthese levels any time soon.
