This week could feature some of the best weather of the entire summer. Cool, dry Canadian air will make for comfortable conditions through Wednesday. Hard to beat dewpoints in the 50s this late in June! Expect a passing thundershower Thursday. Otherwise, dry high pressure may keep rain away for the majority of the 4th of July weekend ahead. Fingers crossed!
The area remains locked under a persistence northwesterly flow aloft. This will continuously channel low dewpoint air into Minnesota. By Thursday, however, a small blip of energy imbedded within this upper level flow will kick off thundershowers Wednesday night - Thursday. Meager moisture amounts along with very little forcing in the atmosphere will result in little rainfall this week. Expecting trails to be in good shape!
Forecast rainfall amounts by Thursday barely top a quarter of an inch...just enough to settle the dust on the singletrack. After Thursday, the next chance of rain MAY be on the 4th of July Monday. Stay tuned.
Summer brings warm afternoons perfect for biking, but the summer heat and humidity can also spark thunderstorms and severe weather. Be prepared for any type of adverse weather headed your way with Aeris Pulse.
