By mid April, the temperature gradient north to south across the country can be extreme. The higher sun angle begins to really warm the southern states, whereas cold air every so often spills over the northern states from Canada. This large temperature contrast often creates strong areas of low pressure capable of whipping up high winds and severe storms.
Minnesota will be void of any severe weather but the wind will continue to howl. The stiff breeze has resulted in high evaporation rates and one by one, the MORC trails have opened again. With limited rain this week, wildfires will be a top concern.
