Wow. This just might be the best weather of the year. Sunshine, low humidity, and no mosquitoes (yet). Dry weather continues through the weekend. Soak up the rays while you can, showers and storms return next week.
Our first taste of summer humidity hits Monday. Dewpoints surge into the 60s, maybe even close to 70 degrees. This could make for a slightly more uncomfortable ride. Whenever the dewpoint temperatures gets above 60 degrees the evaporation process of water droplets off the skin is slowed and the body cannot readily cool itself.
Rain will likely hinder any off-road riding early next week anyways. Thunderstorms develop as a sharp cold front arrives from the Northwest. Strong southerly winds ahead of the front will transport the high dewpoint air and moisture into the Twin Cities. As a result, a few soggy days are in the offering next week. Bet on the trainer or pavement riding by then.
Rainfall next week
The lake water is still much, much colder than the air temperature...even though you may be tempted to take a dip this weekend! Under the clear sky, the visible satellite showed how the cool, stable air around the lakes prevented fair weather cumulus clouds from developing. A common sight to see this time of year.
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.
