We finally did it! We shook off our latest storm system that has plagued us since last week and we were treated with a great day across the region! The only problem is that this was a temporary break from this storm system; more on that in a bit. Look for clear skies to stick around through tonight and that will be good news for those looking to catch a glimpse of the northern lights. While the auroras were visible here in Rochester last night, making the prediction that they will be out tonight is tough! The energy from the solar wind (which comes from the sun) is what drives the auroras and this energy can be incredibly finicky to predict into the future. With the said, there still could be enough energy left over from our latest solar storm to trigger a visible aurora as far south as northern Iowa through tonight. Be sure to get away from city lights and have a clear look at the northern horizon. The auroras appear to pulse up and down so they may not be visible at all times during the night!
Alright, back to our latest storm system! An area of low pressure will head back to the northwest on Friday and that means clouds will increase from east to west starting Friday morning with mostly cloudy skies possible by the afternoon. An isolated shower may sneak into far southeast Minnesota or northeast Iowa Friday evening, but I think most folks should remain dry for any high school football games! Isolated rain showers will linger into Saturday before wrapping up by Sunday with hopefully a bit more sunshine by Sunday afternoon. Temperatures will range from the mid 60s on Friday and Saturday to the upper 60s by Sunday.
