Marty Mozzo gets a gorgeous show each night when the sun sets over wetlands near his property on the bay side of a barrier island.
For the first time in 20 months we may experience a cooler than average month in the Twin Cities. May has been cool, gray and wet. Let's hope the pattern warms up and dries out a little in June, although I'm not holding my breath. Today will be foul, but skies clear Wednesday with a shot at 70F. We may top 80F Friday before a swarm of T-storms arrive, a cooling wind may kick in again next weekend. I know - I'm just as annoyed as everyone else.
A South Carolina home used by Leeza Gibbons' foundation to help people taking care of loved ones with Alzheimer's Disease and other chronic illnesses has been damaged by a severe storm.
Sunday wasn't a total loss, in fact much of the day was just fine over central and southern Minnesota with plentiful sunshine and temperatures close to average. Instability showers and T-storms quickly sprouted, putting a damper on outdoor activities by late afternoon and evening. Expect more clouds and numerous showers again today - if it's any consolation it's too cool for anything severe out there. We warm up by late week but I see a persistent cool bias into at least the first week of June, maybe longer.
We salvaged a half-decent Saturday; nicer weather north of the cities, but at least it was lukewarm. A northwest wind kicks in today and Memorial Day as cooler air drains south out of Canada. It's even colder aloft, and heating of the ground will spark showers, mainly PM hours, the next couple of days. Not a total loss, but a few showers and sprinkles are likely. Summer could make an appearance by next weekend; details in the blog.
