.DISCUSSION...A COLD FRONT WILL CONTINUE TO MOVE EASTWARD ACROSS
THE AREA TODAY. WINDS WERE LIGHT AND VARIABLE NOW...BUT THEY WILL
TAKE ON A SUSTAINED NORTH OR NORTH-NORTHWEST DIRECTION AS THE MORNING
WEARS ON. SOME VEILED SUNSHINE AT FIRST WILL GIVE WAY TO MOSTLY CLOUDY
SKIES AND PERHAPS SOME SPRINKLES OR A RAIN SHOWER. NOT LOOKING FOR MUCH
IN THE WAY OF RAINFALL AMOUNTS...GENERALLY A HUNDREDTH OR TWO OR
LESS IF IT ONLY TURNS OUT TO BE SPRINKLES. HUMIDITY LEVELS WILL BE
A BIT HIGHER HERE THAN THEY ARE WITH MY PRESCRIBED BURNS IN NORTH
CENTRAL MINNESOTA...AS IT WILL TAKE A BIT LONGER FOR SKIES TO
CLEAR FOR THE DOUGLAS COUNTY AREA. ALSO IT WILL TAKE A WHILE LONGER
FOR DRIER AIR TO MIX DOWN BEHIND THE FRONT. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS
I WOULD LOVE TO HELP.
