Warmer Coming

Tired of the cool/damp weather?  I doubt I could find anyone that would answer that question with anything but a resounding yes.  Good news that is likely what is going to happen.  There will be a storm system this weekend but it appears it will stay well south of North Dakota meaning that dry weather will continue until perhaps next weekend.  A dip in the jetstream is expected to develop to our west beginning this weekend, leading to a ridge of high pressure aloft which will bring mild and dry conditions to the upper Midwest.   Maximums are expected to be in the 60s and 70s, with maybe a couple of days in the 80s in the traditional warmer locations.  Although some days will be windy, it should be a great stretch to try to catch up on spring planting.
