depfromavgOur long-awaited surge of warm air has moved into the region. While today was spent in th 60s, tomorrow we’ll enjoy the 70s, and we’ll break a few records Thursday. We’re right on the bullseye of the largest departure from normal in the entire country. All global models averaged together show a departure nearly 25° above the average (which is 52°). If you look on the high side of that, we could see some middle to high 80s! We’ll stick to 83° which is what we’ve had going since Sunday but a few places could be a little warmer.

Surges of warm air like this can be surprisers! For one, we don’t have any live vegetation on the surface which gives off water vapor day and night. With a dry atmosphere there is at least a slight chance we could obliterate records all across the Upper Midwest. In case you’re wondering, our record high on Thursday is 81° set in 2003. -ES

    Is 90 a remote possibility, or is that pushing it a little bit too much?
