.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Sunday night)
Issued at 258 PM CST Sat Nov 28 2020

No hazardous weather over the next 7 days. A cold front will move
through tonight and bring strong northwest winds. Forecast soundings
continue to indicate gusts near 40 mph, so have increased the winds
above the blended guidance. In addition, low stratus will develop and
so did put a chance for some flurries mainly north of I-94 where
there is deeper saturation.

Other than that, winds will decrease Sunday night and expect sunny
skies with light winds and seasonable temperatures on Monday.

.LONG TERM...(Monday through Saturday)
Issued at 258 PM CST Sat Nov 28 2020

No significant changes from the previous forecast. The stretch of dry
weather will continue through the week. A deep trough will persist
across the eastern CONUS, and that will allow cooler air to filter in
from the north. This will keep temperatures near or slightly below
the seasonal average for early December with highs in the mid 30s
and lows near 20. No significant precipitation is expected over the
next several days.
