BRIGHT AND SHINY WITH A HINT OF FROST...

Tuesday was a pleasant but cool May day around the central Midwest. Highs barely touched 60 but that was a big improvement from where the day started. Many areas from HWY 30 north reported scattered light frost with lows in the 30s. Freeport in NW Illinois dipped to 30 with a number of other locations at 34.

In NW Iowa Estherville plummeted to 26 with Mason City down to 28. Silver Bay, Minnesota was one of the coldest at 19 degrees with widespread 20s in Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Wednesday morning promises even colder readings around my area with low to mid 30s expected to be common. Frost advisories will be in effect until 7:00 AM as far south as HWY 34.

Wednesday and Thursday promises more of the same with abundant sunshine, cold nights, and cool days with highs right around the 60 degree mark. That cutting north wind will be substantially lighter easing the wind chill and making for tolerable afternoons, even though highs will remain
