Warmer and drier-than-normal weather conditions will likely stick around for most of September, but a shot at showers is expected this weekend.

“I think overall if you take September as a whole, we’ll see above-normal temperatures and below-normal precipitation, but that doesn’t mean we won’t have some kinks in that pattern going forward,” DTN Ag Meteorologist John Baranick said during a Tuesday visit with RFD Radio.

There were some showers impacting the southern portion of the state over the weekend.

“And a little bit of that was heavy, too,” he said.

Dry weather is expected through midweek, but a cold front is moving through the weekend into early next week.

“It’s going to be kind of a slow mover and it’s going to drop a bunch of moisture from the Gulf of Mexico,” Baranick said. “I think we’ll get several days of showers this weekend into early next week.”

That system will bring some cooler temps as well, but then dry and warm conditions will return.

“I think that’s kind of what we’ll see, these periods where we'll get a system moving through,” Baranick said. “We’ll get some decent rainfall for a few folks and dry elsewhere and overall warmer temperatures kind of beset by some cooler shots moving through every couple of days.”

He said that type of pattern could be in play for much of meteorological fall, which runs through November.
