An area of low pressure moving through the Northland brought some showers and storms early this morning. Higher pressure will move in throughout the day, allowing skies to clear. Winds however, will be breezy out of the NW around 10-20 mph. Highs range from around 60 north to the mid 70s south.
Other than a few passing clouds, we are in for a clear and calm night. Winds trend light out of the N and NE. Lows range from around 30 north to around 40 south, so it will be noticeably cooler Friday morning.
We are in for a rather pleasant day for our Friday with a mix of clouds and sun, but clouds will increase to our south into the late afternoon. Winds trend E to NE around 5-15 mph. Highs will be in the upper 50s to mid 60s inland, but only in the 40s lakeside. Our next low pressure will start moving towards the area overnight, so areas south of Duluth could see some showers after midnight. Lows back in the mid 30s to mid 40s.
A low pressure with an associated stationary boundary will slowly track towards the Northland. The system will spread widespread rain showers to the Northland. A few t-storms are possible to our south as well. The system lingers into Sunday, finally gaining some speed and pushing east-northeast. Moderate to heavy rain is possible at times, especially south of Duluth. Areas north will see a lesser chance of rain throughout the weekend. Along with the rain, temps will be rather chilly with highs in the 40s to low 50s and also a gusty E wind takes over as well. The system should exit by the early afternoon hours Monday. We could see 1-2″ of rain through the weekend, with lesser totals north with isolated amounts over 2″ south possible.
RAIN CHANCES THROUGH THE WEEKEND:
- Northwest Wisconsin: At least 70% both days
- Twin Ports and East Central MN: 60%-80% both days
- Iron Range and Arrowhead: 30%-40% Saturday, 60% Sunday
- Borderland: Less than 20% Saturday, 30%-40% Sunday
We briefly dry out Monday afternoon into Tuesday morning before another system could swing into the area and bring another round of rain and isolated t-storms. Highs will rebound back into the 50s to low 60s.
