Thunderstorm threat still looms for part of the region Friday night, goes away Saturday


Meteorologist-in-charge Michael Stewart of National Weather Service Duluth retired Friday after service here in the Northland tracing back to November 1998.  On his first night of freedom, there is a chance half of the region could get a thunderstorm.  A trough of low air pressure is working through NW Wisconsin and the U.P. so folks there have a 30% chance for precip.  MN may be off the hook.  Low temps will be 35-40 in MN and 40-45 in WI and MI.  The wind will be NE 5-10 mph.


Areas in green have the chance for isolated t-storms, the areas in dark green or yellow have a slight risk of strong to severe t-storms. Hail, damaging winds, heavy rain and lightning will be the main threats.


High air pressure cells return so lots of sunshine can be expected throughout the weekend.  Saturday should be mostly sunny during the day with a slight shower chance at night with a high from 65-70 inland and 60-65 by Lake Superior.  Saturday’s wind will be NE 5-10 mph.  Sunday will be sunny with low 39 and high 63.


Monday will be mostly sunny with low 42 and high 68.  Tuesday is our next thunder chance with a 60% shot at a little lightning with low 50 and high 73.  It becomes sunny and dry again by next Wednesday.
