FRIDAY NIGHT & SATURDAY MORNING:
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.
SATURDAY & SUNDAY:
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 & BEYOND:
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.
