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

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.

T-STORM THREAT:

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.
