Rip currents may pose problem Tuesday night but Wednesday should be calmer


The fetch of the wind over Lake Superior is right Tuesday night to create rip currents along the beaches of Minnesota and Wisconsin Points.  An alert for that is in effect until 10 pm.  On the big picture, a low pressure system is moving out of the area but scattered showers still have a 30% of popping up around the region.  Low temps will be 48-53.  The wind will be NE 5-15 mph.


Higher pressure will settle in for Wednesday to make for a sunny sky.  That will bump temps up a bit which in turn could create a 20% chance for sun showers.  High temps will be 69-74.  The wind will be SW 5-10 in MN and NE 5-10 in WI & MI.


The day will start with a partly cloudy to mostly sunny sky but clouds will increase in the afternoon as a new low pressure moves in from the west. Chances of scattered showers and thunderstorms move into the area Thursday afternoon and evening, with chances around 30% Thursday night. The wind will become W/SW to bring in warm and humid air.  That will mean a low temp of 53 and a high back up to 75 around here.


The low delivers a 50% chance for rain on Friday with low 58 and high 78.  Saturday will be filled with a 60% chance for rain with low 58 and high 77.  Sunday should be sunny with low 55 and high 78.  High temps may crack 80 by Monday.
