First day of Fall to bring sunshine, light winds and mild temperatures


The first day of Fall has is upon us, and it’s looking to be a beautiful day. High pressure down to our south will give us plenty of sunshine, but a few clouds may linger to our east in the morning as an upper-level wave passes through. Winds trend W around 5-15 mph. Highs climb into the mid 60s to mid 70s.


We’ll see clear skies and an overall pleasant night. Winds trend light out of the SW, so some patchy fog is possible in spots overnight. Lows fall back into the mid 40s to mid 50s, but some low 40s are possible in spots.


We’ll start the day with plenty of sunshine, but clouds increase west to east into the late morning and afternoon as our next system approaches. Areas W and NW of Duluth have a 30% chance of showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon. Areas in Wisconsin will see plenty of sun with increasing clouds after noon. Rain and thunderstorm chances increase to 50% for the entire Northland Tuesday night as a cold front passes through. Areas SE of a Duluth to McGregor line could see an isolated strong to severe storm Tuesday night. Winds trend SW around 5-15 mph, but turning W and NW overnight. Highs climb into the low to mid 70s, with some upper 70s possible. Lows fall back into the upper 40s to upper 50s.


Areas SE of a Duluth to McGregor line could see an isolated strong to severe storm or two Tuesday night, as these areas are under a marginal risk. The main threat would be hail, strong winds and heavy rainfall.


The cold front will continue to pass through, but with the low to the northeast, some lingering showers are possible throughout the day. We’ll see some clearing into Wednesday night as a quick moving high moves down to our south. Winds will be gusty out of the W and NW around 10-20 mph with gusts up to 30 mph. Highs will much cooler too, in the upper 50s to mid 60s. Lows fall back into the 40s, but some areas north could drop into the upper 30s.


We’ll see some sunshine Thursday, but clouds increase late Thursday afternoon into Thursday night as the next system will bring a chance of rain showers Thursday night into Friday morning. Skies clear Friday afternoon into Saturday, before another system brings more rain and a few storms Sunday night into early next week. Highs will remain near to slightly below average, in the mid to upper 50s to mid 60s. Lows fall back into the 30s and 40s, with the coolest temperatures confined to northern Minnesota.
