FRIDAY NIGHT & SATURDAY MORNING: Despite Friday morning rain, the fire danger remains high in MN and the U.P. Rain remains the solution but high pressure will settle in to clear our sky overnight and into early Saturday morning. That will keep rain at bay and the fire risk going high until a better chance for precip comes by Sunday. Low temps Friday night should go 40-45. The wind will go NW 5-15 mph.
SATURDAY: The high in place will make Saturday clear to partly cloudy. The warm spell of the previous week will be over as high temps fall to a range of 65-70. The wind will be ENE 5-15 mph. That will make the weekend cold snap even colder right by Lake Superior and drop temps into the 50's.
SATURDAY NIGHT: A strong upper-level wave of lower air pressure and its associated warm front will push into the area to cloud the sky back up and start to drop showers and thunderstorms after 10 pm. Low temps into Sunday morning will run 45-50.
SUNDAY: Showers and thunderstorms will be likely during the morning, but things should slack off in the afternoon. However, a second round of showers and thunderstorms could be possible Sunday night as well. Some strong to severe thunderstorms are possible, so that's something the CBS 3 Weather Team will be watching closely. A marginal, level one risk is in place for most of the area with a slight, level two risk northwest of Brainerd and Crane Lake. Sunday's wind will be E 10-20 mph. The easterly wind will keep the cool down around for one more day so look for highs from 65-70 again.
MONDAY: Monday will be warm and also humid this time. The sky will be partly sunny with a 30% chance for showers and thunderstorms. High temps will run 80-85 with dewpoint near 60. The wind will be S 10-20 mph.
TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY: A soaking rain could come during these two days as a cold front collides with tropical moisture pushed our way by tropical storm Cristobal. The highs will be in the 70s and 80s Tuesday, but will dip back to the 60s and 70s as early as Wednesday.
