Sunny, mild Thursday could yield to hot & wild weekend

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00
7-22 Wed. Surface

WEDNESDAY NIGHT:  The sky will become mostly clear to partly cloudy as a high takes over from the soaking low of Tuesday. Low temps will be 45-50. The wind will be calm so surface fog will be possible by sunrise.

THURSDAY: After the morning fog, the sky will become mostly sunny as the high holds sway for one more day. The wind will be SE 5-10 mph. High temps will be 73-78 inland with 60's more likely by Lake Superior.

FRIDAY:  Our next low pressure system will draw up warm and humid air into our region. The sky will become mostly cloudy and a 30% chance of thunderstorms will come back. There is a risk for severe storms. Morning low will be 60-65. Afternoon high will be 80-85. The wind will be S 5-15 mph.

SATURDAY:  The morning should be calm but the thunderstorm chance will return in the afternoon and evening. There's a chance of strong to severe thunderstorms once again. Morning low temp will be 65-70. The high temps will be 85-90. Dewpoints will be 65-70, too, indicating a humid day with plenty of moisture for precip. The wind will be SSW 5-15 mph.

SUNDAY:  A cold front will pass through the area Sunday to clear out the clouds and the rain chances. First, though, the frontal action may kick up one last round of showers and storms before the clear sky arrives. And, it will still be warm and humid despite the "cold" front with highs 85-90 again. However, it may feel more pleasant because the dewpoints will gradually decrease in the afternoon. Morning low will be 58-63.

NEXT WEEK: Most of next week looks quiet and mild with lower humidity levels. The sky for the most part will be mostly sunny to partly cloudy with very minor chances of a stray shower or thunderstorm. Highs will be in the mid 70s to low to mid 80s. Lows will fall to the 50s and 60s.
