Heat, humidity and storms may rule this weekend

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00
7-23 Dewpoint

THURSDAY NIGHT:  Clouds will begin to increase throughout the night as the warm front of our latest low pressure system arrives. Low temps will run 55-60. The wind will be E 5-10 mph.

FRIDAY:  Humidity levels will become much higher as the low gets closer. Clouds will continue to thicken. A 30% storm chance will come out of the clouds in the afternoon and evening. There is a risk some could become severe. High temps will be 80-85 inland with 70's by the shore of Lake Superior. The wind will be S 5-15 mph.

SATURDAY:  The morning hours may get a respite from the rain chance but it will return in the afternoon. The odds for afternoon and evening thunderstorms stands at 70%. Some could again become severe. Morning low will be 65-70. Daytime high will run 85-90. The dewpoint will be near 70 so it will probably be uncomfortably humid. The wind will be SSW 5-15 mph.

SUNDAY:  Scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue for at least the first half of Sunday as the low pressure system departs our region. Once the cold front moves through in the late afternoon, the sky will begin to clear and dewpoints will drop and so will humidity levels. The wind will be NW 5-15 mph. Morning low will be near 60 and the afternoon high may once again run 85-90.

NEXT WEEK:  High pressure will take over on Monday and bring a clear to partly cloudy sky that may last much of the week ahead. Most days will have a range of temps go 75-80 for highs and 55-60 for lows.
