WEATHER STORY: Last night's dual low pressure systems delivered a half to full inch of rain to many of our towns. Now, higher air pressure has taken over to calm things down for a while. Tuesday night should continue to clear and Wednesday should be mostly sunny. By Thursday, another pair of low pressure systems could form and bring back a 70% rain chance. The latest charts indicate this could be a soaker, too. A half to three quarters of an inch of rain is possible. Temperature trends this week include a lot of near normal days but there will be one day ahead with a pretty big warm up. The normal is near 69 but we may run 70-75 most days and Sunday could hit 80.
TUESDAY NIGHT: The sky will become partly cloudy as a cell of high air pressure takes over our region. The low temperatures will range from 39 near Hibbing to 52 by Lake Superior. The wind will be W 5-10 mph.
WEDNESDAY: The day will be mostly sunny as the high pressure system sticks around for one more day. The high temperature range will be 66 by the lake to 74 inland. The wind will be WSW 5-15 mph.
THURSDAY: Two more lows from the west will arrive to make a cloudy sky with a 70% chance for showers and thunderstorms. Rain totals may run .5 to 1 inch. The low temperature will be near 55. The high temperature will top out around 73. The wind will be S 10-20 mph.
COMING UP: Sunshine will return as soon as Friday. It will slip away again as quickly as Saturday. Saturday's shower chance is 30%. Sunday should be sunny and warm with a high of 80. Next Monday and Tuesday, another round of rain will come to town. High temps this week will go about 70-75. Exceptions will be 80 on Sunday and 68 on Friday. The lows will be 47-57.
