SUMMER WARMTH CONTINUES TODAY
It’s been a sunny and warm week so far and today should be no exception. There’s a storm system missing us to the south, and as it moves eastward, we’ll start to see a bit of a southeastern wind by afternoon. This will cool down the North Shore of Lake Superior just a little bit, but the south wind will allow most of us to – once again – reach above-normal high temps near 80°. The sun only gives way to a few additional clouds by afternoon, but overall today’s weather is expected to be nice and quiet with a steady warmup into the afternoon. Lakeshore temps will remain in the 60s and 70s today. The wind won’t be super gusty, just steady at 5-10mph through the afternoon.
Tonight, we’ll have partly cloudy skies and low temps in the mid-50s. Partly cloudy skies are likely tomorrow. Model guidance suggests a shortwave moving through tomorrow with slight shower chances. It won’t rain all day, but scattered showers are possible during the day tomorrow with warm highs in the mid and upper 70s. A high pressure from up in Canada will descend down from up north and clear things out for Sunday. This will lead to mostly quiet conditions with some clouds and a steady lake breeze. It’ll be a bit breezy Sunday, and paired with partly cloudy and mostly cloudy skies, shoreline temps and some areas of the Twin Ports will see highs the don’t get higher than just the upper 50s.
It’ll be sunny and seasonable on Monday next week. Long range guidance shows a Midwestern storm coming in from the Great Plains on Tuesday, swinging northward at some time during the day. This will bring rain and storms to a good portion on the Northland. Lingering showers are possible on Wednesday, but the warmth continues with highs in the mid and upper 70s. 80s are more widespread and likely on Wednesday next week.
