ABUNDANT SUNSHINE TODAY, FOLLOWED BY DARK SKIES AND HEAVY RAINFALL TOMORROW.
Today we reached our average high temperatures finally, as the sun and southerly winds warmed us up nicely! We reached into the low to mid 70’s with a dry an comfortable airmass in place. As we continue through the night, the clouds will be on the increase from west to east. Low temperatures will drop into the low to mid 50’s under calm conditions. There is a slight chance of a light shower along the Borderlands.
Early tomorrow morning around 5-7am we will see showers and storms approaching our western area, mainly International Falls. As a low pressure continues to slide through the Northland on an eastward progression, it will continue to soak us tomorrow with widespread rain and on and off storms. We will be sitting in a moist and humid airmass, so it will be muggy. This also brings the potential for some heavy rainfall as well, where some areas could see ½ inch to over an inch of rain accumulate. There could be locally heavier rainfall amounts under some storms, which could lead to some flash flooding. So be sure to grab the rain boots, rain coat and umbrella as you head out tomorrow, you will definitely need it. High temperatures be significantly cooler too, with highs only in the upper 50’s to mid 60’s.
We finally dry out on Thursday as the sun returns and so does the warmth, back into the mid and upper 70’s!
A few more chances for showers and storms remain through the weekend, but the 4th of July forecast is looking sunny, warm and amazing!
