High pressure is moving through the Midwest and that is providing the Northland with a wonderful start to the new week. There is a lake breeze however because of an east and southeast wind based on the position of this high. That is keeping the lakeside areas cooler than inland locations. Highs today did rise into the mid and upper 70s away from the lake. Lakeside areas remained in the lower to mid-60s.

Skies will begin clear tonight as winds remain out of the east and southeast at 5 to 10 mph. overnight lows will be between the lower and upper 50s. Clouds will begin to advance into the area overnight as an approaching storm system moves in. There is a center of low pressure over Central Canada with a front extending south through the Dakota. By the morning, we have the possibility of showers and thunderstorms in the area. There is a risk that some of these storms may be strong or severe. A slight risk of severe weather covers all of Northwest Wisconsin, Gogebic County in the U.P. and Aitkin, Pine, Carlton, Southern St. Louis, and Southern Lake Counties in Northeast Minnesota.

Hail and damaging winds are possible with these thunderstorms. There is a greater risk of severe storms south of the Northland were clusters or bands of storms with damaging winds are possible. The severe storm threat should diminish by the late evening. High tremperatures tomorrow will be between 75 and 80 degrees expect the immediate lake where mid 60s to 70 degrees are expected.

After the front passes through, Winds will shift out of the northwest and skies will clear during the day on Wednesday. A stretch of sunshine will then persist through the weekend. There is a possibility of some thunderstorms either Saturday or Sunday as forecasts are showing a front passing through, but there remain differences in the amount of available moisture content.
