ISOLATED SHOWERS FOR SOME TUESDAY
Unfortunately for the Northland, the weather did no cooperate for us when the eclipse came through. We were not in the path of totality but about 81% of the moon covered sun creating a shadow over the area. With the cloud cover already in place, the moons shadow make an effect like it was about to rain as it got darker outside. It was at 1:07 Pm where the peak of the eclipse raced across the Northland. The shadow itself was traveling around 1600 mph by the time it passed the Northland.
The cloud cover over the area was also accompanied by showers and some thunderstorms as well. Temperatures were cooler than average of our high of 73.Mid and upper 60s were observed north of Highway 2 and lower to mid-70s were observed in Northwest Wisconsin. A few scattered showers and storms will develop later tonight as this frontal boundary passes through the area. Overnight low temperatures will be in the upper 40s and lower 50 with northwest winds around 10 mph.
Tomorrow will be a cool a cooler day, but also a sunnier one for most of us. There is some afternoon instability that will spark off a few showers in the Borderlands regions. Highs will be in the upper 60s along the Borderlands with lower 70s everywhere else. Winds will be breezier though around 10 to 20 mph. As we get into Wednesday, There are some discrepancies whether or now a wave of showers will pass through North Dakota and Minnesota. Right now I am staying optimistic that there will be no such showers but rather just some cloud cover. Highs will be only in the upper 60s.
The rest of the week remains cooler than average with highs in the mid and upper 60s. By the weekend, soggy weather moves in as a low pressure stalls out over the Midwest resulting in multiple rounds of showers across the area.
