We've certainly had our fair share of cloud cover this week, and Friday is no exception. Clouds continue to cover the sky today, with stead south winds and warmer temperatures by this afternoon. The winds will be SE to start, due south through midday, and then slightly SW later on; this windflow will help us warm up into the upper 50s and low 60s across the Northland today. For Duluth I'm going with a high of 60 degrees.
A center of low pressure is poised to swing a cold front through the area tonight. While a few showers could develop on Saturday from this weak system passing through, it will be enough to drop temperatures back down toward average - back in the upper 40s. Clouds will stay with us on Saturday, but diminish a bit by Sunday. Both of those days have the potential for seasonably cool temperatures.
Monday - the big Halloween holiday - looks a bit messy. Models have a pretty impressive low passing straight through the heart of Minnesota on Monday. This brings us our next chance for heavy rain and perhaps even some late fall thunderstorms. Temperatures will be in the 50s. We'll continue to see highs in the 50s next week, with lingering showers possible on Tuesday. Sunny skies look more likely by Wednesday and Thursday next week.
