SHOWERS AND T-STORMS RETURN SATURDAY, SCATTERED CHANCES OVER HOLIDAY WEEKEND
I hope you got the chance to soak in some of the sunshine this Friday as temperatures warmed up into the 70s for many of us. Light winds and a few clouds weren’t enough to spoil the day. If only the rest of the Memorial Day weekend could be as ideal as this day was…
A quick moving low pressure system will be moving through the Northland Saturday morning. While it will be dry Friday night, clouds will be on the increase and keep lows somewhat warm for this time of the year in the low 50s. Saturday’s rain and storms could have a few stronger cells with gusty winds and hail. The afternoon is looking to be drier, but a few scattered storms are possible with a breeze coming off the lake from the east. Temperatures will be impacted by all this, staying cool in the 50s by Lake Superior, and the 60s inland.
The rest of the Memorial Day weekend will see several more rounds of showers and thunderstorms move through the western Great Lakes. The best chances will be Sunday afternoon and evening, Monday afternoon, and Tuesday afternoon. No one day will be a washout, but be prepared to take shelter as some of the storms could be strong to severe. The best chances for this will be south and west of the Twin Ports region, but everyone could see at least one chance over the next several days.
Temperatures will warm into the 60s for everyone Sunday, and into the 70s and 80s Monday. Tuesday brings cooler temperatures to the region with highs in the 60s as the work week resumes following the holiday.
