SUNSHINE STICKING AROUND INTO THE WEEKEND
Only "abnormally dry" conditions encompass Cook County along with far western portions of Itasca and Koochiching counties. There are now countless spots in northern and eastern Minnesota as well as northwestern Wisconsin that are above normal when it comes to year-to-date precipitation.
Looking forward to more bright and fairly pleasant afternoons? Look no further than Friday and the weekend! High temperatures will make it well into the lower to middle 50s Friday, Saturday and Sunday as a light north breeze will also be upon us. Plan on a little cooler air pooled along lakeside locations for the weekend however. Generally, expect surface high pressure to dominate our picture through most of the weekend. This quiet picture will not be here forever so make sure you soak it in while you can!
A storm system will clip us from the north for Sunday evening, stretching into the day Monday and potentially Tuesday of next week. Along with a light mix of snow and rain will also come a strong north breeze and much cooler air! A brief taste of winter is certainly set to appear as we head into late April. Accumulation with any kind of rain and snow will be very minimal as only a few tenths to a quarter of an inch of precipitation is possible.
Daily average afternoon temperatures are currently scattered about either side of 50° for Northland cities at the moment. If you were hoping for prolonged spring sun and warmth, then you may have to wait a little bit! The Climate Prediction Center has us keyed in on a 40% chance of below normal temperatures as we near the end of April. Remember, it can even still snow in May! Be sure to get out and enjoy this weekend's weather!
