SUNSHINE AND WARM AIR TO OPEN THE WORK WEEK
Clouds will dissipate tonight as a light south wind will take over and thermometer readings will be on either side of 50°. Get ready for another sunshine-filled sky and a rapid warm up on Monday! Afternoon temperatures will get well into the upper 70s with lower 80s likely along northern and eastern Minnesota. Monday may be the second time this month that Duluth gets to 80°!
As high pressure develops over the Great Lakes, warmer air will continue to be cranked into the Upper Midwest from locations to our south. Therefore, the above normal temperatures will be in abundance for Tuesday afternoon as well. Due to a more easterly breeze, temperatures will range from the 60s for lakeside spots with inland cities cruising well into the 70s once again. Plan to get outdoors this week? I suggest getting that done before mid to late week rolls around! We are tracking the likelihood of rounds of showers and storms late Wednesday through Thursday and Friday.
Wednesday will start out on the dry side, but rainfall chances will increase as the afternoon and evening hours roll on. A storm system will inch its way into the Northland from the south and will be responsible for rainfall and some embedded thunderstorms. Temperatures should easily reach the middle to upper 60s but you will definitely need to keep the umbrella handy! The moisture will linger into the daytime hours Thursday the storm system lingers. The severe weather threat is very low but heavy rainfall will be possible at times! Expect most locations to pick up at least 0.25-0.75" of rainfall to end the week.
Again, storm chances will linger into the upcoming weekend as well. Some of our forecast models are trying to hint at over an inch to an inch and a half of rainfall into the weekend! Daytime temperatures will remain steady in the 70s, ranging from 5-15° above normal for the Northland. We will keep you posted on the evolution of the developing systems to close the week and head into the weekend. Overall, plan on an at times wet end to the current 7-Day Forecast!
