THE HEAT RETURNS AND SO DOES WILDFIRE SMOKE THIS WEEKEND
Wildfire smoke has returned to the Northland this morning. And air quality warning is in effect for all northern Minnesota counties until 4pm on Saturday. The fine particle pollution is unhealthy for sensitive groups with lung disease, asthma, children and older adults. You should limit your time outdoors. Visibiites in the plume of smoke will also be reduced to 2-5 miles. The sunshine will also have a difficult time shining through. So a mix of smoke, clouds and sunshine today with temperatures rising to the low and mid 80's. Winds will be out of the east at 5-15mph. This has created a Red Flag Warning on Park Point and Wisconsin Point. High waves and strong rip currents are likely, so stay out of the water on Lake Superior today! Head to an inland lake to cool off! There is a chance for light scattered sprinkles this afternoon on the Arrowhead, that will come to an end by 8pm.
Mostly cloudy skies will cover the lakeside towns overnight, with temperatures falling into the low and mid 50's.
Saturday the morning will start off cloudy but lead way to sunny skies. Temperatures will rise to the upper 70's and low 80's.
Sunday the sunshine is plentiful in the morning but clouds will begin to roll in the by afternoon hours. Temperatures will rise to the low and mid 80's with muggy air in place. But a cold front approaches from the west and brings showers and storms for Sunday evening.
The rain and storms will continue to kick our work week off both on Monday and Tuesday. Then cooler temperatures surge in! High's will be in the upper 60's and low 70's!
Enjoy your weekend Northland!
