RAIN, A BRIEF STINT OF SUNSHINE FRIDAY, FOLLOWED BY MORE RAIN AND POSSIBLE STORMS OVER THE WEEKEND
Widespread rain is moving south to north through the Northland this morning and we can expect the showers to continue through the day into tonight. NW Wisconsin will see the most rainfall at 0.75”-1.00” with amounts tapering off towards northern Minnesota with a few hundredths likely towards Koochiching County by the time tomorrow morning rolls around. The passing system will generate easterly winds around 15 mph with gusts up to 25 which will keep it cool today. Additionally, thick clouds and the rainfall will contribute to temperatures decreasing this afternoon after we see a peak temperature around 50° during the late morning hours.
Most of the rain will clear out tonight with a few lingering showers tomorrow morning. It will remain mostly cloudy until later in the afternoon when the sun will start to come out ahead of a sunny and warm Friday when we can expect highs to climb into the 70s. The break from the rain will be brief as Saturday marks the first of several days in a row when we will see chances of rain and thunderstorms through Memorial Day Weekend. Sunday currently has the best chance of storms developing, but Saturday, Monday, and even Tuesday can’t be ruled out for thunderstorm activities. We will continue to keep an eye on the holiday weekend as things become clearer in the coming days. In the meantime, it would be prudent to plan on the possibility of rain and even some storms interrupting any events you may have planned over the weekend.
