SCATTERED SHOWERS AND STORMS CONTINUE WITH SEASONAL TEMPERATURES
A slow-moving low pressures system has allowed multiple rounds of showers and thunderstorms to form across the Northland since Monday. Some have been little rain, while others have gotten enough to erase any deficit they had for total rainfall for the month. A few spots have even had to deal with flash flooding. Wednesday has been more of the same with scattered showers and thunderstorms, with a few having a gusty wind and small hail.
The low pressure system just to our north is finally starting to fizzle out, so expect rain and storm chances to end during the overnight hours Wednesday. There will still be plenty of moisture in the air, so expect lows in the upper 50s and low 60s and some patchy fog to form. Thursday morning should be dry, but by the afternoon a new low pressure system from the west will impact the Northland. One should expect more of the same with scattered showers and thunderstorms. Thanks to a dry start to the day, nearly everyone should get into the 70s for highs.
This new low pressure system will slowly pass through the western Great Lakes, so expect widespread rain chances to continue Friday and parts of Saturday. Temperatures will also be impacted by the rain and clouds, keeping them in the upper 60s and low 70s for highs. Once this low pressure system moves out by Sunday, everyone can enjoy a few dry days with lower humidity and highs back into the upper 70s and low 80s. Isolated rain chances come back by the middle of next week.
