The Northland is being drenched by the first of two weather systems that’ll bring us moderate to heavy rain and the possibility of flooding.

By late Wednesday afternoon, three-quarters of an inch of rain had already fallen in Duluth.

Rain will continue tonight and come to an end by daybreak Thursday.  Along with the rain, foggy conditions will reduce visibilities as lows drop into the low-40s.

While we’ll get a break from the rain for much of Thursday, mostly cloudy skies and highs in the 50s to near 60° will dominate our weather.

The next rain event arrives late Thursday night into Friday night.  Another round of moderate to heavy rain is possible.  A few strong thunderstorms could pop up Friday afternoon and evening.

This will increase the chances of seeing more flooding across Northwest Wisconsin.

Friday’s highs will be in the 50s with temperatures warming well into the 60s for this weekend.

Saturday and Sunday are still looking mostly dry with a chance now for scattered showers Memorial Day!

But, we still have a few days to fine tune the forecast for the holiday weekend!
