Rainy start to the week, flooding concerns for NW Wisconsin

TODAY:

As the low pressure system moves across Wisconsin, this brings an 80% chance for Duluth and NW Wisconsin to see moderate to heavy rain showers. Regions to the north will stay mostly dry and see some sunshine. High temperatures will be near 46 degrees, with breezy winds out of the NE at 15-20 mph. This will keep areas along the lake cooler.

Tonight, rain showers will taper off to the east. Clouds will also decrease to mostly clear skies. Low temperatures drop to near freezing.

TUESDAY:

High pressure will build in from the west, making for sunny skies. High temperatures will climb back into the upper 50s, with Duluth near 57 degrees. Winds will shift out of the south in the afternoon at 5-10 mph. Lows on Tuesday will be in the mid 30s.

WEDNESDAY:

The warming trend does continue into Wednesday, however, a shortwave will approach bringing in some clouds and a 40% chance at seeing some light rain. Highs will reach mid to low 60s, with Duluth nearing 63 degrees. Southerly winds will help us with the warmer air. Lows for Wednesday remain mild in the low 40s.

THURSDAY:

Expect mostly sunny skies for Thursday and a pleasant afternoon. Highs will be back in the low 60s, as lows for the night drop down into the upper 30s.

FRIDAY:

More high pressure settles in for Friday, allowing for mostly sunny skies to stick around. Due to the shortwave that passed through, temps will be just a little cooler. Highs will reach into the mid 50s, and lows in the upper 30s Friday night.

LOOKING AHEAD:

Another large low will take aim at the Northland for Saturday bringing the potential for heavy rainfall. This system will also cool us down a bit, as highs will only top out in the low 40s. We’ll continue tracking the system as it gets closer.
