A shortwave trough pushes over our area creating enough uplift to bring a 60% chance of showers and some thunder after midnight. Lows are near 50 with some upper 50s to the south. Winds are out of the southwest at 4-8mph.
We will have a breezy northwest flow at 10-15mph Friday. Skies are sunny to mostly sunny as the western half of a fast moving trough pushes east over the area. High temps are in the mid 70s in Duluth and low 70s to the north and upper 70s to the south around Hinckley.
A nice big ridge pushes over our region on Saturday. Morning lows are in the upper 40s and highs reach the mid 60s on the hill. We are cooler because of the east wind kicks in. Expect 50s for lakeside locations and low 70s away from the lake with mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies.
There’s a low pressure system that is approaching Sunday. It brings clouds and a 60% chance of rain and thunder. Right now, it looks to be wettest in the morning to early afternoon then it dries up a little by mid afternoon. The wind is still out of the east which means cooler temps. On the hill expect mid 60s and by the lake mid to upper 50s.
The large low pressure system moves into South Dakota. This brings a surge of warm air from the south, which trumps the lake so highs get into the 80s. The North Shore will be cooler with the southern flow coming off of Lake Superior. There’s a 20% chance of some showers and thunder.
Tuesday could be “interesting”. We could see some tropical moisture out of what should be Tropical Storm Cristobal. The storm makes landfall around Sunday night into Monday morning around the Louisiana/Texas border. Then a giant trough over the Rocky Mountain States scoops up the moisture, forms a low and brings the Northland a 70% chance of rain and thunder. Expect cloudy skies with lows in the low 60s and highs in the low 70s.
