Cristobal arrives tonight. It brings the chance of heavy rain for areas east of Ashland and Hayward as the center moves over central Wisconsin. Around 2-4” is possible there with flash flooding being a concern. Chance of rain in that area is around 90%. Further to the west around Duluth and Grand Rapids expect a 60% chance of some showers and thunder. Morning lows are in the low to mid 50s with some upper 40s closer to the lake and also in International Falls.
Cristobal pushes just south of the Hudson Bay by Wednesday evening. This puts us under some strong northwest wind at 15-25mph. We will see gusts up to 40mph. There’s an 40% chance of rain by the afternoon for the region as colder air starts to push in and causes uplift. High temps are in the low 60s for places south of the Iron Range. Around the Range and points north expect low to mid 50s.
There will be a 20% chance of showers in the morning Thursday. Low temps are near 49. A ridge of high pressure builds in the jet stream and a high pressure system at the surface sits north of Lake Winnipeg. This will clear us up by the afternoon with mostly sunny skies expected. Highs are in the low 60s.
High pressure builds from the north Friday and we have sunny to mostly sunny skies and an east wind. Lows are in the mid 40s and highs in the low 60s. Lakeside locations will be in the low 50s for highs.
The sunshine continues Saturday as the large high and ridge push east a little. The sinking air keeps us dry. Morning lows are in the low 40s and highs reach the low 60s.
There’s mostly sunny skies Sunday with morning lows in the mid 40s and highs in the mid 60s. The high pressure system is in eastern Ontario now and will provide a light southern flow.
