Wednesday, August 31
Skies will be mostly clear tonight. There is a chance of some patchy fog in the early morning hours. Low temps are near 50 in Duluth, Aitkin, Hayward, Ashland and Ironwood. Expect low 40s around the Iron Range and International Falls.
A high pressure system to our north will funnel in east winds as air travels clockwise around the high. Winds are around 5-15mph. This will cool us off into the mid 60s in Duluth and low 70s around the Iron Range. Ashland and Hayward are also near 70. Expect partly cloudy skies as well.
Friday the high pressure moves east which puts us under a southern flow that warms us into the low 70s. Expect mostly sunny skies. Saturday a low approaches from the west and increases the pressure gradient increasing wind speeds out of the south. Expect a breezy and milder day with mid to upper 70s possible.
The low makes its way here Sunday afternoon and evening. Timing on the rain has been delayed to the afternoon/evening. Chances are around 50% for Sunday. Expect clouds to increase throughout the day. The low moves through Sunday night and into Labor Day. Lows are around 60 and highs are up to 72 on Monday. Chance of rain and some storms is around 60%.
The rest of the week can be labeled as “active” as a large trough in the jet stream over to our west puts us under a pattern of uplift in the atmosphere. This means good chances of rain Tuesday and Wednesday as well.
Have a great day!Adam Clark
