Friday, May 6
A few showers and rumbles of thunder are possible as the cold front marches south through the region in the evening hours. Storms and showers will die down throughout the night and skies will become mostly clear to clear. Winds are gusty out of the NW at 10-20 with gusts up to 30mph. Low temps are down into the mid 30s in International Falls and upper 30s for the Iron Range. Duluth will have upper 40s for lows and Hayward is in the low 40s tonight.
The jet stream is in a large trough pattern over our region. This gives us a 20 to 30% chance of a few sprinkles in the afternoon hours. High pressure will keep most of the activity limited to the Minnesota Arrowhead of Lake and Cook Counties. Otherwise expect a breezy wind out of the northwest at 5-15mph gusting up to 25mph. High temps are in the mid 60s in Duluth and also for the Iron Range. We have upper to mid 60s in Northern Wisconsin and low 60s in the Upper Peninsula.
The high moves overhead on Sunday giving us plenty of sunshine and highs in the mid 60s. Monday we have mostly sunny skies and highs are near 62 as a ridge in the jet stream continues to hold over the region. A low pressure system approaches from the south on Tuesday. This ups our chances of rain to 60% and cools us off a bit too. Lows are near 40 and highs are around 50. The low moves north and hangs out over the Northland on Wednesday continuing to bring a 60% chance of rain and cloudy skies. Temperatures are a little warmer Wednesday with lows in the low 40s and highs in the mid 50s.
Have a great weekend!
