Rain will likely try to continue to spread eastward throughout the day and we may see some light rain. The biggest impact will come later Tuesday night when the cold front catches up to a soupy environment. Dew points are likely going to be in the 70s on Tuesday ahead of the cold front. This will provide the ammunition to spark off some strong to severe storms Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. Large hail and damaging winds will once again be the biggest threat. FORECAST Tuesday: Scattered showers. 74/58 Wednesday: A.M. storms. 80/62
It's a foggy start to the day but the sunshine will return by later this morning. The combination of ample sunshine and light southerly winds will usher the temperatures well into the 70s this by this afternoon. The nice and quiet conditions across the Northland will continue tonight as temperatures fall into the mid 50s to low 60s.
Winds off the lake Sunday certainly made for a cooler day. It's a good thing we had plenty of sunshine to offset any crankiness the cooler air may have had on some. Winds will switch to the south Monday and usher in more moisture and heat. By noon, the humidity will again climb, and some discomfort may creep in. A weak piece of energy bring scattered thunderstorms. The heaviest rain looks to stay on the Iron Range and along the Canadian border. FORECAST Monday: Becoming humid. 81/48 Tuesday: Isolated thunderstorms. 83/63 Wednesday: Scattered showers. 80/60
The last couple of days have reminded many of us how quickly the weather can change in the Northland. We continue to see wetter than normal conditions. We are 3.5 inches of water over our yearly average. You may have noticed that Lake Superior is higher. The big lake is just inches shy of breaking the all-time record for the July. We currently sit at about 603 feet above sea level. Rain will come to end this weekend as temperatures return to the 80s. There is a small chance of storms Saturday morning. FORECAST Friday: Feeling much warmer. 79/50
Winds will continue to be blustery and there is always a chance of seeing some decent morning fog. Skies will begin to clear out by later Thursday afternoon.

It's hard to imagine that only last week we had highs in the upper 50s and lower 60s. Since Saturday, every day has been at or above average. The last two days have brought in mid to upper 80s and stifling humidity. Friday temperatures cool down to get a little closer to normal. Most of the Northland will wake up to some fog and then see plenty of sunshine. An area of high pressure is set to stroll in for the weekend. It will once again be a 'get out and play' type of weekend. FORECAST Friday: Morning fog and sun. 76/58
A cold front swinging through overnight and into Thursday increases the chance for stronger storms shifting to the east, this includes all of the North Shore, all of Wisconsin and Michigan. Stronger winds and larger hail are possible in these areas especially by noon. Heat and humidity will continue to fuel the flames. There is a chance of rain lingering into Friday morning but it looks like the first half of the weekend looks good. More rain is possible Sunday. FORECAST Thursday: Scattered morning storms. 82/63 Friday: Plenty of sunshine. 75/58
The Fourth of July is one of those holidays that has the outdoors written all over it. Fortunately, Mother Nature is allowing us to enjoy outdoor festivities without any fear of the weather.

But clearing skies on Friday will then lead to a beautiful and warm upcoming weekend. FORECAST Tuesday: Plenty of sunshine. 77/55 Wednesday: Isolated storms. 83/60 Thursday: Scattered storms. 79/62
As many Northlanders prepare for Independence Day festivities, it appears the weather will be cooperating. Today and Independence Day are both looking very warm with plenty of sunshine. Highs will be in the mid to upper 70s today and upper 70s to low 80s on the 4th of July. As the extended weekend comes to an end, the threat for showers and storms will return. A pair of disturbances will create scattered thunderstorms Wednesday and Thursday, but we'll dry out by the end of the shortened workweek.
Thursday looks to be a decent day with some sunshine by the afternoon hours. Some stronger storms are possible to our south by Friday. As we roll into the weekend several pieces of energy will continue to impact our area. This will provide cooler weather and chances of rain through at least Saturday. By Sunday drier air slides in and so does the sunshine. Temperatures will return into the mid-70s to upper 70s Sunday and Monday. The Fourth of July looks nice and warm. FORECAST Thursday: Some sun possible. 70/53 Friday: Scattered storms. 66/53
