StormTeam Outlook: Friday, October 24
Benjamin Dery, Meteorologist
Foggy Start, Mild Finish
A Dense Fog Advisory has been issued for the eastern 2/3 of the Northland. Fog developed overnight and could significantly reduce visibility within a short distance. Use caution and common sense when driving this morning. The fog burns off through the morning, and the Advisory expires at 10AM.
Otherwise, today should be pretty excellent with skies becoming partly cloudy and temperatures soaring well above average. Expect afternoon highs to reach well into the 60s, perhaps near 70 out by Brainerd!
It only last for a day as cooler air moves in for the weekend. However, Saturday and Sunday are still looking quite nice with temps only falling into the upper 50s. Tomorrow will be a bit windy with west winds 10-20mph. There will be frequent chances for rain showers heading into next week along with another drop in temperatures.
Have a great weekend!
