StormTeam Outlook: Tuesday, September 2:
Benjamin Dery, Meteorologist
A pleasant morning with a good deal of sunshine gives way to partly cloudy skies. A weak wave slides through northern Minnesota that could spark a few afternoon showers, perhaps a weak thunderstorm. Brief heavy showers would be the greatest threat across the Iron Range and International Border. Temperatures warm into the middle 70s with a southwest wind 5-15mph.
A warmer day is expected Wednesday as a warm front surges into the upper Midwest. Along this front, storms develop through central and eastern Minnesota during the afternoon, across our Wisconsin zones Wednesday evening. A few of these storms may become severe with large hail the main threat. Additional storms may develop early Thursday when a cold front moves through the Northland.
Much quieter, cooler weather is expected behind this front from Friday through the upcoming weekend.
Have a great day!
