StormTeam Outlook: Sunday, August 28th
Severe Storms Firing Up
Severe thunderstorms have developed along the Canadian Border. Multiple Severe Thunderstorm Warnings have been issued for parts of Koochiching and St. Louis Counties tonight, and we expect the chances for severe weather to linger through the overnight hours.
If thunderstorms impact your area, be sure to take shelter until these storms pass. Some thunderstorms will be capable of producing gusty winds, frequent lightning, and small hail, in addition to heavy downpours.
The threat for rain and thunder will spread across the rest of the Northland late tonight as temperatures fall into the low 60s.
A cold front sweeping through the Upper Midwest will finally clear us out by tomorrow night, but we have to deal with the potential for some more nasty weather first. Ahead of the cold front, winds out of the south and southwest will keep temperatures on the warmer side. Lows tonight will not make it out of the 60s, and highs tomorrow will soar into the 80s with high humidity. The warm and humid atmosphere will be the catalyst for some heavy thunderstorms.
A strong area of high pressure will bring gorgeous conditions to the Upper Midwest for the middle of the week. Clear skies will hang around the Northland from Tuesday through Thursday with high temperatures reaching into the mid 70s.
Thanks for reading, and enjoy the rest of the weekend!
