StormTeam Outlook: Saturday, August 19th
Monday's Forecast has Improved!
It's a beautiful start to the weekend with plenty of sunshine and temperatures in the 70s and 80s. However, a slow-moving frontal boundary will create scattered showers and storms during the overnight hours. The chances of rain will be linger into tomorrow, but they'll remain small. High temperatures will once again climb into the upper 70s to low 80s.
As many people look up to the sky to see the partial solar eclipse on Monday, there is more optimism for a good viewing partly than there was 24 hours ago, especially in the Twin Ports and to the south and east.
That aforementioned frontal boundary is no longer expected to stall over the Northland. In fact it should make its way down to southern Wisconsin opening the door for a week area of high pressure to slide across Northland late tomorrow night into early Monday. However, another piece of energy follows on its heals containing thicker clouds will scattered showers.
As of now, we're thinking the clouds will move into the northern Minnesota late Monday obstructing the sun during the height of the eclipse. Fortunately, the clouds will take their time crossing the state and may not reach Lake Superior until the height of the eclipse. And in northwestern Wisconsin, you may not see clouds until the entire event concludes.
Thanks for reading and enjoy the rest to your weekend!
