StormTeam Outlook: Friday, August 1

Déjà vu

It has been a pretty boring week in the weather department. Mainly because we've been in this same pattern since Monday: patchy morning fog followed by sunshine and warm temperatures, a few afternoon showers and isolated storms, clearing by evening. The challenge has been determining where these showers will pop.

Today, this area stretches across our southern zones from Aitkin to Phillips including much of our WI viewing area. The greatest threat with these storms include small hail and perhaps some gusty winds. They'll likely occur during the peak daytime heating hours, between 2 and 6, and dissipate by this evening.

There will be a light lake breeze today, so temperatures near Lake Superior will be noticeably cooler than areas inland. Expect temps near 80 on the hill versus low 70s or cooler right down by the water.

As for the weekend, Saturday is looking nice with sunshine and temps near 80 for most. Showers and storms move in Saturday night, and may re-fire heading into Sunday afternoon.

Have a great weekend!
