Slowly Exiting Showers
A line of thunderstorms moved through the Northland Saturday evening bringing brief heavy rainfall and some gusty winds. Showers gradually fall apart overnight, drifting southeast through dawn Sunday.
Sunday starts out a bit breezy with a few morning showers, especially across our southeastern zones. Clearing takes place through midday as high pressure regains control of the Northland. This will allow winds to die down, and we're looking at a pleasant afternoon with highs a touch cooler than Saturday.
A ridge of warm air builds into the region early next week. We're looking at sunny skies, and quiet weather at least through Tuesday. Clouds increase Wednesday along with a few spotty showers, but it shouldn't be too significant. Temperatures should warm to near 70 each day.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
