StormTeam Outlook: Tuesday, September 30
Benjamin Dery, Meteorologist
A cloudy, breezy start leads to slow clearing through the day. The added sunshine should get us out of the 40s, but temperatures remain below average again today. At least we'll be dry!
Showers return to the forecast late tonight as a low pressure system moves from the Dakota's to Manitoba. This will spread moisture into the Northland with a few rumbles of thunder possible. Showers continue into Wednesday with the best chance for heavier showers across our southern zones from Siren to Ironwood. Additional showers are possible Thursday.
The jetstream takes a big dip south Friday. This will allow much cooler air to spill into the upper Midwest. Temperatures may have a tough time getting out of the 40s Friday and Saturday along with gusty winds Friday.
Right now, Saturday still looks like the drier day of the weekend. Still, keep that Fall jacket handy over the next week or so.
