StormTeam Outlook: Monday, July 28
Benjamin Dery, Meteorologist
We call it an "Omega" block because the shape of the upper level winds look like the Greek symbol omega. It's a pattern that tends to provide the Northland with quiet weather, and that's exactly what we're getting this week. It doesn't mean we'll be rain free, but day to day conditions will be quite similar with very little threat for severe weather.
A few late afternoon showers are possible in the Arrowhead today. These may drift across Lake Superior into NW Wisconsin later this evening. We have a better chance for showers Tuesday, although less than 0.25" is expected, and most of this falls across the eastern 1/2 of the region.
Temps this week start out in the low to mid 70s rebounding to near 80 by the upcoming weekend. No big temperature swings, no big thunderstorms, mainly quiet weather.
Have a great day!
