Justin Liles' Weather Forecast

StormTeam Outlook: Friday September 12th, 2014
Justin Liles, Chief Meteorologist

A cooler air mass is going to be with us throughout much of the weekend.  There is the threat for some evening rain because of the cooler temperatures in the mid levels of the atmosphere.  Skies should begin to clear out in time Friday night to see a spectacular northern lights show.  The best time will be after midnight and away from the city.

Friday night look to be the best chance at seeing this amazing display of auroras.  As soon as the clouds clear out there will once again be the threat of frost to develop around the Northland tonight.  Temperatures are expected to again drop into the upper 20s to lower 30s.

Saturday and Sunday will see a little more sunshine and temperatures will rebound quickly into the upper 50s to lower 60s.   There is a small chance of light rain Saturday night into Sunday north of the Twin Ports.  Warmer weather moves in next week with temperatures returning to the 60s.
