Justin Liles' Weather Forecast

StormTeam Outlook: Thursday August 21st, 2014
Justin Liles, Chief Meteorologist

More rain and thunderstorms are possible during the overnight hours.  Winds will continue to be off the Lake through the weekend until a front passes.   Until then look for scattered showers, fog, cloudy conditions and increasing winds on Saturday.  This may cause problems for all the outdoor events going on this weekend like the Dragon Boat Festival, the Duluth Airshow and Tribute Fest in Bayfront Park.

Rain will likely continue in these areas through Friday morning and the chance for a few showers to advance far enough Northward to impact Duluth and North Shore are possible.  The Iron Range and International border looks to stay dry at the moment.   Another low takes aim on the Northland Saturday afternoon into the evening.  More scattered storms are possible.  At the moment Sunday looks to be the best day of the weekend.
