Justin Liles: Temperatures to increase through the weekend
There is just not a whole lot to talk about regarding the weather. There might be some light rain later this afternoon. The coolest thing will be the Super Blue Moon tomorrow night. Skies will be clear enough to see this feature. The next full moon will rise on Wednesday, Aug. 30, and it will be one of the brightest and largest moons of 2023. The term “Blue Moon” has nothing to do with color, but since the 1940s has commonly referred to the second of two full moons that fall in a calendar month.
Temperatures will continue to climb through the rest of the week. Winds will pick up some to make for some breezy conditions. These winds will be out of the south increasing humidity through the weekend too. Believe it or not, Duluth hasn’t reached 90° this year. By this weekend we might hit it Saturday, Sunday, or Monday. Its going to feel more like a fourth of July holiday weekend rather than Labor Day.
