Brandon Weatherz: Warm start to the week

[anvplayer video=”5130312″ station=”998130″]

We kick off the workweek with shorts and t-shirt weather. Temps rise near 80 across the Northland under a mix of sun and clouds. A broad area of high pressure keeps winds light and variable with little influence from Lake Superior on temperatures. We look along the international border in the late afternoon and evening for a chance of showers and thunderstorms. An area of low pressure and a stalled out front will keep thunderstorm chances along the Borderland tonight and into tomorrow. None of the storms are expected to be strong or severe.

Rain chances become more widespread Tuesday evening and night as the front slides south across the Northland. Wednesday will then be cloudy with scattered showers and a return of a cool lake breeze. A dry stretch is expected Thursday and Friday, then rain chances return with a more active weather pattern through the weekend.
