[anvplayer video=”5132010″ station=”998130″]

We’re entering a quiet stretch of weather with generally clear skies. This begins with abundant sunshine for our Tuesday. Highs range from low to upper 70s. It’s another breezy day with a west northwest wind near 15 mph. This allows the temperature downtown and in Superior to be a few degrees warmer than on the hill in Duluth.

Skies are clear tonight with lows in mid to upper 50s. Warmer air begins to move into the region from the southwest tomorrow with highs ranging from low 80s to mid-70s. Widespread 80s arrive by Thursday as sunny skies remain. Friday brings the chance for a few showers and thunderstorms as a cold front sweeps the region. That front knocks highs mostly into the 60s by Saturday, but high pressure is responsible for another quiet stretch. We gradually trend warmer with plenty of sunshine through Labor Day weekend.
