A cool and breezy day lies ahead, especially for areas near Lake Superior as a gusty east wind develops. Highs stay in low 60s along the shorelines. Highs inland range from mid-60s to mid-70s from northeast to southwest across the Northland. Skies will be partly cloudy. We stay dry today, then a wet stretch of weather begins tonight and takes us through the weekend.

A slow moving system with a lot of moisture to tap into will bring the ingredients for excessive rainfall. The best chance for high rain totals and flash flooding from early Thursday morning through Thursday night will be across and north of the Iron Range. Areas that receive locally high amounts will be the focus areas for additional flooding concerns Friday and this weekend as additional rain, possibly heavy, will remain possible.

The wet conditions should remain mostly north of the Twin Ports through Thursday, then Thursday night through Friday night will feature more widespread showers filling out more of northwest Wisconsin.
