Brandon Weatherz: Warmth begins the week, but doesn’t stick around
The week ahead begins warm with temps around 10 degrees above normal. These warmer conditions linger through Tuesday, then highs fall into 50s and 60s starting Wednesday and continue each day through the weekend.
There will be a few opportunities for rain in the coming days, but each is rather isolated in nature. The first is for northwestern communities late this afternoon and evening as a few showers and thunderstorms move across Koochiching County. Overnight thunderstorms may fire off in northwest Wisconsin as well as along the international border. That round tapers off and moves east early Tuesday morning. A low chance for showers and thunderstorms follows a front through the day Tuesday, beginning in north central Minnesota in the early afternoon and moving east across northwest Wisconsin in the evening.
Wednesday is cool and breezy with spotty sprinkles possible. High pressure keeps us clear and chill on Thursday, then the next widespread chance for rain arrives Friday afternoon and spills into Saturday.
