Brandon Weatherz: Freezing nights ahead
The week ahead is cool and quiet with the main weather story being overnight temperatures. Freezing conditions in parts of the Northland both tonight and tomorrow night. Our Monday is cool and breezy with a northwest wind around 15 mph and highs in low to upper 50s. A few light rain showers are possible, particularly near the tip of the Arrowhead and east of the Bayfield Peninsula. Skies will be a mix of clouds and sun with cloud cover breaking up from the west.
A north wind will be responsible for lake effect rain showers for Iron and Gogebic Counties overnight. Clouds linger here, while skies clearing from the north will allow temps to fall into upper 20s and low 30s across northeast Minnesota. These communities will want to prepare for a freeze. The Twin Ports and the rest of the Northland will want to prepare for frost as temps fall to mid-30s.
Tuesday will be cool and sunny with highs ranging from mid-50s to mid-40s looking west to east. Tuesday night will be the first widespread freeze of the season. Temps will fall into the mid-20s to mid-30s with Lake Superior’s shorelines being the only areas that may stay above freezing. Temps gradually trend warmer through the rest of the week with highs in the mid and upper 60s by Friday.
