[anvplayer video=”5133332″ station=”998130″]

Areas of fog have set up overnight, leading to locally poor visibility for the morning commute. Similar to yesterday, the early fog and clouds should lift by around 9 a.m. with the day shaping up to be mostly sunny overall. Kids heading back to school do so with temps in 40s and 50s this morning, then we warm into mid-70s to low 80s this afternoon. Lake Superior won’t have as strong of an influence on temperatures today because of a lighter wind out of the southeast.

Skies will be mostly clear overnight with temps falling back to mid-40s to mid-50s across the Northland. Patchy fog may once again develop and gradually lift after sunrise Wednesday. Sunshine and warmth continue tomorrow. Thursday will be the warmest day of the week with widespread highs in the 80s. A cold front passes Thursday night, bringing the next widespread chance for showers and thunderstorms. Rain chances begin near the international border Thursday evening and track south. Some storms may be strong with hail and gusty winds possible. Scattered showers linger Friday with highs dropping into the 60s. We should stay rather quiet and seasonable through the weekend.
