Brandon Weatherz: Summer heat returns

[anvplayer video=”5188756″ station=”998130″]

Our Tuesday begins chilly with most areas in the 40s, but we’ll quickly warm up with highs back in low to mid-80s for most today. It’ll also be muggier with dew points rising near 60. We’ll look by the Canadian border into the Arrowhead where a few showers are possible in the evening into tonight, but the rest of the Northland is dry with mostly sunny skies.

Wednesday will feature more heat and strong southwest winds before a cold front passes. We’ll look ahead of that front for potentially severe storms sweeping the Northland from northwest to southeast in the late afternoon and evening with large hail and damaging winds as the main hazards.

Behind that front, highs are briefly knocked down to the 70s on Thursday. Breezy northwest winds linger and it’s possible that wildfire smoke returning to the surface will affect air quality. 80s start to return on Friday, and by Saturday, 90s are possible in the warm areas. The weather pattern looks to keep temperatures above average and rain chances slim into next week.
