[anvplayer video=”5189390″ station=”998130″]

The workweek is going to kick off with temps on the cool side for lakeside communities and northern areas, but unseasonable heat remains to our south. We’ll see the heat gradually build back into the Northland from the south through Wednesday when a Heat Advisory will be in effect for Pine, Burnett, Washburn, Sawyer, and Price Co. A breezy east wind will limit temperatures for areas surrounding Lake Superior today through Wednesday. It will also be responsible for a high risk for rip currents through this period.

Our Monday begins with showers filling out far northern Minnesota. Rain will stay in these same areas and gradually thin out through the morning into the early afternoon. There’s a low chance for showers and thunderstorms this afternoon and evening, but a better chance arrives overnight. Storms will fill out east central Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin, reaching about as far north as the Iron Range.

Heavy rain and hail up to 1″ is possible. Showers and thunderstorms taper off Tuesday morning. After that, there isn’t much moisture on the horizon. There’s a chance for showers and thunderstorms Wednesday night and perhaps on Friday.
