Brandon Weatherz: Cooling back to normal tomorrow
Unseasonable warmth continues for one last day, then temperatures get knocked back to average tomorrow. The cooler air arrives with a cold front that sweeps the region from the west through the day today. Scattered showers develop across northern Minnesota behind the front in the afternoon and evening. Rain marches east in the late evening and overnight with a rumble of thunder possible, particularly in northwest Wisconsin. There’s still a chance for lingering rain to turn to snow near the international border Friday morning.
We dry out west to east on Friday morning as the front exits the Northland, then another weather system arrives from the south and tracks toward the U.P. during the day Saturday. This will bring another chance for rain across northwest Wisconsin and along the eastern edge of Minnesota. Snow may enter the mix at times with this round, especially for the Arrowhead. Sunday brings a slight chance for additional showers to northern communities, then we remain dry until Tuesday into Wednesday. Rain should be dominant with that round.
