[anvplayer video=”5144135″ station=”998130″]

Stubborn cloud cover overnight has kept temps in low to upper 30s this morning. These clouds may produce a few flurries near and north of the Iron Range until mid-morning. Clouds erode going into the afternoon, but temps stay cooler with highs in low to mid-40s across the Northland.

Clouds build back into the region overnight with lows in mid-20s to mid-30s. After a cool start to our Thursday, a warming trend begins thanks to a south wind. Highs rebound into low to mid-50s under mostly cloudy skies. A few showers will try to extend across northern Minnesota from the west in the afternoon and evening.

This minimal rain chance is the only opportunity for precipitation expected through the start of next week. This period is accompanied by highs consistently around ten degrees above average from Friday to Tuesday. It will be a quiet and comfortable stretch for Halloween festivities.
