Brandon Weatherz: Warm and quiet through Halloween
Our Friday begins with much miler conditions compared to yesterday morning’s frost. The average high in Duluth is 47, which was our temp at 5 am! This warm up is in part because of thicker cloud cover overnight. Those clouds erode from the northwest this morning with plenty of sunshine on tap today. The other cause is a breezy southwest wind that’s bringing a return of above average temperatures to the Northland. This wind will be gusting around 25 mph today.
The weather pattern we’re in is going to keep the quiet and mild conditions with us each day through the middle of next week. That means a lot of sunshine and highs in 50s to 60s for all of your Halloween plans! The one downside to the dry forecast is that it’s been a dry October and we could use the moisture. Parts of the South Shore, including much of Douglas County and the Ashland Area, are currently in an extreme drought.
