Brandon Weatherz: Hot and dry week ahead

[anvplayer video=”5181845″ station=”998130″]

A hot and dry weather pattern is what we’ll have for much of the week ahead. Our Monday begins with areas of showers moving south to north across northwest Wisconsin, trying to graze the Twin Ports, and reaching into the Arrowhead. This action gradually thins out through the morning, then isolated showers and a few thunderstorms may redevelop in northwest Wisconsin this afternoon. We then settle back into dry conditions into Thursday. A welcomed pattern shift will finally bring wetter conditions to the Northland late this week through the weekend.

Yesterday’s lake breeze is with us again today, keeping those immediately by Lake Superior in the mid-50s. Meanwhile, we’ll manage mid-70s on the hill in Duluth, and mid-70s to mid-80s fill out the rest of the region. We stay mild tonight with lows in 50s and 60s under clear skies. Lake influence will be more limited Tuesday through Thursday, allowing for a big spread in temps in the Twin Ports based on how close you are to the big lake. As a region, it’ll be hot each day with mid-80s to low 90s. Unseasonable warmth spills into the weekend, then temps regulate by Sunday.
