Justin Liles: Rain tonight, getting colder rest of week
Today will likely be the last day of summer-like temps across the Northland. Southerly winds all day will likely bring in enough moisture to create thunderstorm activity in our western and northern viewing area. Wind gusts late this afternoon will be strongest in north-central Minnesota, where gusts up to 40 mph will be possible. Showers and thunderstorms enter late this afternoon into tonight as a cold front sweep through the area.
Heavy rain will be possible in north-central Minnesota, with amounts up to 1.25″. However, flooding concerns are minimal. The heaviest rain showers will likely be the Brainerd, Grand Rapids, and International Fall area. Cooler temps are expected for mid to late this week with shower chances lingering. Widespread frost is likely on Friday night, with some pockets of freeze conditions possible. Enjoy the last day of summer temps, and for those hoping for cooler weather, relief is on the way!
