Justin Liles: Winds and Rain to pick up by Friday
Winds are set to roll in off the lake tonight. This means some light rain is possible along the shoreline of the big lake heading into Thursday morning. A strong fall storm is set to impact the Northland as a low coming out of the Colorado Rockies moves northward. The biggest impact with this will be Thursday night through Saturday.
Rainfall amounts will be highest in the southern part of our viewing area, especially south of HWY 70 in northern Wisconsin. As much as 1-2” are possible in these areas. Rain will be accompanied by strong northeast winds, especially near Lake Superior on Friday. Winds will likely gust over 40 mph. With rain and wind on Friday, evening footballs games will be difficult to play. Rain looks to linger around the shoreline of Lake Superior Saturday. Drier conditions move into the region Sunday.
