Brandon Weatherz: Rain returns tomorrow

[anvplayer video=”5177235″ station=”998130″]

Our Wednesday begins cool with temps in the 30s for most and frost for some. Areas away from Lake Superior warm up quickly with highs ranging from upper 60s to upper 70s looking east to west. A southeast wind will keep the need for a light jacket for those by the shoreline in the Twin Ports and along the North Shore. Winds shift by tomorrow as a passing system brings scattered showers. Lake influence will be limited Thursday through Saturday, then an east wind will bring a return of “cooler by the lake” conditions Sunday and Monday.

Wildfire smoke is still in the atmosphere causing a haze, but it isn’t expected to bring unhealthy air quality to the surface today. We look west to north central Minnesota for rain to arrive overnight. There’s a slight chance a shower or thunderstorm in the Twin Ports, but the better chance for rain moves west to east across the Northland with a front Thursday morning and afternoon. Showers linger Thursday night into Friday morning, then we’ll stay dry for your weekend plans.
