Brandon Weatherz: Waves of showers follow us into the weekend
[anvplayer video=”5196519″ station=”998130″]
Our Friday starts with areas of locally dense fog, particularly across northern Minnesota. Be ready to reduce speed and use low-beams until visibility improves in the late morning. We had a few isolated showers early this morning near a front that’s draped across the Northland, but those have diminished and we should stay dry into the afternoon. We look from the northwest for scattered showers to arrive in the late afternoon and evening with rain chances reaching the Twin Ports around 7 pm.
Rain then fills out the Arrowhead and the South Shore through the evening and overnight. Occasional showers may linger in these same areas through Thursday morning and into the afternoon, then we’ll trend drier by Saturday evening. Sunday remains rather dry. A quick round of light rain is possible north of Duluth Sunday night into Monday morning, then a wetter stretch arrives with waves of rain chances from Monday night through Wednesday night. We’re monitoring a potential system that could impact the Northland late next week, but it’s too early to have confidence in that system’s track.
