Brandon Weatherz: Sunny until a wet stretch starts Friday

April 24: Sunny until a wet stretch starts Friday

Daily forecast from the Storm Track Weather team

We can thank a broad area of high pressure in Ontario for abundant sunshine today. This high has also brought the ingredients for a cool and frosty morning with temps in 20s and even teens. You’ll want some time to attend to the frost on the windshield before hitting the road. The dry air today will allow for near critical fire weather in northern Minnesota even without much strength to the wind. We’ll warm into mid-50s to low 60s in the Northland today with the temp rising as you look west. However, and east wind around 10 mph will keep us in the 40s in the Twin Ports and along the shorelines of Lake Superior.

Tonight sees temps into 20s to mid-30s, then Thursday is warm and sunny with widespread 60s. It’ll still be cooler near Lake Superior with 40s immediately by the water. Needed moisture is on track to come to the Northland in two rounds. One system brings wet weather Friday into Saturday, and a second system will bring rain chances Sunday into Monday. Both systems will also bring breezy winds with the strongest winds expected on Sunday out of the east. Warm and sunny weather returns next Tuesday.
