Warming Trend Continues

An inversion with warmer air aloft than at the surface kept many areas in fog, clouds, and 60 degree temperatures through the first chunk of the day, but temperatures away from the lake were able to eventually climb into the mid 70s. A layer of fog over Lake Superior kept much gloomier and cooler conditions in place for Superior and areas along the shores.

These conditions will be repeated Monday with a foggy start to the day eventually seeing times of sun. Temperatures about a mile above the surface will be warm enough to see areas away from the lake tap into the low 80s, but this would require beating the inversion. A steadier south wind will assist with this, though it will likely happen in the late afternoon, similar to today. Once again, conditions near the shores will be much cooler and shrouded in fog due to a more substantial southeast wind developing.

We continue to deal with an inversion Tuesday, but temperatures should be able to return to the mid 70s away from the shores. A system approaching will provide the chance for strong to severe thunderstorms moving across the Arrowhead in the afternoon and evening with thunderstorms crossing eastward across the Northland overnight. Lingering showers and thunderstorms will be possible Wednesday with breezy southwest winds and temperatures staying in the mid 70s. Thursday will be a brief quiet period with mostly sunny skies and highs staying in the mid 70s. Chance for showers and thunderstorms arrive Friday and continue through the weekend.

MONDAY: Partly cloudy with highs around 73°. Southeast winds 5-10 mph gusting at 15 mph.

TUESDAY: Mostly cloudy with thunderstorms possible and highs around 78°. South winds 5-15 mph.

WEDNESDAY: Mostly cloudy and breezy with scattered showers and thunderstorms. Highs around 75°. Southwest winds 10-15 mph.

THURSDAY: Mostly sunny with highs around 73°.

FRIDAY: Scattered showers and thunderstorms with highs around 70°.

SATURDAY: Chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms. High around 68°.

SUNDAY: Mostly cloudy with lingering showers and a high near 67°.

Thanks for reading and have a great day!
