WDIO Storm Track Weather Outlook: Thursday, September 16th, 2021
Meteorologist Brandon Weathers

Severe Storms Possible This Evening

We can thank cloud cover overnight for a much milder start to our day with temps in the 60s. It'll shape up to be another warm day with highs mostly in mid-70s to low 80s. South winds will continue to be breezy sustained in the teens and gusting near 30 mph. Early morning showers and thunderstorms will continue to move east across the Northland with most areas dry by 10 am. We then direct our attention along a passing cold front for potentially severe thunderstorms beginning in north central Minnesota this afternoon and tracking across the Northland through the evening. Expect rain to reach the Twin Ports around 6 pm. Large hail and damaging winds are the main hazards. Heavy rain will also be possible and a tornado cannot be ruled out. Storms move across northwest Wisconsin overnight and lose intensity with showers lingering into Friday morning. All said and done, widespread accumulation should be around a half inch with locally higher amounts. High pressure then brings clear skies for a cooler Friday behind today's front. We should stay dry through the weekend with temps bumping into the 80s on Sunday, then Monday looks to begin an active stretch of weather.

Today: Mix of clouds and sun and breezy. Strong thunderstorms possible after 6 pm. High 77. S wind 10-20 mph.

Tonight: Mostly cloudy with showers and thunderstorms. Low 54. S wind becoming NW 10-15 mph.

Friday: Partly cloudy. High 67. W wind 10-15 mph.

Saturday: Mostly sunny. High 68. S wind 5-10 mph.

Sunday: Mostly sunny, warm and breezy. High 82. S wind 10-20 mph.

Monday: Mostly cloudy and breezy with a chance for evening thunderstorms. High 80. S wind 10-15 mph.

Tuesday: Mostly cloudy and breezy with a chance for showers and thunderstorms. High 68. SW wind 10-15 mph.

Wednesday: Mostly cloudy with a chance for showers. High 63. W wind 10-15 mph.
