Pleasant Weekend Ahead with Rain/Snow Sunday Night

The recent rain and rising levels of the Mississippi River has resulted in a Flood Warning near Aitkin that will remain in effect until further notice. Fortunately, we settle into dry conditions through much of the weekend. We reach back in low to mid 50s today with mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies across the Northland. A light wind primarily out of the north but occasionally out of the east will keep us cooler immediately near Lake Superior. Saturday will be another comfortable day under partly cloudy skies. Clouds thicken Sunday ahead of our next precip chances. A passing cold front will bring rain from the west Sunday evening with snow mixing in overnight, allowing for a potentially slick Monday morning commute. The main line of showers moves east quickly Monday, but cloudy skies and a few snow shower may linger. The main impacts will be cooler temps with highs knocked back into the 30s and breezy northwest winds. Temperatures recover with a gradual warming trend through next week.

Today: Mostly sunny. High 52. N wind 2-8 mph.

Tonight: Partly cloudy. Low 33. N wind 2-8 mph.

Saturday: Partly cloudy. High 51. N 5-10 mph.

Sunday: Mostly cloudy with a chance for rain in the evening. High 52. W 5-15 mph.

Monday: Cloudy, breezy, and cooler with a few snow showers possible. High 37. NW wind 10-15 mph.

Tuesday: Partly cloudy. High 40. NW wind 5-15 mph.

Wednesday: Partly cloudy and breezy. High 45. W wind 10-15 mph.

Thursday: Partly cloudy and breezy. High 49. W wind 10-15 mph.
