Saturday's weather for Duluth and the Northland: Cool and cloudy with chance of rain

Adam Clark

SATURDAY: A low-pressure system pushes east into Upper Michigan, bringing a good chance of rain for areas east of Ashland. High pressure builds from the northwest, which should keep places west of Ashland drier with only a 30 percent chance of a pop-up thunderstorm in the afternoon. Expect mostly cloudy skies with highs in the upper 60s. An east wind will keep temperatures cooler by the lake.

SUNDAY: Another low is approaching the Northland, dragging a cold front through the region in the late afternoon/evening and bringing a 50 percente chance of storms. Morning lows will be in the low 50s, with highs in the low 70s. Overnight into Monday there will be an 80 percent chance of storms, some severe, with heavy rain, high winds and hail the primary threats. Flooding will be a concern again as soils are moist.

MONDAY: The cold front will slowly push east and the rain goes with it. Expect lows in the upper 50s and highs again in the low 70s. Chance of rain will be 50 percent, continuing for places east of the Twin Ports into the afternoon. 

TUESDAY: Expect partly cloudy skies with lows in the low 50s and highs in the low 70s. A small wave in the jet stream will bring a 30 percent chance of showers and storms.
