Thursday's weather for Duluth and the Northland: Chance of scattered thunderstorms

Adam Clark

THURSDAY: The jet stream is still in a large trough pattern over the eastern states and ridge for the western. The jet is right over the Northland, which provides uplift to warrant a 20 percent chance of isolated storms this afternoon mainly east of the Twin Ports. Highs will be in the upper 70s with northwest winds at 5-10 mph.

FRIDAY: Not much changes. We will still have the jet stream overhead, which will give us another 20 percent chance of isolated afternoon storms. Lows will be in the mid-50s and highs in the upper 70s. 

SATURDAY: The trough will start to break down and a small ridge will ride east over the area, keeping us warm and dry. Lows will be in the low 50s and highs in the mid- to upper 70s. 

SUNDAY: A weak shortwave in the jet stream to our north will push close and give us a few more clouds and a 30 percent chance of scattered storms. Lows will be in the mid-50s and highs will be in the mid-70s.
