With a cold front passing through the Northland this morning there may be some lingering showers or isolated thunderstorms as the atmosphere settles down. Most the showers will exit northern Wisconsin later this morning, then NW winds will drive in the cooler, and drier air. Highs will be in the lower 80's in the Ports with clearing skies into the rest of the day. Winds will be breezy out of the NW as the drier air forces out the humidity, but generally between 10-20mph. Tonight the clear skies should prevail and temperatures will really cool off. Lows will be in the upper 40's and mid to lower 50's, perfect sleeping weather. Winds should die down late this evening and dew points will drop into the 50's. Some fog may occur tonight with lingering moisture.

Saturday will be partly cloudy with highs in the lower 70's. Winds will be out of the ESE 5-10mph, so cooler along the north shore and in the Ports. Sunday there is a 30% chance of seeing some showers and storms develop as a wave ejects off an upper level low in the jet stream. Most of the showers will be south of the Ports and run into NW Wisconsin by the late morning and afternoon.

Models are bringing in a weak clipper for Monday, so chance of rain got bumped up to 50%. Highs will remain in the 70's through next week with some more chances of rain mid week.
