Sunday's weather for Duluth and the Northland: Shaking off the cold snap

Just when you thought it was safe to enjoy spring, a big storm dumps over a foot of snow in Wisconsin. That is followed by a region-wide cold snap for a few days. Saturday felt like March but today should come up more May-like.

Just when you thought it was safe to enjoy spring, a big storm dumps over a foot of snow in Wisconsin. That is followed by a region-wide cold snap for a few days. Saturday felt like March but today should come up more May-like.

A cell of high pressure is trying to take the region back from the low that brought rain on Saturday. The clash between the two systems will yield a sky that should vary between partly sunny and mostly cloudy. The clouds have a 30 percent chance of dropping more rain showers. The inland high temperatures will go from 53 to 58, but northeasterly winds from 5-10 will help keep it cooler by the lake.

On Monday, the high should win the battle, and that will mean a sunnier sky. The sunshine will help bring highs back into the 60s, which will reign until Wednesday. The boost in heat will help create a few thunderstorms on Wednesday and Thursday.

Five-day forecast
Sunday: Mostly cloudy with a 30 percent chance of rain showers. High 53, low 38
Monday: Partly sunny. High 63, low 42
Tuesday: Partly cloudy. High 66, low 46
Wednesday: Mostly cloudy with a 30 percent chance of thunderstorms. High 66, low 44
Thursday: Mostly cloudy with a 30 percent chance of thunderstorms. High 58, low 38
