Nationwide, the Northland's weather is famous for its fickleness. April had more snow than we knew what to do with. Then last week, we got so dry that fires popped up everywhere. For the next few days, it may become wet enough to contemplate ark blueprints.

A very slow-moving low is with us today, causing a 90 percent chance of rain and storms. The highs inland should be 68 to 75, cooler by Lake Superior.

The low will still be here on Monday, and the chance of rain will be 95 percent. Cooler air wrapping behind the low will send the high down to 60. By Monday night, some computer models indicate we'll have accumulated an inch-and-a-half of rain since Saturday.

The rain chance will last through Tuesday and Wednesday. Come Thursday, the sun should finally re-appear, and highs will return to the mid-60s.

Five-day forecast
Sunday: Mostly cloudy with a 90 percent chance of rain and thunderstorms. High: 72. Low: 50.
Monday: Mostly cloudy with a 95 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. High: 60. Low: 44.
Tuesday: Mostly cloudy with a 75 percent chance of rain and thunderstorms. High: 60. Low: 42.
Wednesday: Partly sunny with a 40 percent chance of rain. High: 60. Low: 42.
Thursday: Partly cloudy. High: 65. Low: 41.
