Monday's forecast for the Northland: Areas away from the lake could reach 90 degrees
Most of the shower and thunderstorm threat Monday will remain over our western and northern areas of the Northland, but the rest of us will see a heavy rain threat by Tuesday and Wednesday.
Monday: A lake breeze in the morning will continue to keep temperatures much cooler by Lake Superior for the first part of our Monday, but winds will eventually shift more out of the south and push temperatures to a high near 81 degrees in the afternoon. Areas farther inland will likely be pushing into the upper 80s and low 90s with high humidity. The heat and humidity will lead to the chance of severe thunderstorms north and west of the Iron Range with the rest of us staying mainly dry under a mix of clouds and sunshine.
Monday night: We will continue to see a chance of thunderstorms to the north, some of which could be severe with large hail, damaging winds, and flash flooding the main concerns. The Twin Ports should stay dry with mostly cloudy skies and a low near 62.
Tuesday: Moisture from what is left of tropical storm Cristobal will combine with a cold front across the region to bring the potential for heavy widespread rain across the region. Expect overcast skies with a high near 75 and increasing chances of showers and storms into the afternoon.
Heavy rain is expected to continue Tuesday night into Wednesday with 1-3 inches possible. Showers begin to taper off Thursday with dry, sunny, and cooler conditions moving in by the weekend.
