Monday's forecast for the Northland: Evening thunderstorms possible
The area of high pressure that allowed for an overall quiet weekend will stick around for a sunny start to our Monday after areas of morning fog. Clouds begin to increase from the west ahead of our next rainmaker.
Monday: Severe thunderstorms will develop near the North Dakota border Monday evening and slide eastward across our region overnight as a front passes. Thunderstorms will weaken as they progress across the Northland with large hail and damaging winds as the main concerns. There's a slight chance for tornado development with a better chance to our west. Temperature-wise, an east wind limits highs along the shores of Lake Superior Monday while low 80s are achieved inland.
Tuesday: Scattered showers and thunderstorms remain possible Tuesday with the bulk of available moisture lingering across Northwest Wisconsin. All said and done, widespread accumulation around a half-inch of rain is expected across Northeast Minnesota and into Douglas County, and between 1 and 2 inches is possible stretching from Burnett County across the South Shore. The combination of cloud cover, showers, and cooler air behind the front will keep highs in the low to mid 70s across the Northland Tuesday.
Wednesday: Warmth builds back into the region Wednesday with 80s continuing through the weekend. Daytime heating may trigger a stray shower within this period, but the next widespread chance for showers is looking to be Friday night into Saturday at this time.
