Monday's forecast for the Northland: Temps remain below average
A look at the week ahead.
Temperatures will remain a good ten degrees below average on Monday. An area of high pressure to our north will be responsible for abundant sunshine. Northwest winds will be occasionally gusty with fire risks remaining high for much of the Northland.
A ridge of warmer air to our west will gradually move in and bring us closer to the 60-degree highs typical of this time of year by the end of the week. A system approaches from the north on Wednesday as southerly flow carries in moisture, resulting in rain chances arriving in the afternoon and evening. This round tapers off overnight into early Thursday morning with a widespread chance for several tenths of an inch of rain in total. We may see isolated thunderstorms develop Thursday evening as daytime heating leads to instability.
MONDAY: Mostly sunny, cool, and breezy. High 50. NW wind 5-15 mph.
TUESDAY: Mostly sunny and a touch warmer. High 55. W wind 5-10 mph.
WEDNESDAY: Mostly cloudy with a chance for showers arriving in the afternoon. High 53. SE wind 5-15 mph.
THURSDAY: Chance of showers and isolated thunderstorms. High 58.
FRIDAY: Partly cloudy. High 61.
