Warm days before a cool down this weekend

Highs will continue to peak in the 80s and 90s across the Northland on Wednesday and Thursday.

Expect more sunshine than clouds with warm and hot temperatures around the area. We'll finish out our afternoons in the mid- and upper 80s both Wednesday and Thursday for Duluth.

I'm still seeing 80s in the forecast for Friday, but showers and thunderstorms will approach as a cold front heads through the Dakotas and Minnesota later on Friday.

Behind the cold front, our temperatures look to stay cooler this weekend, with highs peaking in the 70s.

Another chance of showers arrives early next week.

I grew up in Minnesota and my love of the outdoors lead me on a path to becoming in meteorologist. I got my Bachelor of Science in meteorology at St. Cloud State University. I started out my career as a TV meteorologist in Bismarck at KX News in 2010. I left Bismarck for Fargo in the fall of 2015 where I've been since working for WDAY as well as The Forum.

All that is required is a subtle rising motion in the air or a subtle cooling of the air at cloud level.
Highs Monday will likely not rise above 0.
