Wednesday: Scattered showers and thunderstorms continue through the morning and move east across northern Wisconsin in the early afternoon. We then look west for the redevelopment of thunderstorms in western Minnesota that will track across the Northland through the evening as a front passes. Some storms may produce hail and damaging winds. Severe potential should stay south of Grand Rapids and the Iron Range.

Our Wednesday will otherwise be warm and humid under a mix of clouds and sun. East winds begin the day, but the passing system shifts winds out of the west in the afternoon and spreads the warmth along the shorelines. Highs range from the low to upper 80s with heat indices approaching 90 from Aitkin to Ashland.

Thursday: Showers move south overnight with an area of high pressure sliding in for a dry Thursday with highs in the mid-70s to low 80s.

Friday: Storms approach from the south Thursday night and linger across Northwest Wisconsin Friday morning, then another system sliding in brings an evening round for northern Minnesota. Once this clears, the weather should cooperate nicely with weekend plans.
