We are in for a rather cool night across the Northland. Skies will remain on the Partly Cloudy to Mostly Clear skies this evening, with some more clouds overnight tonight. Winds will remain out of the E to NE around 10-20 mph by the lake, but more out of the E to SE around 5-10 mph inland. Lows tonight will fall back into the mid 40s to the lower and middle 50s.
High pressure will continue to keep us dry for Monday, allowing winds to continue off the lake around 10-20 mph. We are watching a low pressure system begin to make its way in from the southwest throughout the day on Monday, reaching southern Minnesota into Monday night. There is a 30-40% chance of showers after midnight, otherwise we are looking at Partly Cloudy to Partly Sunny skies during the day. Highs will be in the mid to upper 70s inland, 68 on top of the hill and 50s to near 60 by the lake.
The low pressure will stay down to our south, but there is enough energy with it to bring us a 50% chance of scattered rain showers and maybe an isolated t-storm. Winds will continue to be a little breezy out of the E around 10-20 mph. The rain chances are highest mainly south of the Iron Range and Arrowhead. Highs will be in the 50s lakeside, 62 on top of the hill, 67-72 across northern WI and 70-76 up to the north around I-Falls.
Much warmer weather is on its way as we head to the middle part and end of this upcoming week as a big ridge builds in the jet stream. Winds will turn more out of the S and W, allowing warmer and more humid air to move in. Wednesday and Thursday are looking pretty dry, but then there are chances of some scattered showers and storms Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Highs will get into the 80s beginning on Wednesday, with mid to upper 80s Thursday and Friday, with some areas inland possibly reaching 90. Lows overnight will be pretty mild, in the mid to upper 60s.
