WEATHER STORY:

Yet another low is approaching us from South Dakota and this one began paying off with severe thunderstorms on Thursday afternoon. There is a 50-60% chance for even more of them on Thursday night. Rain totals have already run from an inch to an inch and a half for a lot of places and another half inch or so is possible through early Friday morning. That could lead to flooding so people are urged to travel cautiously. Things will change rapidly on Friday, though, as a sunny sky pops back up over our heads. That dose of sunshine may last most of the week ahead.

THURSDAY NIGHT:

There will be a 50-60% chance for another half inch of rain from potentially severe thunderstorms Thursday night. Low temps will run 48-58 for most zones but the U.P. may only drop to 68. The wind will be E 10-20 in Minnesota and S 10-20 for Wisconsin and the U.P.

FRIDAY:

High air pressure will take over from the west and that will clear us up without cooling us down. In fact, most locales should warm up. The sky should be mostly sunny. The high temperatures will be near 65 by Lake Superior and will hit 70-75 for inland MN. Inland WI and the U.P. should run 78-83. The wind will be SSW 5-15 mph.

Storms may fire up again until shortly after the midnight hour but then high pressure will calm...
