Near record-breaking heat today, severe storms possible toinght ahead of cold front
TODAY: The brunt of the heat wave will impact the Northland today with highs for almost all of the Northland reaching the 90s. Heat indexes will be close to triple digits hence why the NWS has issued a Heat Advisory for all of the Northland until Tuesday morning. The north shore stretching from Two Harbors to Grand Portage are not under the advisory since winds will be coming in from the southwest keeping those areas cooler. Winds will continue to be breezy from the southwest between 10-20 mph gusting up to 30 mph. Sunshine is expected for most of the day until a cold front will slowly begin to move into the area bringing chances of showers and storms beginning around dinner time. Some of these storms could be strong to severe. Main threats being damaging winds and hail.
TONIGHT: Scattered showers and storms will continue to be possible through midnight with some becoming strong to severe. Damaging winds and hail are possible. This is due to an incoming cold front which will bring relief from the heat by Tuesday. Due to the slow movement of the front, most of the Northland will continue to be muggy through the overnight hours. Lows will fall to the mid to upper 70s. Besides a few showers and storms, it will be partly to mostly cloudy.
TUESDAY: By Tuesday, temperatures will be cooler and the heat index will be lower, but it will still be warmer than average for most of the Northland. Highs will be in the mid to upper 80s. Winds will be coming in from the west helping to bring in the cooler air. Winds will be breezy between 10-20 mph. Clear skies will continue through nightfall with lows falling to the upper 50s and lower 60s. More chances of rain are possible later in the week.
