Summer weather returns Thursday, strong storms possible beginning Thursday night
TODAY: The second cold front finally brought relief to the Northland by decreasing dewpoints which in turn decreased the humidity. Winds were breezy from the west-northwest from the cold front, but the winds will calm down through the day. High pressure over the Dakotas will keep the Northland dry and sunny today with seasonal highs in the upper 70s. Humidity will be low, so it’ll be a beautiful day. Winds will continue to be from the northwest between 5-10 mph.
TONIGHT: Clear skies will continue through the overnight hours thanks to high pressure. Lows will fall to seasonal temperatures in the mid to upper 50s with low humidity. Winds will continue to be calm from the west between 3-6 mph. As high pressure moves to the south of the Northland overnight, winds will change direction to the southwest indicating warmer temperatures and higher humidity returning to the Northland by Thursday. This will create for another warm and humid day for Thursday.
THURSDAY: The day will start out mostly sunny, but temperatures will begin to warm up rapidly due to the southwest winds. Winds will be breezy between 10-20 mph gusting up to 30 mph. With high pressure to the southeast of the Northland and another system developing in western Canada, this will drive a warmer climate to the area. Highs will be back into the upper 80s and lower 90s and this will linger into Friday. Clouds will increase by the afternoon with isolated chances of showers. The main round of showers and storms looks to begin late Thursday night with a few possibly becoming strong. More showers and storms are likely for both Friday and Saturday.
