DULUTH, MN. (KBJR) -

Today: Scattered storms will continue into the 4th, but some storms could become strong to severe, specifically in northwest Wisconsin, UP, and areas south of Duluth where they are in a level 2 out of 5 threat. The main threats are damaging winds and large hail, but an isolated flood threat is possible due to heavy downpours. We will see minor improvements through the day today with more thunder through the first half of the day, with showers and storms more isolated through the second. By the time most towns will be lighting fireworks, most of the Northland will be mostly cloudy with minor chances of showers. Temperatures will be much cooler, especially around the lake due to the east winds and overcast skies. Highs around the lake will be in the lower to mid-60s, with other areas away from the lake in the upper 60s and 70s.

Tuesday: We see improving conditions through our Tuesday. We start the day with a few minor shots at a shower, but clouds will begin to clear, and we should begin to see pockets of sunshine through the afternoon. The lake breeze sticks around; lakeside, we are still stuck in the 60s while inland portions of the Northland make it into the 70s. Winds are out of the east between 10-20 mph.

We see clearing skies for our Tuesday with some scattered showers and strorms.

Wednesday: Most of us are looking at sunshine returning for our Wednesday with partly to mostly sunny skies overhead. Again, winds are out of the east and off of Lake Superior, so it will continue to be a tad cooler by the lake, with temperature in the mid to upper 70s further inland.
