WEATHER STORY:

Two low pressure systems to the west will create a single rain chance for the region on Tuesday. The first may make for showers and storms in northern Minnesota Tuesday morning. The second low will fire up a region-wide shot Tuesday afternoon and evening. The Northland has a slight chance for severe weather region-wide on Tuesday according to the storm prediction center in Norman, OK. The lows will leave and a new high will clear the sky on Wednesday. In the wake of the lows, a half to full inch of rain could fill up our rain gauges.

MONDAY NIGHT:

The sky will stay partly cloudy and give us dry conditions Monday evening and a good portion of early Tuesday morning. Low temps will be 52-60. The wind will be W 5-10 in MN and SE 5-10 in WI and MI.

TUESDAY:

The lows from the west will start their 60% chance for severe storms from 4 am to noon for Minnesota’s Arrowhead near and north of the Iron Ranges. The rest of the region from east central MN to the U.P. will get the best storm chance late afternoon through the evening - perhaps a window of 4 pm to midnight. The afternoon highs will be 67-78 by Lake Superior. Inland readings will be 80-86. The wind will be SSE 5-15 mph.
