Strong storms possible Sat. night, more storms likely Monday night
TONIGHT: Scattered thunderstorms are likely this evening across mainly northern Minnesota ahead of an incoming low-pressure system. Some of these storms have the potential of becoming strong to severe during the early evening hours over northern Minnesota. There is a slight risk for severe weather over Itasca, Aitkin, and part of western St. Louis County with the rest of northern Minnesota counties and northwest Wisconsin under a marginal risk. The main threats are damaging winds and hail with a very low chance of a tornado. Temperatures will fall to the lower 60s and upper 50s with late fog developing once the storms end after midnight. Winds will change from the northeast to the west by Sunday.
SUNDAY: Showers and storms will briefly finish on Sunday, but clouds will stick around for football. Sunday football looks to be mostly cloudy with breezy winds from the west between 10-20 mph. Temperatures will only reach the upper 60s and maybe a few 70s. Lows will fall to the mid to lower 50s. High pressure behind the low-pressure system will keep Sunday and most of Monday dry and calm before the next round of storms comes through Monday night into Tuesday morning.
MONDAY: High pressure will continue to keep the Northland quiet and calm with more sunshine to start the week. Although, this will be short-lived as another system will form over Wyoming. This will bring more chances of scattered showers and thunderstorms for Monday night into Tuesday. No severe weather is expected with these storms. Otherwise, Monday will be mostly sunny with highs in the mid 70s thanks to a warm front. Lows will only fall to the lower 60s. By Tuesday morning, the showers should be done with sunshine returning and warmer than average highs stick around before a drastic cooldown comes.
