Storms are on the Horizon, Chances Continue Through the Weekend

The humidity has risen as we enter Friday. This continues to increase as we see a high of 78 and some spotty showers around the Northland. This leads to chances for storms tonight and into tomorrow morning. There could be an isolated severe storm with the main concerns being damaging winds, large hail, and heavy rain in spots. A very small chance for a tornado exists as well. This will be the weaker of the two storms. We'll see a low of 65 tonight. The strong storms move East tomorrow morning and turn into scattered storm chances in Northwest Wisconsin for the afternoon. Highs approaching 80. 

The stronger storm does not arrive until Sunday afternoon and continues through the evening as it looks like Northeast Minnesota gets the brunt of it. Concerns are damaging winds, large hail, and heavy rain in spots. Things calm down with highs around 80 with much fewer clouds as we head into the work week and we return to comfortable weather.

Today: Mostly cloudy with spotty showers. High 78. S wind 5-10 mph.

Tonight: Mostly cloudy with showers and thunderstorms. Low 65. SW wind 5-10 mph.

Saturday: Mostly cloudy with scattered showers and thunderstorms. High 80. SE wind 5-10 mph.

Sunday: Chance for afternoon and evening thunderstorms. High 79.

Monday: Partly cloudy. High 78.

Tuesday: Mostly sunny. High 78.

Wednesday: Mostly sunny. High 80.

Thursday: Chance for storms. High 80.

Thanks for reading and have a great day!
