StormTeam Outlook: Sunday, May 21st
Someone Tell Mother Nature, "I'm Sorry."
If you've been up in the Northland for the last few months, you'll more than likely remember we had a relatively tame winter. And instead of warmer temperatures and spring-like weather, May has been more of a reminder of what it could've been like this winter. So far, we've received a little bit of everything this month, including severe weather, heavy rains and a little wintry precipitation as well. And although we saw a few bright spots from time to time this month, this weekend hasn't been any better.
Today, a slow-moving storm system will continue to provide April-like temperatures and scattered showers this afternoon.
A few downpours are expected in the Northland, and a couple rumble of thunder aren't out of the question in parts of northwestern Wisconsin. The chances of rain will last through tomorrow as this storm system slowly slides into Ontario by tomorrow evening.
If you're heading outside today, you might want to also break out the warmer jacket. Gusty winds out of the northeast will eventually change to out of the west, but that won't help the mercury from climbing out of the mid to upper 40s for most of northern Minnesota.
We'll see improving conditions with slightly warmer temperatures on Tuesday, then the skies will gradually clear by the middle of the week as high temperatures climb back into the 60s.
Thanks for reading and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
