StormTeam Outlook: Saturday, March 17th
Lake Breeze Returns Tomorrow
With the ample sunshine and light westerly winds we saw today, temperatures topped out in the upper 40s to low 50s. But come tomorrow, a gusty lake breeze will cool daytime temperatures back into the 30s.
Before then, it'll be a crisp and calm night in the Northland for those celebrating St. Patrick's Day. Temperatures will fall into the teens and 20s during the late overnight hours with clear skies and very light winds.
But, those winds will shift off of the lake during the mid-morning hours tomorrow creating cooler temperatures, especially for shoreline communities. Temperatures will struggle to reach the mid 30s up against Lake Superior. Away from the lake, the mercury will likely climb just above the 40 degree threshold.
A thin, but dense, low-level cloud bank will approach from the west creating overcast skies by tomorrow afternoon for a large portion of Minnesota. The rest of the Northland will see a few peeks of sunshine.
The combination of mostly cloudy skies and a lake breeze will hang around through Tuesday, which is also the First Day of Spring.
A disturbance will kick up snow showers in central and western Minnesota early Tuesday, but it appears the storms system will fizzle out as it approaches the Northland.
Abundant sunshine and slightly warmer temperatures will then return on Wednesday.
Thanks for reading and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
