StormTeam Outlook: Sunday, July 5th
Heavy Rain & Thunderstorms on the Way
A cold front draped over the Dakotas is heading in our direction, but it's moving at a snail's pace allowing for thunderstorms to fire this afternoon. As a result, the National Weather Service has issued a Severe Thunderstorms Watch for St. Louis and Itasca Counties and areas to the south and west until 11pm tonight as these storms move to the east. Showers and thunderstorms will eventually affect the Twin Ports and the North Shore near sundown and Wisconsin after dark. Temperatures will slowly tumble through the 70s as a strong southerly flow pushes warmer air to the north. Winds will gust as high as 25 mph. Eventually, that cold front will slide across the majority of the Northland late tonight, but that doesn't mean the rain will come to an end. An area of low pressure will ride along the front into Wisconsin creating more heavy rain and a gusty lake breeze tomorrow.
The strong summer system will finally clear the Upper Midwest by late tomorrow afternoon leading the way for a beautiful and comfortable Tuesday and Wednesday.
Thanks for reading and enjoy the holiday weekend!
