Monday: An area of high pressure keeps dry air in place, allowing for comfortable dew points in the 50s. Highs max out in the low to mid-70s across the Northland with a few clouds in the sky. Winds will be light and variable becoming more easterly as we head throughout the day. Clouds thicken overnight as our next rain maker moves in from the west. Showers and thunderstorms move in by the early morning hours and linger through Tuesday as the responsible low-pressure system skirts across Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Tuesday: East winds will be breezy, but this won't impact temperatures too much because the combination of cool air, clouds, and rain will keep temperatures in the 60s for much of the region. After Tuesday, the next widespread chance for thunderstorms doesn't arrive until Friday. Temperatures gradually climb back into the 80s as we head into the weekend.

Wednesday: Partly cloudy. High 73. E 5-10 mph.
