A warm front that passed overnight has paved the way for a warm and breezy Friday. Winds will be breezy out of the southwest behind this first front, then switching to a west wind behind the cold front which follows Friday afternoon and evening. The second front will bring a few clouds, but we should stay dry. Our cool spots will be northwestern parts of the Northland where the cold front will reach first, with a high near 67 for International Falls, but the majority of the region will push into low to mid 70s before temps drop. High pressure moves back in Friday night and Saturday with clear skies, allowing temps to begin in the mid 30s to low 40s and rise to the mid 50s to low 60s. A north wind becomes east by Saturday afternoon, keeping the shorelines cool. A strong system begins brewing to our west on Sunday with breezy south winds kicking in and bringing us back into the 60s, though a southeast wind keeps the North Shore much cooler. Thunderstorm chances approach from the west Sunday evening and move east throughout the day Monday with the wettest period expected overnight. Heavy accumulation will be possible.
