Friday: We're off to a milder start with temperatures in the mid-50s to low 60s. This is the first sign of the approaching warm front that will lead to a hot and muggy Friday. Dew points push into the 70s behind the front. Thunderstorms will try to move in from the west, but they run out of steam as they move eastward across the Northland with most staying dry from this round under mostly cloudy skies. Temperatures remain uncomfortable overnight with lows in the mid-60s to low 70s.

Saturday: The next chance for thunderstorms from the west arrives Saturday morning and pushes across the Arrowhead into the early afternoon with the Iron Range on the southern edge of the heaviest rain. Another round develops by evening with strong thunderstorms possible south of Two Harbors. Large hail and damaging winds are possible, but the main concern continues to be the potential for heavy rain and localized flooding. The cold front slides east Saturday night, pushing thunderstorms across Northwest Wisconsin into early Sunday morning. Temperatures will top out near 84.

Sunday: Dry air filters into the region behind the front, allowing for low chances of spotty showers and isolated thunderstorms Sunday. We will see temps reach the mid-80s. A quiet and comfortable stretch will then take us through the middle of next week.
