Thursday: An area of high pressure will keep the quiet trend going through Friday, continuing to cooperate with outdoor plans. The high locks in seasonable temperatures, limits cloud cover and keeps winds light. Highs once again reach into the mid to upper 70s across the Northland, but winds out of the east will keep us cooler near Lake Superior. Temperatures drop back into the upper 40s to mid 50s Thursday night with clear skies and calm winds.

Friday: Winds remain light Friday but become southwesterly, warming us up along the shoreline. Temperatures will reach a high near 80. We finally lose the influence of the area of high pressure Friday night as an approaching system stirs up showers from the west. These slide west to east across the Northland through the day Saturday as a cold front passes.

Saturday: Thunderstorms are not expected to be severe. The system will be responsible for a brief return of sticky humidity Saturday, then dry air behind the cold front knocks dew points back down Sunday with low chances for lingering showers in the morning. Accumulation will be rather light, although areas experiencing drought conditions can expect little relief. Highs will be in the upper 70s.
