Thursday: The early morning round of rain is being pushed eastward out of the Northland by a strong cold front. A spotty shower is possible behind the system in the afternoon, but the main effects of the front we'll continue to feel will be cool temps and strong winds. In fact, our high for the day was likely set at 12 a.m. with a temperature of 66 degrees in Duluth. We'll struggle to warm past 62 in the afternoon. West winds sustain between 15 and 25 mph with gusts ranging from 30 to 40 mph. A gale warning is in effect until 7 p.m. on Lake Superior. Clouds gradually clear by evening, beginning a stretch of mostly clear skies that will take us through Friday and Saturday.
Friday: Partly cloudy and breezy. High 68. W wind 10-15 mph.
Saturday: Mostly sunny. High 72. W wind 5-10 mph.
