Fog gradually improves throughout the morning, lingering longest near Lake Superior. Skies remain mostly cloudy Friday. The east wind will be more persistent than previously thought, keeping highs in the 60s along the shorelines. East Central Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin will be the warm spots reaching the mid 70s. The Arrowhead region will also be stuck in the 60s with a cold front passing. This will stir up showers and thunderstorms Friday afternoon and evening, tracking across Northwest Wisconsin Friday night. Some storms may be capable of hail up to 1 inch in diameter and wind gusts approaching 60 mph. Saturday will similarly begin with fog, followed by mostly cloudy skies lingering throughout the day. Highs range from the low to upper 60s. Another passing system brings showers and thunderstorms in the evening. Once again, the strongest storms are expected across Northwest Wisconsin. This cold front paves the way for a breezy and cooler Sunday. A few evening showers will approach from Northwestern Minnesota. Temperatures trend cooler through the week ahead.
