A few showers Wednesday; warm Friday forecast to finish week

A few showers will linger around parts of the Northland on Wednesday behind a cold front.

We are part of The Trust Project.

Highs will ranger from upper 60s to upper 70s around the area Wednesday with a high near 78 degrees in the afternoon for Duluth. Northwest winds will be rather gusty behind this cold front Wednesday. Expect a few periods of gusts to reach near 30 mph.

Thursday is shaping up to be a very pleasant day with upper 70s to lower 80s and plenty of sunshine with light winds. Friday will be the warmest day of the forecast with most reaching the upper 80s and some even hitting the lower 90s.
