Tonight (August 31st)

High pressure over the Upper Midwest will keep skies clear to partly cloudy Tonight with pleasantly cool temperatures.  Lows will be in the 40s and 50s with a few 30s possible in the traditional cold spots.  Patchy fog could develop late, and winds will remain light out of the north or east around 10 mph.

Saturday and Saturday Night (September 1st)

Welcome to Meteorological fall (September-November)  Partly to at times mostly cloudy skies are forecast this period as high pressure moves off to our east with low pressure to our west.  It should remain dry this period with highs Tomorrow in the 70s and 80s with lows Tomorrow Night mainly in the 50s.  Winds will be out of the south or east at 10 to 15 mph.

Extended Forecast, Sunday through Tuesday (September 2nd-4th)

There is a chance for a few showers or thunderstorms for Sunday and Labor Day as an area of low pressure along with a warm front and cold front move across the Northland.  At this time it appears that the best chance for some rain would be late Sunday Afternoon and Sunday Night, continuing into Monday Morning.  Monday Afternoon/Night look mainly dry at this time.  Another opportunity for a few showers or thunderstorms will come next Tuesday as a new cold front heads into the Upper Midwest.  High temperatures for Sunday and Monday will be in the 70s and 80s with highs on Tuesday generally in the 70s.  Low temperatures will be in the 50s and 60s Sunday Night and mainly the 50s for Monday Night.

Long Range Forecast (September 5th-10th)

The GFS and EUROPEAN computer models continue to show a pattern change for late next week/weekend (6th-9th) Both models indicate the development of an upper level low/trough from Central Canada, south into the Upper Midwest and Great Lakes, although they do differ as to how deep and amplified this trough will be.  If we do see this type of pattern set-up, then there will be a chance for some rain showers from next Thursday-Sunday (6th-8th)  Temperatures are forecast to be near to below normal during this period.

Issued at 2:23 PM CDT, Thursday, August 30th, 2012

*Still need an additional 9-12″ of precipitation to get back to average in Northwest and parts of Northern Minnesota (red shaded areas)  All of Northwestern Wisconsin would need 3-6″ of precipitation to get back to normal.

*Isaac won’t be bothering the Northland this weekend, but it will hit the Ohio Valley, and points west-south with lots of rain, some locations could receive more than 3-5″ of rain this Labor Day weekend, this will put a dent in the ongoing drought, but in the short term it may lead to some flash flooding.

Weather Tidbits:

*The new drought monitor is in and there isn’t too much of a change compared to last week in either Minnesota or Wisconsin.  For Minnesota:  37% is in moderate drought (36% last week) 19% is in severe drought (17% last week)  The worst drought conditions continue to be in Northwest and Southern Minnesota and also affecting the Southern half of Wisconsin.

*Lots of heat This Afternoon in Southern Minnesota, here’s some temperatures from 2 PM Today.  Owatonna, 97F.  Windom, Fairmont, Waseca, Red Wing, and Austin all checked in at 95F.

*14 preliminary tornado reports since Wednesday as Tropical Storm Isaac moves slowly toward the north across Louisiana and Mississippi.  (SPC)

Today’s Weather Summary for Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin

A cold front continues to settle south/east through the Northland.  Clouds were more persistent Today than what was expected 24 hours ago, and the coverage of rain showers and isolated thunderstorms has been somewhat greater than what was forecasted.  The result from all this has been for cooler temperatures Today, but still above average for the 2nd to last day of August.  As of 2 PM temperatures ranged from the 70s and 80s in most of Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin with a 91 degree temperature reported at Phillips, WI.  Dew points Today were in the 50s and 60s with winds out of the southwest or north at 10 to 20 mph.

Today’s Upper Level Analysis:

A west-southwest flow covered the Upper Midwest with an upper trough over the Northwest U.S. and an upper level ridge covering the Plains, Southern U.S., Ohio Valley, and Southern Great Lakes.  850mb temperatures as of 2 PM ranged from +20 to +24C in Southern-Eastern Minnesota to +14 to +18C in the rest of the state.

Tonight (August 30th)

Partly to mostly cloudy skies will continue into early Evening with clearing skies by mid-Evening and through the Overnight hours.  A few rain showers or isolated thunderstorms are possible, mainly before 7 PM.  A cold front responsible for this activity will exit to our south/east before Midnight with high pressure building east out of the Northern Plains.  Lows Tonight will be in the 50s to around 60 degrees, but some 40s are likely in North Central Minnesota.  Winds will be out of the north or west at 10 to 20 mph.

Friday and Friday Night (August 31st)

Extended Forecast, Saturday through Monday (September 1st-3rd)

Dry weather should continue on Saturday with highs in the 70s and 80s, lows will be in the 50s to around 60 degrees.  A chance for showers or thunderstorms will return for Sunday and Labor Day as a low pressure system and it’s warm front and cold front pass through the area.  High temperatures will stay in the 70s and 80s on Sunday and Monday with lows Sunday Night in the 50s and 60s.

Long Range Forecast (September 4th-9th)

A pattern change may be coming toward the end of this period.  Will start out with a continued west or west-southwest flow for the 4th-5th, along with that will come another cold front which may spawn a few showers or thunderstorms around the Northland sometime next Tuesday-Wednesday.  The mid/upper level flow is forecast to amplify quite a bit from the 7th-9th with a NW or even a north-northwest flow developing across the Upper Midwest and Great Lakes…An upper level system to our NE could also mean a few Afternoon-Evening showers in Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin late next week.  Temperatures are forecast to be near average, although they could dip a bit below average between the 7th-9th.

Tonight (August 29th)

A cold front will move into the Western half of Minnesota Overnight.  Isolated showers or thunderstorms might develop along and ahead of this front after Midnight, some of this activity may move through the Western-Northern parts of our area.  Partly cloudy skies are forecast with balmy lows in the 60s to around 70 degrees with a few 50s possible as well.  Winds will be out of the south, west, or east at 5 to 15 mph.

Thursday and Thursday Night (August 30th)

A cold front will move SE and through our area on Thursday, this boundary will then stall out to our south by Thursday Night.  Not a whole lot of moisture or instability for this front to work with, also looks very warm (capped) aloft with 700mb temperatures of +12 to +14C and 850mb temperatures of +20 to +28C.  Partly to mostly cloudy skies are expected during this period with isolated showers or thunderstorms possible, mainly in Eastern Minnesota into Northwest Wisconsin from Thursday Afternoon into Thursday Evening.  Northern Minnesota may see a few showers Tomorrow Morning with dry conditions thereafter.

Today’s Weather Summary for Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin

High pressure of 1020mb covered the Great Lakes and Southern Ontario with low pressure of 1010mb in Southern South Dakota.  Skies were partly to mostly sunny in the Northland Today with a couple of rain showers and isolated thunderstorms affecting Southwest parts of our area, or around the Brainerd Lakes during the Morning hours.  High temperatures Today were in the 70s and 80s with east or southeast winds at 5 to 15 mph.

Forecast Discussion for Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin

Tonight through Wednesday Night (August 28th-29th)

High pressure will be located to our east with low pressure and a stationary front to our west-southwest.  The big story on Wednesday will be the heat as high temperatures climb into the 90s in Western-Southern portions of Minnesota.  80s to near 90 degree temperatures will be common in our local area Tomorrow with 70s closer to Lake Superior.  Low temperatures Tonight will be in the 50s, but 40s are possible in the typical cold spots, there may also be some patchy fog Overnight.  Lows Wednesday Night will be in the 50s and 60s.  Skies for the most part should remain partly cloudy through this period.

Extended Forecast, Thursday through Saturday (August 30th-September 1st)

A cold front will move SE and through our area on Thursday, this boundary looks to become stationary to our south for Friday and Saturday with high pressure passing by to our north.  Isolated showers or thunderstorms could develop in Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin on Thursday, otherwise it looks mainly dry through Saturday.  Thursday looks very warm with high temperatures in the 80s and 90s, some locations in the Southern half of Minnesota might even soar to around 100 degrees.  Lows Thursday Night will be in the 50s to lower 60s.  High temperatures for Friday and Saturday will be in the 70s and 80s with lows Friday Night mainly in the 50s.

*12z 8.28.12 NAM-HIRES model valid for Thursday Afternoon.  This model is actually showing quite a few showers/t-showers in the Northland as a cold front sags SE on Thursday.  Seems to be an awful lot of warm air aloft (cap) and not much moisture for this cold front to work with, so will see how future model runs handle things for Thursday, right now I’m still thinking that odds are with us that the cold front comes through Duluth on the dry side.

*HPC just spitting out meaningless amounts of rain in Minnesota on Thursday, totals

Long Range Forecast (September 2nd-7th)

Still seeing signs that there could be a few showers or thunderstorms in our area for the 2nd-3rd, and possibly again toward the 5th.  Temperatures are forecast to be near to above average through this period.

Dry for the next several days in Duluth; Heat wave away from Lake Superior by mid-week; 90 degrees in Duluth on Thursday? Latest maps on Tropical Storm (soon to be Hurricane Isaac)

*Rainfall forecast valid for 7 PM Wednesday until 7 PM Thursday per HPC.  The Silver 1000 is this Thursday at the Proctor Speedway (Duluth, Minnesota) Right now it looks dry for the race, any rain that does develop should be very spotty and mainly west-north of Duluth.

*Tropical Storm Isaac is forecast to dump a lot of rain over the Southeast U.S. this week.  Flooding will likely become a major issue during the next several days.  (map from the HPC)

*Hurricane Warning in red.  Tropical Storm Warning in blue.  Tropical Storm Watch in yellow.  (NHC)

*Here’s the latest track of Isaac per National Hurricane Center.  Looks to make landfall as a Category 1, possibly a CAT 2 Hurricane in Southern-Southeastern Louisiana Tuesday Evening or Wednesday.

Today’s Weather Summary for Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin

Skies were partly to mostly sunny with cooler daytime temperatures compared to previous days, but highs Today were still near to above average for late August with 70s and lower 80s throughout the Northland.  Winds were out of the north or northwest at 10 to 15 mph.

Today’s Upper Level Analysis:

A northwest flow covered the Upper Midwest with an expanding upper level ridge in place from the Rockies through the Central/Southern U.S.  850mb temperatures as of 3 PM ranged from +16 to +20C in Southern Minnesota to +12 to +14C in the rest of Minnesota.

Forecast Discussion for Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin

Tonight through Tuesday Night (August 27th-28th)

Clear-partly cloudy skies are forecast during this period as high pressure passes through the Upper Midwest.  Lows Tonight and Tuesday Night will mainly be in the 40s and 50s with highs on Tuesday in the 70s and 80s.  A stationary front sitting to our southwest may touch off a few showers or thunderstorms during this period, but this activity is not expected to affect our area.

Extended Forecast, Wednesday through Friday (August 29th-31st)

It still looks like a very warm airmass will spread into the Upper Midwest for Wednesday and Thursday with 850mb temperatures of +20 to +30C, this should result in daytime highs reaching the 80s and 90s in Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin with even some low 100s possible outside of our local area.  It does appear that an onshore wind will occur near Lake Superior on Wednesday, possibly even into Thursday, if that happens then temperatures closer to the big lake will be somewhat cooler compared to Inland locations.   High temperatures on Friday will be in the 70s and 80s.  Not much threat for any rain from mid-late week, although there will be a cold front that moves SE through our area for Thursday and Friday.  A strong cap in place (warm air aloft) low amounts of moisture and marginal instability should only result in very isolated shower/thunderstorm activity for later this week the way it looks now.  Low temperatures for Wednesday Night and Thursday Night will be in the 50s and 60s.

Long Range Forecast (September 1st-6th)

A few showers or thunderstorms are possible sometime between the 2nd-4th (Sunday-Tuesday) Otherwise it looks dry with near to above average temperatures through this period.

5 DAY FORECAST FOR DULUTH/SUPERIOR
