Some of that warmth that is building across western Canada the next few days will be spilling southeast into the Northland mid to late week with highs Wednesday, Thursday and Friday forecast to be in the 70s in most of northeast Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin, there is a chance that a few locations could even hit 80 degrees late this week. Note: A lake breeze is possible at times from mid to late week, and if one occurs, then temps will be much cooler around Lake Superior.
Northern Minnesota got some rain last night into this morning while another area of rain impacted most of northwest Wisconsin on this Memorial Day 2019.

An active weather pattern is still in place but the storm track has shifted farther south early this week which means that most of the rain Tuesday and Wednesday will remain south of the Northland.
Low temperature forecast for Tuesday morning, May 28.
A chilly night ahead in northern Minnesota as lows fall into the 30s. Milder temps in northwest Wisconsin and eastern Minnesota with lows tonight in the low to mid 40s.
High temperature forecast for Tuesday, May 28.
Milder temperatures return to most areas Tuesday with highs right around average for late May in the mid 60s to around 70 degrees. A lake breeze will linger into Tuesday however, and this will keep it cooler near Lake Superior, but the lake wind shouldn’t be as strong as what we had on Monday, so temps near Lake Superior should be able to get into the 50s on Tuesday which is still cool for this time of year but not as cold as what occurred on Monday.
No rain is forecast on Tuesday while sky conditions vary between partly sunny and mostly cloudy across the area.
