18z HRRR model 6-10-19
Radar forecast from 7 AM Tuesday to 1 AM Wednesday.
The combination of a cold front moving south across the Northland on Tuesday and an area of low pressure moving east out of South Dakota will bring some lift into the upper Midwest which will help to develop some showers and a few thunderstorms especially from Tuesday afternoon into Tuesday night. Note: Severe weather is not expected in the Northland on Tuesday, but a few storms could produce small hail, wind gusts to 35 mph, lightning and heavy downpours.
Here’s a radar loop from Monday, June 10, 2019 showing the scattering of showers and thunderstorms which tracked southeast through parts of the Northland today. A few of the storms were on the strong side with pea sized hail.

We won’t be seeing much change in the upper level weather pattern this week as northwest flow aloft will be in control across the upper Midwest, this will keep the heat well west of our area while seasonable to below normal temperatures will be found over the Northland with Wednesday being the coolest day the way it looks now.
The NW flow aloft will also keep the weather a little on the unsettled side the next few days with chances for showers Tuesday, Wednesday and possibly again later this week.
