High temperature forecast for Sunday, July 21.

Highs in the 70s across the entire Northland Sunday. An east wind is forecast near Lake Superior which could keep it a couple degrees cooler in lakeside locations, but with water temps in the southwest part of Lake Superior in the mid to upper 60s any lake breeze won’t affect the temperature too much.

Partly sunny to mostly cloudy skies on Sunday and there is a chance for a few spotty showers.

18z NAM-WRF model radar forecast valid from 7 PM Saturday to 7 PM Sunday.
