Strong low pressure centered east of Hudson Bay Canada this afternoon with high pressure building into Manitoba province. The low will continue lift off to the NE while the high builds ESE through the weekend.

Cool temps across the Northland Friday and Saturday, but it will be dry. Highs Friday and Saturday in the 60s to lower 70s but it will be cooler near Lake Superior as winds become east once again. Those east winds continue on Sunday so another cool day is likely near Lake Superior, but it will be warmer inland with highs in the 70s on Sunday.

Another day of pop-up showers along with a few thunderstorms across the Northland thanks to some cold air aloft, warmer temps near the surface and weak instability. Note: Showers will diminish around or a little after sunset this evening.
