Radar loop (12:00 PM to 4:30 PM) of today’s scattered thunderstorms which impacted portions of the Northland


Haven’t had very many opportunities to watch some storms so far this season thanks to a very quiet storm season around here, but today things changed a little bit, kind of reminded me of when we use to get daytime storms in the Northland, so maybe today will be the start of a little more active weather in the weeks ahead, we shall see…

Couple photos of today’s storms in northwestern Wisconsin as viewed from Duluth, Minnesota. Enjoy!

6-Hour Rainfall Reports from Sunday, June 21, 2020

Note: Totals below are through 5 PM Sunday.


Glidden, WI: 0.62″

Isabella, MN: 0.44″

Clam Lake, WI: 0.30″

McGregor, MN: 0.14″

Chisholm-Hibbing Airport: 0.06″

Duluth Airport: 0.06″

Saginaw, MN: 0.05″

Solon Springs, WI: 0.03″

Grand Marais Airport: 0.03″

Ashland, WI: 0.02″

Ely, MN: 0.02″

Scattered downpours across the Northland today, some get hit, others miss out, that’s just how it goes during the summer.

Note: The Duluth Airport picked up 0.06″ of rain today, but locations below the hill in Duluth and Superior saw little to no rain today. 2020 is still running -5.84″ below normal precipitation in Duluth, this kind of deficit won’t be erased in a day, it’s going to take a few weeks of a wet weather pattern to get rid of this deficit, unfortunately we may have to wait until fall for that to happen.

Thanks for reading!
