Areas of rain will continue late this afternoon over parts of northwest Wisconsin, south and east of the Twin Ports, but this rain will end from W-E this evening. The rest of tonight into Wednesday morning will be quiet and comfortable across the Northland with patchy fog possible.
The last of the rain will be moving out of the tip of the Minnesota Arrowhead and eastern portions of northwest Wisconsin over the next 1-2 hours, skies are clearing farther west, and that trend should shift farther east through sunset.
Warmer temperatures return for Wednesday with highs in the middle 70s to middle 80s. Partly to mostly sunny skies are forecast, and there could be a few afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms in northern Minnesota, but severe weather is not expected on Wednesday.
18z HRRR model simulated radar forecast from 4 PM Tuesday to 11 PM Wednesday.
Another round of needed rainfall across the Northland last night, and more rain has been falling today, especially over parts of northwestern Wisconsin.
