Dry and mild thru Friday; few showers Saturday; cooler weather next week

More nice summer weather is on the way across the Northland for Thursday and Friday with highs in the 70s to lower 80s on Thursday, and from the upper 70s to middle 80s Friday.

A cold front moves SE across the area Friday night into Saturday bringing a few showers with it. Isolated thunderstorms are possible as well with some marginal instability developing along and ahead of a cold front.

The greatest chance for a few showers or an isolated thunderstorm Friday afternoon or Friday night looks to be mainly west of a line from Crane Lake to Longville with dry weather expected anywhere south/east of that line for Friday and Friday night.

Note: Best chance for a few showers in Duluth will be on Saturday the way it looks now.
