Pleasant weather into midweek; turning warmer and more humid by the end of the week

Temperatures will be running slightly cooler than normal across northeast Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin into midweek, but really nothing out of the ordinary around here for early August. Note: Normal highs in the Northland from August 3rd to August 8th are in the mid to upper 70s while normal lows are in the low to mid 50s. Temperatures into midweek should feature highs in the mid 60s to mid 70s with lows in the 40s and 50s. Warmer temps and more humid weather is possible by late this week.

A warmer weather pattern could be on the way for next week as upper level winds change from NW this week to west or southwest next week.

Widespread stratocumulus clouds moving south across the region today as an upper level trough and cool northerly flow aloft covered the upper Midwest and Western Great Lakes today. Some clouds will likely stick around on Monday and Tuesday, along with a chance for an isolated shower especially around Lake Superior tonight and Monday.

Looks like we could see a pattern change develop later this week allowing for more humid conditions to work into the Northland by late week with potential for 60 to 70 degree dew point temperatures around August 7th-9th.
