Milder temps on the way the next few days but cooler at times near Lake Superior; few showers possible Thursday and this weekend

  • Northeast winds will continue on Wednesday, but wind speeds look quite a bit lighter compared to what we’ve seen the last few days, end result from this should be for highs to climb into the 40s to around 50 degrees near Lake Superior on Wednesday while further inland highs will range from the lower 50s to around 60 degrees, with some middle 60s possible across northern Minnesota.
  • Some clearing is also expected on Wednesday with at least partially sunny skies expected across the entire Northland.
  • A few showers are possible Thursday as a cold front moves SE across the area. A wind shift to the NW will occur with the passage of a cold front on Thursday, so temps will warm into the 50s to around 60 degrees near Lake Superior on Thursday thanks to an offshore wind direction, while temperatures inland also top out in the 50s to lower 60s on Thursday.
  • East wind returns Friday and looks to continue through this weekend, so although temperatures away from Lake Superior will be nice Saturday and Sunday, ranging from the mid 60s to mid 70s in northeast Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin, locations near Lake Superior will be a lot cooler with highs both Saturday and Sunday generally in the 40s.
  • There could also be a few showers around the area Saturday and Sunday, but no widespread or persistent rains are expected this weekend the way it looks now.
