Labor Day Weekend Forecast

The weather doesn’t look too bad in northeast Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin for the Labor Day holiday weekend.

There are chances for a few showers and patchy drizzle tonight, and again Saturday and Sunday (mainly in the afternoon/early evening) but coverage of the rain looks fairly isolated to widely scattered, and if you do happen to get a shower this weekend, it shouldn’t rain for more than a few minutes. Will also see some sunshine return to the Northland Saturday and Sunday after a few days of overcast skies.

As for temperatures — We’re looking at daytime highs mainly in the 70s for Saturday, 60s to lower 70s Sunday, and mainly in the 70s for Labor Day (Monday) Normal highs from September 4-6 range from around 70 to 75 degrees in the Northland.

18z NAM 3km model simulated radar forecast valid from 7 PM Friday to 7 PM Sunday.

A mid/upper level low and trough will dig S-SE across western Ontario and into the upper Great Lakes this weekend with some colder mid level temps moving into the Northland as this upper trough approaches, this combined with warmer temps near the surface will lead to a bit of instability in the atmosphere especially on Saturday, and this is when we could see a few isolated thunderstorms in our area Saturday afternoon-early evening.

High temperature forecast for Saturday through Monday, September 4-6, 2021.
