Another very nice day is ahead for Thursday with high temperatures in the Northland ranging from the upper 60s to lower 70s which is roughly 5 degrees or so above normal for late September.


18z NAM model 500mb vorticity forecast valid from 7 AM Friday to 7 AM Saturday – A late week system will impact the Northland, and it looks pretty potent (dynamically speaking) with even hints of a closed upper level low developing once this system gets east of our area, but it will be lacking deep moisture, thus only a few showers are anticipated the way it looks now.

A cold front and strong upper level low will move across the Northland on Friday, and this front and upper low could bring a few showers as it crosses the area, but widespread significant rains are not expected with this system.

18z NAM 3km model simulated radar forecast valid from 1 AM Friday to 1 AM Saturday.
