Weather Summary for Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin
Date:  July 31, 2015

A mild and breezy day in the Northland with scattered showers and thunderstorms moving from NW-SE through parts of Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin today.  Most of these storms were on the weak side with brief heavy downpours and occasional lightning being the main hazards from them, but there have been a few stronger storms with a potential for some hail and gusty winds this afternoon.  High temperatures today were in the 70s to lower 80s with a 3rd day in a row with a gusty wind out of the west or northwest at 10-25 mph with gusts over 30 mph.

Forecast Discussion for Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin

Short Term Forecast - Confidence:  High.

Tonight (July 31)

Scattered showers and thunderstorms in parts of the area will come to an end before Midnight.  Main threats from this activity will be from lightning and heavy downpours with small hail and gusty winds also possible.  Partly to mostly cloudy skies are expected tonight with lows in the 50s to lower 60s.  Winds will be out of the west at 10 to 20 mph with higher gusts during the evening hours.

Saturday and Saturday Night (August 1)

August will open on a mild note as high temperatures climb into the 70s and 80s under a partly to mostly sunny sky.  Lows Saturday Night will be in the 50s and 60s.

A low pressure system moving southeast out of the Northern Plains could bring some showers or thunderstorms to parts of the Northland especially from late Saturday afternoon through Saturday night.

Note:  Not expecting any severe weather at the moment as those chances will be confined to areas along and south of the Interstate 94 corridor in Central and Southern Minnesota.  However, with 30-40 knots of wind shear and strong mid level winds in place if we can get enough instability and moisture to build into our area, then we could be dealing with a few strong to severe thunderstorms during the late afternoon-evening hours on Saturday.

Extended Forecast - Confidence:  High.

Sunday through Tuesday (August 2-4)

A few showers or thunderstorms could linger on Sunday as low pressure exits to our southeast.  Mainly dry for Monday and Tuesday.  High temperatures on Sunday are forecast to be in the 70s and 80s with highs Monday and Tuesday in the 60s and 70s.  Lows Sunday night and Monday night will mainly be in the 50s.

Long Range Forecast - Confidence:  High.

(August 5-10)

Near to below average temperatures are forecast from the 5th-10th.  Could be dealing with a few showers or thunderstorms sometime during the 8th-10th time frame the way it looks now.

5 DAY FORECAST FOR DULUTH AND SUPERIOR

.Tonight...  Breezy especially during the evening.  Partly to mostly cloudy.  Low 55 to 60.  Wind west at 10 to 20 mph with gusts to 30 mph this evening.

Weather Summary for Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin
Date:  July 30, 2015

A breezy but mild day with high temperatures in the mid 70s to low 80s.  Cold temperatures aloft combined with the warm air near the surface made the atmosphere a tad unstable today with CAPE of 500-1500 j/kg, this along with a NW flow aloft and an upper level disturbance dropping SE across the area resulted in the development of a few showers and thunderstorms today in parts of Northeast Minnesota and far Northern Wisconsin.  A few of these storms were on the strong side this afternoon with a couple reports of sub-severe hail.  Winds were out of the west or northwest at 10 to 20 mph with higher gusts.

Forecast Discussion for Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin

Short Term Forecast - Confidence:  High.

Tonight through Friday night (July 30-31)

A few showers or thunderstorms are possible at times through late tomorrow afternoon mainly over far Northern and far Northeast Minnesota.  Low temperatures tonight and Friday night will be in the 50s and 60s with highs on Friday in the 70s and lower 80s.  West, northwest, or southwest winds will prevail through Friday night at 10 to 20 mph.

Extended Forecast - Confidence:  Medium to High.

Saturday through Monday (August 1-3)

Saturday looks pleasant with high temperatures in the 70s and 80s with lows in the 50s and 60s.  A low pressure system approaches from the west-northwest on Sunday, this system could bring some showers or thunderstorms to the Northland late this weekend with dry weather returning on Monday the way it looks now.  Highs on Sunday will be in the 70s and 80s with lows Sunday night in the 50s and 60s.  Highs on Monday will be in the 70s.

July 29, 2015 Weather Report - Breezy and mild on Thursday with spotty showers/t-storms possible

/Issued 8:05 PM CDT, Wednesday, July 29, 2015/

Water vapor satellite image and surface analysis from this evening - see image below.  Source, college of dupage website.

A strong surface and upper level low over Northern Ontario this evening, this system won't be moving much through early next week.  The flow behind this storm will be coming from the west or northwest so temperatures will remain on the mild side but with much lower humidity levels compared to previous days.  Also embedded within this flow and rotating around that Ontario low will be some upper level disturbances and cold fronts...As those features move through they could trigger a few showers or thunderstorms Thursday and Friday, and possibly again on Sunday.

Weather Summary for Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin
Date:  July 29, 2015

Deep low pressure of 992mb was over Northern Ontario today with high pressure averaging 1020mb centered over the Western High Plains.  The pressure difference between the low and high resulted in strong west winds over the Northland today -- Wind speeds of 15 to 25 mph were common with wind gusts of 35-45+ mph.  A much drier airmass moved in today behind this storm with dew points generally in the low to mid 50s versus the 65-75 degree dew points we had on Tuesday.  Sky conditions varied from overcast in Northern Minnesota to partly-mostly sunny in Southern areas today with high temperatures mainly in the 70s.

Forecast Discussion for Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin

Short Term Forecast - Confidence:  High.

Tonight (July 29)

Partly to mostly cloudy skies will continue over the Northland as a weak cold front drops south into the area.  A few sprinkles or showers are possible this evening in far Northern Minnesota.  Low temperatures will be in the 50s and 60s with west winds at 10 to 20 mph.

Thursday and Thursday Night (July 30)

There is a risk for a few spotty showers or weak thunderstorms during this period as colder temperatures aloft combine with warmer surface temps to make the atmosphere weakly unstable with CAPE generally less than 500 j/kg, will also have a strong WNW mid/upper level flow in place with a disturbance or two possibly passing through the Upper Midwest...All of these factors could go on to produce isolated convection in the Northland on Thursday but nothing widespread or severe is expected.  High temperatures on Thursday will be in the 70s and 80s with lows Thursday night in the 50s and 60s.  Winds will be out of the west at 10 to 20 mph with higher gusts.

Extended Forecast - Confidence:  High.

Friday through Sunday (July 31-August 2)

A few spotty showers or thunderstorms are possible on Friday; Saturday looks mainly dry at this time; Sunday could hold a scattered shower/thunderstorm threat.

The overall weather pattern remains the same over the weekend with an upper low centered to our NE resulting in a WNW flow in the mid/upper levels of the atmosphere -- Embedded within this flow will be a few disturbances/cold fronts which will drop southeast across the Northern Plains and Upper Midwest.

High temperatures from Friday through Sunday are expected to be in the 70s and 80s with lows Friday night and Saturday night in the 50s and 60s.

Long Range Forecast - Confidence:  Medium to High.

(August 3-8)

Near to below average temperatures are forecast from the 3rd-8th.  Nothing really standing out in the computer models in terms of organized rainfall/thunderstorm activity in our local area during the long range,  but things could change.

5 DAY FORECAST FOR DULUTH AND SUPERIOR

.Tonight...  Partly cloudy.  Breezy.  Low 57 to 62.  Wind west at 10 to 20 mph with gusts to 25 mph.

July 28, 2015 Weather Report - Gusty southwest winds through Wednesday Night; Mild but less humid on Wednesday; Risk for a few showers/t-storms this evening

/Issued 4:37 PM CDT, Tuesday, July 28, 2015/

Enhanced Infrared satellite loop from 3:30 am this morning through 3:30 pm this afternoon.  Source, unisys weather.

A large MCS (Mesoscale Convective System) moved east out of the Dakotas and through Minnesota, Iowa, and Wisconsin earlier today with widespread rain and thunderstorms.  Lingering cloud cover behind this MCS has really diminished the chances for additional thunderstorm development in the Northland tonight, although it is possible that we see a few storms develop after 6-7 PM especially over Lake Superior down into Northwest Wisconsin.

















Wind will be up through Wednesday night.  The image below is the 925mb wind forecast valid at 7 AM Wednesday per 18z RAP model.  Widespread 30-45 knot winds at 925mb, some of this should be able to mix down to the surface with wind gusts possibly greater than 30 mph in parts of the Northern Plains and Upper Midwest.  Source, college of dupage website.
















Water vapor satellite imagery; surface analysis from 1:45 PM today.  A strong low for late July with a pressure of 991-992mb over Southeast Saskatchewan.  A rather classic looking storm with the dry slot (Brown lines on the map) surging E/NE into Western Minnesota.  Cold front is the blue line on the map which is moving east.  Green lines represent rain that is wrapping around this deep cyclone today.  Source, college of dupage website.
















Weather Summary for Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin
Date:  July 28, 2015

Some parts of the area saw some rain and a few thunderstorms earlier in the day which was followed by partly sunny to mostly cloudy skies this afternoon.  High temperatures were in the upper 70s to mid 80s with muggy conditions continuing with late day dew points in the mid 60s to low 70s.  Winds today were out of the south or southwest at 10 to 20 mph with higher gusts.

Forecast Discussion for Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin

Short Term Forecast - Confidence:  High.

Tonight through Wednesday night (July 28-29)

The main weather headline will be the wind.  Deep low pressure of 987-992mb will move from Southern Manitoba to over Hudson Bay through this period.  A cold front connected to this low will sweep through the Northland this evening.

It's taking quite a while for the atmosphere to destabilize today thanks to the lingering clouds left over from the early morning convection.  It now appears that CAPE values will only get into the 500-1500 j/kg range this evening with -2 to -4C lifted indices.  A cap has also moved in as evidence by the +12C 700mb temperatures per 21z meso-analysis.  So there is a lot working against thunderstorm development this evening, but still can't rule out a few storms since this is a fairly strong storm system.  If storms do develop they will have about 30 knots of deep layer shear to work with, not overly strong and when combined with a generally marginally unstable atmosphere the potential for severe weather would appear to be very limited.

A few showers could affect far Northern Minnesota on Wednesday otherwise it looks dry tomorrow and tomorrow night.

Partly to mostly cloudy skies are expected this period with low temperatures tonight and Wednesday night in the 50s and 60s with highs on Wednesday ranging from the 60s in far Northern Minnesota with 70s and a few lower 80s in East Central Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin.  As mentioned above the wind will be a factor through Wednesday night with southwest winds at 10-25 mph with gusts over 30 mph.

Extended Forecast - Confidence:  High.

Thursday through Saturday (July 30-August 1)

A few spotty showers or thunderstorms are possible from Thursday through Saturday otherwise it looks less humid with mild temperatures continuing as a WNW flow aloft sets up across the region.  High temperatures on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday are expected to be in the 70s and 80s with lows Thursday night and Friday night in the 50s and 60s.

Long Range Forecast - Confidence:  High.

(August 2-7)

A risk for a few showers or thunderstorms continues on Sunday (2nd) outside of that the long range is looking pretty dry around this area.  Near to below average temperatures are expected from the 2nd-7th.

5 DAY FORECAST FOR DULUTH AND SUPERIOR

.Tonight...  Breezy.  Muggy during the evening.  Isolated showers or thunderstorms possible before 10 PM.  Partly to mostly cloudy.  Low 58 to 63.  Wind southwest at 15 to 25 mph.

.Wednesday...  Windy and less humid.  Partly to mostly sunny.  High 77 to 82.  Wind southwest at 15 to 30 mph.

.Wednesday Night...  Breezy.  Partly cloudy.  Low 57 to 62.  Wind west at 15 to 25 mph.

July 27, 2015 Weather Report - Warm and humid weather continues through Tuesday with a risk for showers and thunderstorms (A few storms could become strong to severe) Less humid by midweek

/Issued 7:42 PM CDT, Monday, July 27, 2015/

Early evening water vapor satellite imagery.  Source, college of dupage website.

A strong late July storm churning northeast through the Northern Rockies tonight.  The black line on the map represents the forecasted storm track through late Tuesday Night.  The brown line is the general position of the mid/upper level trough.  Yellow line is the 12 degree Celsius 700mb temperature contour which will be moving northeast through Tuesday, a +12c 700mb temperature is usually too warm for thunderstorm development and this cap will move overhead during the afternoon-evening hours on Tuesday so it's up in the air whether or not we see much in the way of thunderstorm activity in the Northland after early Tuesday afternoon.

Weather Summary for Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin
Date:  July 27, 2015

Another very warm and humid day in the Northland under partly to mostly sunny skies.  High temperatures ranged from the mid 80s to near 90 degrees with dew points ranging from the mid 50s to mid 60s with even some upper 60s showing up at times around the Brainerd Lakes region.  There was a lake breeze today near Lake Superior which helped to keep temperatures in the mid 70s and low 80s.  Winds today were out of the south or southeast at 10 to 20 mph.  Surface map as of 5 PM today had high pressure of 1014-1016mb covering the Great Lakes while a strong area of low pressure averaging 998mb was centered over the Northern Rockies.

Forecast Discussion for Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin

Short Term Forecast - Confidence:  Medium to High.

Tonight (July 27)

High pressure will be centered to our east while low pressure heads into the Northern Plains.  A warm front attached to this low will be lifting northeast into the Central Minnesota by daybreak.  Partly to mostly cloudy skies are expected tonight with low temperatures in the 60s and 70s.  Winds will be out of the south or southeast at 10 to 20 mph.  We should see some showers and thunderstorms develop or spread into the Northland from the west/southwest during the Overnight hours.  Isolated strong to severe thunderstorms are possible early Tuesday morning mainly over Western-Southwest sections of the area -- Damaging wind gusts and hail along with heavy rain and lightning will be the main threats.  

Tuesday and Tuesday Night (July 28)

An area of low pressure is forecast to deepen to around 990mb during this period as it lifts northeast out of the Northern Plains to the Manitoba-Ontario line by Wednesday Morning.  A warm front and cold front attached to this low will be passing through the Northland Tomorrow and Tomorrow night.  Forcing and lift provided by the warm front and cold front should lead to a few rounds of scattered showers and thunderstorms in our area during this period.  Temperatures aloft will be warming, however, with 700mb temperatures rising to around +12C during the afternoon-evening hours, this could keep thunderstorms from developing especially after Tuesday morning-early afternoon.

If storms are able to develop then they could become strong or severe as we should have a fairly unstable atmosphere in place with CAPE of 1500-2500 j/kg (Possibly higher) Lifted indices of -3 to -8C.  Note:  One thing I'm not liking is the fact that the stronger mid level winds of around 40-50 knots will remain west of the axis of greatest instability while a 60-80 knot mid level wind maximum moves east toward the Red River Valley, in our local area it appears that 500mb winds will be in the 25-35 knot range which is somewhat marginal for severe weather.  The low level jet will be up though ranging from around 35-45 knots, but this low level jet will also help to push a warm bubble of air aloft into our area from the SW (CAP)  In closing there's still quite a bit of uncertainty as to what may happen around our area on Tuesday.

High temperatures tomorrow will be in the 70s and 80s with lows tomorrow night in the 50s and 60s.  Winds will be out of the south or southeast on Tuesday at 10 to 20 mph with winds turning to the southwest at 10 to 25 mph Tuesday night.

Extended Forecast - Confidence:  High.

Wednesday through Friday (July 29-31)

Looks mainly dry from mid to late week.  Less humid but still on the mild side with high temperatures in the 70s to around 80 degrees on Wednesday with 60s in far Northern Minnesota.  Highs on Thursday and Friday are forecast to be in the 70s and 80s.  Lows Wednesday night and Thursday night should be in the 50s and 60s.

Long Range Forecast - Confidence:  High.

(August 1-6)

A few showers or thunderstorms are possible this weekend (1st-2nd) The rest of the long range looks mainly dry at this time.  Near average temperatures for the most part although we could have above average temperatures on the 1st.

5 DAY FORECAST FOR DULUTH AND SUPERIOR

.Tonight...  Partly cloudy.  Low 65 to 70 but it could be a little cooler closer to Lake Superior.  Wind south to southeast at 10 to 20 mph.
