Weather Synopsis for northeast Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin

Skies were mostly cloudy most of the day in northwest Wisconsin while partly to mostly sunny skies were found across northern Minnesota.  Last night's snow maker has moved into the eastern Great Lakes this afternoon while high pressure builds into the upper Midwest.  Highs today ranged from the mid 40s to low 50s.

Clear to partly cloudy skies for tonight with patchy fog possible in parts of northwest Wisconsin.  Lows will mainly be in the 20s to lower 30s.

High pressure over the upper Midwest this evening will head into the Ohio Valley Wednesday while a low pressure disturbance drops E/SE out of the northern Plains -- Most of the rain associated with this disturbance is forecast to remain over far southern portions of the Northland and points south from late Wednesday afternoon through Thursday morning.

Highs Wednesday will be in the 50s with a few spots getting into the low 60s but it will be cooler especially along the North Shore of Lake Superior.

The next opportunity for some rain will come Friday evening into Saturday as low pressure along with its warm front and cold front move through the upper Midwest.
