- Near-critical fire weather conditions are expected again on Sunday for parts of northeast Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin due to dry relative humidity and breezy northwest winds.

- A low pressure system will bring several days of rain, light mixed precipitation, and gusty winds for most of this upcoming week.

Dry, breezy, and warm weather is happening this afternoon for much of the region, with the exception of clouds and scattered showers around and north of the Iron Range and into the Arrowhead as a weak wave passes through. Near critical fire weather conditions will persist mainly in east-central Minnesota through this afternoon due to the dry relative humidity and gusty southerly winds. As we head into the late afternoon and evening, weak synoptic lift will combine with a few hundred J/kg of SBCAPE to produce a ~15% chance for storms in northwest Wisconsin. The dry air should suppress most convection from developing, but an isolated cell or two could produce some brief heavy rain and gusty winds. Severe weather is not expected. Any showers/storms are expected to end this evening with quiet weather the rest of the night.

A weak cold front passing through tonight will bring a wind shift to northwesterly on Sunday. The weather will once again be dry, and with relative humidity expected to drop down to around 20 to 30 percent, near critical fire weather conditions are expected again with breezy northwest winds. The driest conditions are expected approximately along and south of the US 2 corridor in northeast Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin.
Outside of that, mostly sunny skies are expected with balmy temperatures in the 60s to around 70 for most places (cooler in the Arrowhead).

Once we go into Monday, we will return to a warm air advection pattern with ridging aloft. Ahead of a large low pressure system that is expected to bring widespread rain and wind to the area on Tuesday, some scattered showers may develop on Monday out ahead of the northward-moving warm front. With dry air likely to persist near the surface, total rain on Monday is expected to be less than a tenth of an inch for most places.

On Tuesday, the Colorado low will move northeast and start to occlude. Warm and moist Gulf of Mexico air will move into the region ahead of the low, and widespread rain is expected to move in on Tuesday (especially during the afternoon from south to north). The pressure gradient is expected to tighten as the low moves closer, and gusty east/northeast winds are expected to accompany the rain as it moves through Tuesday into Wednesday.
Gusts to around 30 to 40 mph are expected, and some guidance suggests locally higher gusts could be possible. As for rainfall amounts, the forecast remains largely on track with most areas receiving around an inch of rain and locally higher amounts around 2" or slightly higher expected. Convective potential still remains very low, but a few embedded rumbles of thunder within the mostly steady rain can't be ruled out. All-in-all, we can expect a rainy and windy Tuesday and Wednesday with rainfall accumulations that will be largely beneficial for the persistent drought conditions. Some localized ponding of water may be possible in the areas that receive the heaviest rain, but overall rainfall rates at this time are not expected to be supportive for much in the way of flooding except perhaps some patchy and minor nuisance flooding.

Strong cold air advection and wraparound moisture moves in for Thursday, and this is where we will likely see some snow start to mix in with the rain. Overall precipitation rates are expected to drop off quite a bit, so only light rain/snow are expected Thursday into Friday. There's more uncertainty in terms of how cold it will actually get and thus precipitation type and accumulations. Most model ensembles suggest light snowfall amounts, if any at all as temperatures wobble back and forth around freezing. There are a few members that suggest a few inches of snow, and while such solutions do not appear likely at this time, it's important to note that this is still several days out and the forecast could change. With that all said, expect lingering mixed precipitation to end the week with some potential for light snow accumulations.

VFR conditions through the TAF period. Mid-level clouds are over a large portion of the area early this morning, with a few sprinkles possible around INL over the next few hours. Northwest winds will become gusty later this morning and remain breezy until easing this evening. Diurnal cumulus is likely to develop over the Arrowhead late this afternoon, but cig heights will remain VFR.

Issued at 342 PM CDT Sat Apr 13 2024

Breezy northeast winds will continue around the head of the lake through this evening, leading to wind gusts to around 20 knots and waves as high as 4 feet. A Small Craft Advisory remains in effect through this evening. Winds will become lighter and switch to southwesterly Sunday morning, then variable to northwesterly Sunday night. As low pressure and rain approach the region starting on Monday, winds will become breezy from the northeast late Monday into Monday evening and will continue strengthening into Tuesday. Wind gusts from 20 to 30 knots will develop Monday night, then gales will become possible going into Tuesday.
