TONIGHT: More clear skies will continue tonight thanks to high pressure staying over the Midwest. It’ll be perfect weather to see the first of two lunar eclipses tonight. The lunar eclipse will begin around 8:30 P.M. Sunday night and max around 11:11 P.M. The eclipse will end around 2:00 A.M. Monday morning. Temperatures will cool down to the lower 40s and upper 30s with breezy west-northwest winds between 10-20 mph. An early evening shower could develop, but once the sunsets the clouds and rain will dissipate.

MONDAY: High pressure will keep Monday dry and mostly sunny. A few scattered clouds are possible throughout the day, but it’ll remain mostly sunny. Temperatures will continue to be cooler due to northwest winds bringing cool, dry air from Canada. Winds will still be breezy from the northwest between 10-20 mph gusting up to 30 mph. Due to dry air, low humidity, and breezy northwest winds, the majority of the Northland especially in Wisconsin and UP are still under near critical fire levels. Temperatures will only reach the upper 50s and lower 60s then fall down to the upper 30s and lower 40s Monday night.

TUESDAY: High pressure from the north and south will keep the Northland mostly sunny to partly cloudy on Tuesday. Another system will develop over the lee of the Rockies creating showers and storms across the central Plains. Fortunately, high pressure will keep the system from reaching the Northland so no rain is expected on Tuesday. Temperatures will continue to be on the cooler side in the mid to upper 50s and lower 60s. Winds will coming in off the lake so areas along the north shore and Duluth will be cool.

The lunar eclipse will begin around 8:30 P.M. and come to peak around 11:11 P.M. Sunday night.
