Much of the Northland will be dry today but there may be a few afternoon showers/storms from the Siren area west/northwest to Aitkin, the Brainerd Lakes, and Walker areas. The chance for showers and storms will expand to much of the Northland tonight and a few strong storms could occur with brief heavy rain, small hail, lightning, and gusty winds the main threats. Expect highs today in the lower eighties, but it will become cooler in the afternoon near Lake Superior.
Our first Slight risk of severe weather of the season is expected for Thursday night and Friday morning, particularly west of an International Falls to Brainerd line. This area could see scattered severe thunderstorms, capable of large hail and damaging winds. An isolated severe thunderstorm will be possible east of this line, including most of the Minnesota Arrowhead, the Twin Ports, and the Hinckley, MN and Siren, WI areas.
