This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of northeast
Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin.

.DAY ONE...This afternoon and Tonight

Rip currents will be possible along the beaches of Duluth and
Superior this afternoon and early evening, as northeast winds of
25 to 30 mph have caused waves to build to 6 to 9 feet. A Beach

Thunderstorms will continue this afternoon, lingering through
tonight. Large hail and gusty winds will be possible with the
strongest storms. There is also a slight chance of excessive
rainfall from the Brainerd Lakes north and east to the
International Border and the Arrowhead late this afternoon and
tonight, so heavy rainfall will also be possible.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Chances of thunderstorms will continue into early Saturday
morning, and are expected again Saturday afternoon and evening.
Small hail, frequent cloud-to-ground lightning, gusty winds, and
heavy rainfall are the main threats.

Thunderstorms will be possible once again each day from Tuesday through


Skywarn Spotter activation is not anticipated this afternoon or
tonight, but any reports of hail of any size and rainfall
amounts will be appreciated.
