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

.DAY ONE...This afternoon and Tonight

Patchy fog is expected around Lake Superior this afternoon and
may expand farther inland tonight. Fog may be locally dense at
times. A Dense Fog Advisory may be needed again tonight.

Isolated to scattered thunderstorms are expected through this
evening, primarily over the Minnesota Arrowhead and across
Northwest Wisconsin. Severe storms are not expected. Locally heavy
rainfall is possible, which may lead to minor flooding of low-
lying spots.

Strong northeast winds over Lake Superior will create waves of 2
to 3 feet and lead to a high rip current risk along Park Point and
Wisconsin Point beaches this afternoon.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

Fog, locally dense in spots, will linger Tuesday morning.

Scattered storms are expected through the day Tuesday into
Tuesday night. A few storms may be strong with hail to penny-size,
frequent cloud-to-ground lightning, wind gusts to 40 mph, and
brief heavy rainfall.

There will be additional chances for thunderstorms off and on
through the week. Severe weather is not anticipated at this time.


Skywarn spotters are encouraged to report hail of any size and
rainfall amounts to the National Weather Service.
