      FinnFest forecast

      What a warm and mostly sunny Father's Day to enjoy outside. It's a busy week with the holiday, not to mention FinnFest and Friday being the first day of Summer.

      Sunday will be a nice day, but rain is on the way for later.

      Sunday's highs will mainly be in the upper 70s but can easily exceed 80 in several locations, especially south. It will likely remain in the upper 60s near Lake Superior. Rain and clouds will move in with a weak cold front from the north later in the afternoon and evening. Rain showers should mostly be light. A thunderstorm is not impossible, but pretty unlikely.

      Sunday night will see the most rain. Scattered showers should persist overnight and into parts of Monday. Lows will be in the upper 40s north to low 50s south. Winds will be much calmer behind the front.

      Monday's rain will be mainly south as it moves away. Skies should become mostly sunny by late afternoon. Under a north wind, it will be much cooler with highs in the upper 50s north to 60s south. A lot of the highs will depend on how quickly the clouds clear away under high pressure. Earlier sunshine means warmer afternoon highs.

      Monday night will be clear, calm, and cool. Lows will drop into the 40s or possibly 30s inland.

      For the extended forecast...Tuesday will also be mostly sunny and a bit warmer. Wednesday will be the start of a warming trend. Wednesday through next weekend will see highs well into the 70s or even over 80. There is, however, a chance for rain each day from Wednesday through Sunday.

      For FinnFest, the rain is looking light for Wednesday and Thursday, but Friday and Saturday may be pretty stormy with an incoming low pressure system. This is still several days away, so it is subject to significant change, but we will be keeping a close eye on it as it approaches.

      Friday is the Summer Solstice. It should feel pretty summer-like with warm temps. It is also the longest day of the year with about 16 hours of sunlight.
