Hot temps and chance of thunderstorms this weekend


Summer may not be officially here, but it won’t seem that way this weekend as temperatures are expected to flirt with 90 degrees.

It may be the perfect time to apply the sunscreen and head to the lake to cool off. But the weather forecast also includes a chance for strong, even severe thunderstorms.

The National Weather Service (NWS) in Duluth issued a hazardous weather outlook for Cass, Crow Wing and Aitkin counties.
