July 28—It was actually hotter the farther north you were in Minnesota on Monday, with Ely and Orr topping the thermometer at 90 muggy degrees and the usual hotspots in southern Minnesota only in the 80s.

Duluth officially hit 86 degrees Monday, short of the record 94 degrees but well above the average of 78, according to the National Weather Service in Duluth.

It was the second-straight day with temperatures well into the 90s across parts of the Northland after Scanlon took top honors with 95 degrees on Sunday when Duluth officially hit 89. It’s been warmer than normal for 12 straight days in Duluth.

The Weather Service says there’s a good chance of rain and storms early Tuesday across the region with temperatures expected to peak around 80, but it may still feel muggy with so much moisture in the air.

A cool change is coming for Wednesday with highs only in the mid-70s across the region and very gusty winds out of the west bringing relief.

The forecast for the rest of the week calls for mostly sunny skies and highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s, not far off the seasonal normal.
