Minnesota TV Station Captures Cool Time-Lapse Video of Morning Storm
It's been a wet and stormy week across the Northland and as everyone hopes our hot summer days aren't completely over, the storms do provide some incredible visuals.
One such visual was captured by our media partners at WDIO-TV. As storms rolled into the Twin Ports near sunrise Thursday morning, their Tower Cam was there to catch it all.
The video footage is even more impressive once you view it below in the time-lapse format. WDIO-TV WDIO shared the video Thursday on their Facebook page
Of course, storms such as this do cause problems, including the potential for localized flash flooding across the Northland.
Unfortunately, it appears that chances for rain remain in our forecast into the weekend, before we see a little stretch of mostly sunny skies beginning Sunday.
Here is the current forecast, courtesy of WDIO Chief Meteorologist Justin Liles:
- FRIDAY: Another rainy day with patchy fog before 11am. Otherwise, mostly cloudy, with a high near 70. East wind 5 to 10 mph.
- SATURDAY: A 50 percent chance of showers. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 67. Northeast wind 5 to 10 mph, with gusts as high as 20 mph.
- SUNDAY: Mostly sunny, with a high near 73. North wind around 5 mph.
- MONDAY: Sunny, with a high near 76. West wind around 5 mph becoming northeast in the afternoon.
- TUESDAY: Mostly sunny, with a high near 73. East wind 5 to 10 mph.
- WEDNESDAY: A slight chance of showers. Mostly sunny, with a high near 71. West wind 5 to 10 mph becoming east in the afternoon.
I don't know about you, but I'm not quite ready to turn the page on summer. Our calendars say the first day of fall isn't until September 22, so would it be too much to ask for one more stretch of hot weather before we're all buried in pumpkin spice?
