Saturday Weather

Recommended Posts

What are the local weather people saying about the weather up in Duluth for tomorrow? I can't seem to find 2 weather sources that will agree on a forecast. I have seen as big as a 15 degree tempeture difference and some people saying rain all day and some saying no rain at all.

Just wondering what the local word is before I decide to drive up from St. Paul for a day on the water. I will be bringing my wife and 2 other couples with me so I am trying to make sure the weather is decent for them. If it was just me i would fish in a monsoon and it wouldn't be an issue but I don't want a cranky wife and neither do my friends that I am bringing.

Just go here here and realize that the temperatures can swing pretty strongly depending on whether you're up over the hill (like this forecast for the airport) or down at lakeside. If there's some form of a northeast or east wind, the very cold Lake Superior will chill the air above it, and winds from those directions pull that cold air into the low portions of the city. When that happens, the escarpment usually protects the parts of the city up over the hill, so it's warmer there.

Thanks,

That is yet another forecast that doesn't match up with any other I have seen, its getting closer though.

I have seen anywhere from 56-70 degrees forecasted for the Duluth Airport so far between the 6 sources I have checked.

Aaron, did you get my email?

We haven't had much rain and every time rain is in the forecast it hasn't happened. Temps will be in the 60's with a good breeze, perfect for fishing but not so good for swimming. I'd go ahead with your plans.

yeah I got it. Info was very helpful as always. I meant to reply but hadn't had time to go back to it.

I think we are going to go ahead with the plans and we'll deal with whatever comes our way. All of my best days of fishing on Fish Lake have always come in these sort of conditions so I am looking forward to seeing if I can get into a few fish.

I took a group of friends up 1 or 2 summers ago for a weekend and it poured the entire weekend and despite all of my instructions before we left only 2 out of 8 people brought rain gear, and I was one of them. It made for a long weekend of people complaining. I have warned people if they do that again I am going to leave them on an island for the day and I'll come pick them up before I head in for the night.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
