Staff at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center are pushing back their scheduled “Fourth Fest” at Bayfront Festival Park to Friday, July 8. Meanwhile, Superior city administrators have postponed the remainder of their downtown celebration to an as-yet-unannounced date.

Staff at the National Weather Service’s office in Duluth predict light to moderate rain will move across the area Monday afternoon, including isolated or scattered showers and thunderstorms between 4 pm and 7 pm, according to Meteorologist Ketzel Levens. The chances of rain drop to about 50% between 7 and 9 pm before falling dramatically after that.

Even if it’s not raining, though, Levens said, weather service staff still predict a foggy, windy evening.
