Sounds like the BWCA is in direct path of a heavy storm. If you have a way to alert anyone, maybe send a message ASAP!

I saw that. Looks like a bad one. I hope I'm wrong.
 
07/15/2019 03:44PM
Yeah just saw that on radar. Hopefully not as bad as it looks. Thoughts with all you brothers and sisters in the BW right now.

It looks like wind gusts up in the mid 50 mph for parts or the BW. Worse in the Q up to mid 60's. Heavy rain and possible hail.

My friend noted the hot night last night, and this morning, and pulled out this morning ahead of the storm.

Good call. She sent me a screenshot of the radar and it looked nasty. They have a cabin nearby so not all is lost. Better to be safe than sorry.

Could be another rocky day. I see another storm heading my way and aiming for canoe country... hopefully it’ll stay a little south. Sorry Karen... haha.

Yep, tornado warning for Quetico. Hope my son's group is safe tonight.

Likelihood of strong/severe storms for much of the BwcaW later today is high. As of this writing large hail ( up to 2" diameter) and wind 60+ mph seems to be the greatest threat of severe weather though an isolated tornado is possible.

Would not be surprised if there is 80+ mph winds with this system as it is "bowing" out --- similar to the 99' event though not as widespread and hopefully not as strong but right now on dual-pol radar winds are easily 70 mph...

That's not good.

I think I drove through some of that. Heavy hail cracked my windshield... was not a long storm but wow it came fast and hard. Was driving towards Hibbing from Eveleth on Hwy 37.

I can't even imagine being up there in one of these storms. Kind of surprised with how often I go but so far so good. It'd be a stressful day/night.

I was in the July 2014 storm.....the one that caused all the injuries and rescues on Lady Boot Bay. We were far from there .....on Gaskin. It had been a dead calm, sweltering afternoon and the fish bit like mad that evening. That should of been my list of clues. I had printed the 10 day forcast but forgot my weather radio......oops. Went to bed late and as I fell asleep I heard the breeze start to whistle through the white pines. Hour or 2 later, the first round of thunder woke me and the first wave of wind. Then the horizontal rain came with more wind, lightening, thunder. The tent walls started bowing in even though we were in a decent, sheltered location. I did a quick recall through my mind of where tents, trees and big rocks (for shelter) were, and I knew all had their rain gear if needed. I also knew canoes were well stashed and tied down. A medium sized pine went down in camp, near fire pit, and I almost said "time to exit tents", but things started to calm a little then and we rode it out inside for the remainder and even went back to sleep in just a good old frog soaker. All was well in the morning except for soaked , scattered gear and lots of small down trees on the portages out. It took a while to get to Poplar and there were FS personnel at the landing and that's where I heard about the troubles in the western BW and considered us fortunate. Weather radio always gets remembered now as that storm was nowhere on the 5 day forcast. I have been in some other storms, but none as bad as that night. You should always go to bed with some sort of plan in your mind......just in case.

We live just south of Cook and the July 26th storm brought about an inch of hail and pretty much destroyed my garden! Would have hated to be in a tent!!

Looks like more storms may be on the way today.

That is the worst thing about a garden, besides weeding, is how easily it can be wiped out after you've put in so much time and effort. I have a large garden, including 36 tomatoes, so hail is definitely not welcome here.

Just got out, we were on Disappointment on the 26th when the "bowing out" area came through - it was the worst weather I've been "out" in and not something I'd like to experience again. Crazy high winds I'd have to say over 50 mph, sideways rain turning to hail, wind direction "rotating" from west to south to east. Wow. Heart rate was definitely elevated for some time after.
