For mostly N.MN west of the BWCAW but some signs pointing they may make it into W BWCA before weakening.
Enhanced risk

Thunderstorm outlook. Red is high, scroll through time selections upper left

If I were in W. regions of BW I would have weather radio on the ready for later today.

Hi WhiteWolf,

I took one of these midlands on my trip out of Little Indian Sioux North, EP14. I turned it on maybe 3 times. All I heard was weather for the Brainerd area.

Does the Brainerd area apply to the Ely side of the bwca?

No clue on that. A person N of EP 14 should be well North of getting any signal from Brainerd and should only get ELY,Crane Lake or maybe IFalls transmitters. Only thing I can think of is maybe Ely area wx radio was down for maintenance and being replaced for a time by Brainerd? But even that makes little sense in that Brainerd is not a good indicator of wx in the Ely area, why not IFalls?

FYI - there is another thread where the topic of coverage areas for weather radios is currently being discussed. I’m trying to figure it out too. Weather radio coverage areas

It is going to be a rough couple of hours for anyone trying to hold down a tent tonight. Hope everyone is ok.
