Rainfall in the past two weeks has been spotty across much of the Arrowhead region of the state, causing drought conditions in certain areas to worsen. 

Some of Cook County are experiencing 'abnormally dry' conditions, and others are in a 'moderate' drought level. 

As you head down the North Shore towards Duluth, drought conditions worsen. 

According to the National Weather Service, the 14-day precipitation outlook for Cook County has a 30%-50% chance of being below average. 

Temperatures for the next 14 days look to be normal for this time of year, with a 40-50% chance of being above normal.
