We’ll have a small break in the clouds tonight but as a clipper approaches from the northwest, clouds will increase after 2am to mostly cloudy to overcast. Southwest winds will keep our temperatures above average with lows in the mid to upper teens with some low teens possible around I. Falls, Silver Bay, Aitkin, and Ely. In Minnesota the SW flow is around 5-15mph and in Wisconsin we have 3-6mph winds.
The clipper is not expected to bring a huge chance of snow, it’s really too far north to do so. But it will bring a big shift in the wind and much colder air will move into the region. There’s a 40% chance of snow showers for I. Falls, Ely, Grand Marais, and the Iron Range. Places south can expect a 20% chance of some snow showers. The winds will be strong and out of the west at 10-20mph with gusts up to 30mph. Skies will be cloudy throughout the day.
Wednesday a high pressure system moves in from the northwest. This calms our winds down and clears us up. It allows our temps in Duluth to get down to around -1 and we’ll have -5 to -12 to the north and around 5 to 10 for low temps to the southeast in NW Wisconsin. Highs will get into the low to mid teens with mostly sunny skies expected.
OH SO COLD:
Low temperatures on Thursday are right around 0 and highs reach to near 11 with mostly sunny skies. We are now in between two high pressure systems, one to the east and one to the northwest.
The next high pressure system brings some arctic air with it. It causes our lows to plunge down to around -10 Friday morning with highs only around 2. Skies are sunny to mostly sunny.
Overnight the high pressure, which is at 1044mb, continues our cold blast of arctic air from the north. Lows Saturday morning are near -15 and highs are right around -3. Expect sunny skies.
