More snow Friday afternoon!

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

TONIGHT:
Lake effect snow bands will continue to bring light snow to the Twin Ports and North Shore tonight. Expect an additional 1-2” of snow. Winds are out of the northeast at 4-8mph continuing the lake effect snow machine. Low temps are in the upper single digits to near 10.

FRIDAY:
Another low pressure system moves in Friday. It brings a southeast flow that continues lake effect snow for the North Shore throughout the morning. The rest of the area sees a break in the snow action. The low pushes snow into the region by the evening hours. So our 80% chance of snow occurs in the late afternoon to evening. High temperatures are in the low to mid 20s.

SATURDAY:
Our low moves east and combines with a larger Low over New York State on Saturday. A small shortwave in the jet stream swings over and increases our chances of snow to 60% throughout the day mainly for places east of Virginia, Duluth, and Siren.

ACCUMULATIONS:
By Saturday afternoon, accumulations will be around 2-4” for the Iron Range, I. Falls, Duluth, Ely, and Hayward. Expect 3-6” in Ashland, Ironwood, Silver Bay, and Grand Marais. On the ridge next to Lake Superior in Cook and Lake Counties, expect around 5-8” of snow as the southeast wind at 5-15mph brings in moisture from the lake that is forced up by the hill creating higher totals.

SUNDAY:
High pressure builds from the west on Sunday. It brings cold air with it too! Morning lows are near -10 and highs reach 5 with mostly sunny skies.

MONDAY:
Another shortwave in the jet stream swings over Sunday night into Monday morning. This brings a small 20% chance of flurries in the morning hours. Lows are down to -2 and highs reach 12.

TUESDAY:
The shortwave strengthens and turns into a powerful trough that sinks south and brings arctic air to the region Tuesday. Morning lows are down to -4 and highs reach 10 by around midday before tumbling to -16 by Wednesday morning.
