Clouds are going to increase tonight as warmer air pushes in from the south and west. Expect our low temperature to bottom out around 3-4am with temps near 9. Some locations like Ely and Grand Marais will be near 4. Winds are out of the southwest at 4-8mph.
A shortwave in the jet stream causes enough uplift to warrant a 40% chance of afternoon snow showers. Around a trace to one inch is possible south of the Borderland. To the north, around I. Falls and Ely, expect around 1-2” of snow. Southwest flow at 5-10mph gets our temperatures up into the mid to upper 20s, with some locations in the low 30s by the late evening.
The low pressure system the shortwave created pushes east but the shortwave remains over the region Thursday. This leaves us under clouds with a 20% chance of some flurries and our temperatures are much milder than average. We should be in the upper teens for highs but our high will be in the low 30s by the afternoon. Morning lows will be in the mid 20s.
A stronger trough moves in Friday. This brings colder air with it. Morning lows are in the low 20 and highs reach 22, not much of a spread! Skies are cloudy as the cold air pushes in from the north causing uplift.
At the surface the cold air is in place, but a ridge of high pressure builds aloft. Morning lows are near 10 and highs reach 20 by the afternoon. Expect partly cloudy skies, finally some sun after 3 cloudy days.
A strong low pressure system moves over Southern Canada and arrives to our region by Sunday. This brings a 40% chance of snow and more clouds. It also warms us up a little. Morning lows are in the mid teens and highs reach the mid 20s.
