TODAY: Snow covered roads and reduced visibility start off our day, so take extra time when driving in to work this morning. Snow tapers off in the Northland around 6 or 7 a.m. We then see partial clearing heading into the overnight. High temperatures will be in the upper 20's with winds out of the WNW at 5-10 MPH.
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy skies give way to lows in the upper single digits. Winds will be out of the NNE at 5-10 MPH. Our next system begins to move in, so we'll also see a 20% chance of snow after midnight.
WEDNESDAY: Our second system of the week moves in. Snow starts in Duluth around 5 a.m. and lasts through the afternoon hours. Totals range from 2-6" throughout the region, with lake effect snow possible along portions of the South Shore. Highs will be in the upper teens. High pressure starts to build into the region, so we'll see lows in the teens below zero.
THURSDAY: High pressure continues bringing sunny skies and highs in the low-to-mid single digits and lows in the single digits below zero.
WEEKEND: Our third system of the week moves in Friday afternoon. It's still too early to talk about exact placement and totals, but it looks to be larger than the first two systems earlier this week. Most of the region should see over 6" as long range models are in surprisingly good agreement. I want to wait until higher resolution models become available to put out exact totals, but we'll have to keep an eye on this system as it approaches. The storm wraps up Saturday evening. Temperatures fall heading into Sunday and Monday.
Have a great week, and stay safe out there folks!
