TODAY: An area of low pressure will progress through the Northland today bringing a 100% chance for snow. Southwestern portions of the region will begin to see snow during the mid to late morning hours, while Duluth will see snow start in the early afternoon. The highest accumulation will be in the southern half of the region and the higher terrain of the North Shore. This includes Duluth. These portions will likely see 2-5" of snow by the time this system departs early Wednesday morning. My main concern is the evening commute, so take it slow heading home from work today!
WEDNESDAY: Lingering flurries are possible early. We'll see mostly cloudy skies with highs in the mid 30's. Winds will be out of the W at 5-10 MPH, gusting higher at times. Lows fall into the mid to upper 20's.
THURSDAY: Another system brings a chance for rain and snow throughout the Northland. The area with the best chance for accumulating snowfall will be in the western half of the region. It's still a little too early to talk about any exact totals as models don't agree on the exact placement of the rain/snow line. We'll keep an eye on this system, so be sure to check back for any updates.
FRIDAY: We'll see a chance for some snow showers with highs in the mid to upper 30's and mostly cloudy skies. High pressure builds into the region overnight which will bring partly cloudy skies and lows in the teens.
