TODAY: Models moved our low further to the south with last night's run. This has impacted our snow total forecast and timing quite a bit. Rain and snow have moved into western portions of the Northland as of 4:00 AM this morning. Some freezing rain will be possible with this initial precipitation. Cooler air filters in throughout the morning, which will transition most of the mixed precipitation into mainly snow by the early afternoon hours. Models have also delayed the arrival of snow to the Twin Ports. I'm anticipating light to moderate snowfall to arrive sometime during the evening hours, just after we begin the evening commute. This will continue to be on and off through the evening hours on Friday. Winds are out of the ENE at 5-15 MPH, gusting higher at times. If our temperatures were cooler, we'd have the potential for lake effect snow. This won't be the case today. Our chance for snow in the Twin Ports is 50%.
OVERNIGHT: We'll see snow become likely as we head into the evening and overnight hours. Snowfall rates will remain light to moderate for the most part. Winds continue out of the NE at 5-15 MPH, gusting higher at times. Our chance for snow in the Twin Ports is 60%.
FRIDAY: On and off snowfall continues for Duluth throughout the day, eventually wrapping up during the later afternoon and early evening hours. Totals will be highest to the south and west. I anticipate the lowest totals to occur around the Arrowhead of MN.
SATURDAY: Lingering flurries are possible during the morning hours, especially along the South Shore of Lake Superior. Otherwise we'll see mostly cloudy skies with highs in the mid 20s.
CATCH MY FULL FORECAST ON KBJR 6 FROM 5-7 AND AGAIN AT NOON!
Have a great day!
