Expect cloudy skies tonight with on and off flurries. A trough in the jet stream swings closer and creates enough uplift to warrant the 40% chance of light snow. Temperatures are cold with lows dipping into the mid teens for most of the Northland. Places lakeside will be around 20. Winds are out of the NW at 4-8mph.
An upper level low pressure system develops over the Northland on Friday. This keeps us under the clouds and helps form a surface low to our southeast. This brings a NW wind at 10-15mph which means there’s a good chance of some lake effect snow for the South Shore and U.P.. Around 6-10” can be expected in eastern Ashland County, Iron and Gogebic Counties. The Bayfield Peninsula into eastern Douglas County can expect around 2-5”. Away from these regions the rest of will see a trace to 2” possible. It’s going to be another chilly day too with highs only reaching the mid to upper 20s.
Saturday a weak ridge pushes over the region. This dries us up. Expect a cold morning with clearer skies. Lows are around 11 in Duluth and we will see single digits elsewhere away from the lake. Skies are mostly sunny during the morning and then we have clouds building by the afternoon. High temps reach the mid to upper 20s.
The clouds are increasing because of a few shortwaves in the jet stream pushing over the area. This brings a 40% chance of some light snow. Lows are near 20, warmer because of the cloud coverage, and highs reach the upper 20s.
Monday a larger trough builds over the region. This keeps us under the clouds and brings a 20% chance of flurries. Morning lows are in the upper teens and highs reach 26.
This trough has some really cold air with it. It arrives into Tuesday. Lows are down to 12 and highs only reach 20. Expect partly cloudy skies. Bundle up!
