TODAY/TONIGHT: Today we will see a 40% chance of scattered light snow showers across the region. However, the South Shore will likely see quite a bit more than just a dusting. Winds turn out of the NNW 10-20mph gusting up to 35mph, and with a warm Lake Superior and cold temperatures, the lake effect snow machine will be switched on. Iron and Gogebic counties can expect 6-12” of new snow today through tonight. The rest of us will see between 0.25-1”, except in Grand Marais folks could see up to 3”. Highs will be in the mid-20’s.
Tonight, high pressure rolls in to clear out the skies. Lows will plummet into the single digits and lower teens across the region! Winds will be out of the northwest 5-15mph, meaning wind chill values, even in the Ports, could dip BELOW zero tonight.
SATURDAY: Most of the day on Saturday we will see mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies. Highs will be in the upper 20’s with even a few lower 30’s. Winds will be out of the SSE 5-10mph, so likely some lake clouds up the North Shore.
SUNDAY: Saturday night and into Sunday morning we will have another shot of some light snow showers across the region. Accumulations will range from a trace to maybe an inch and a half or two inches. Highs will be in the upper 20’s and lower 30’s with winds changing throughout the day.
NEXT WEEK: We will see pretty quiet conditions into next week. Monday we will see a slight chance of flurries, otherwise mostly cloudy and chilly. We should be dry Tuesday and Wednesday, with some good sunshine on Wednesday. Possibly some more snow Thursday.
