A weak cold front will push through the Northland during the afternoon hours and will bring a few areas of clouds. Skies will be partly cloudy with highs temps in the mid to upper 30s in Minnesota and upper 30s to low 40s for Wisconsin. After the front passes our winds will be out of the northwest at 5-10mph.
Clouds build ahead of our next big system from the west. There’s a large low in Western Canada and a smaller low in NE Colorado. They are part of a larger trough in the jet stream over the western states. Sunday morning will be mostly clear with lows down to 15. Then clouds build throughout the rest of the morning into the afternoon and our highs reach the upper 20s to low 30s.
Overnight the two lows progress eastward and bring an 80% chance of wet snow to our region. The snow lasts into Monday morning and departs from west to east by the afternoon hours. We could even see a little sun by Monday afternoon. Morning lows are in the mid 20s and highs are in the low 30s. There’s also a chance of an icy mix with this system, so watch out for freezing rain! Expect around 6-10” around Duluth, Superior, Ely, Orr, International Falls, and Two Harbors. 8-12” can be expected north of Silver Bay toward Grand Marais and Lutsen. The Iron Range, Bigfork, Grand Rapids, Moose Lake, Cloquet, Ashland, and Hayward can expect around 3-6”. Just east of Ironwood can also expect 6-10”.
Tuesday the northern low pressure system is just to our north and will pump in colder air creating uplift to warrant a 40% chance of snow showers and on and off flurries. Around 1-2” can be expected.
Then the arctic air spills south into Wednesday. Morning lows are down to 6 and highs reach the mid teens.
