TODAY/TONIGHT: A trough in the jetstream attached to a surface low will pass through the region today. This will bring a 100% chance of snow showers across most of the region. I have not changed snow totals expected from yesterday’s forecast. We will still see the heaviest snow in Wisconsin of 4-8” with a chance of some lake effect adding a couple inches in the snow-belt region tonight. The Ports, far Northwest Wisconsin and up the North Shore will see 3-6”. Some lake enhancement at the head of the lake will be possible as well. The rest of northeast Minnesota will see 1-4”. Snow will start sometime between 4-7am and last through 7-9pm. But it could linger a bit linger in Wisconsin.
Tonight we will see the snow continue to diminish from west to east. Lows will fall into the single digits with clearing skies into tomorrow morning. Winds will be northwest 5-15mph.
WEDNESDAY: Wednesday we will see mostly sunny skies and mild temperatures! Highs will be in the mid to lower 20’s, so we should be able to melt some of this snow. Winds will be northwest to start, but becoming southwest in the afternoon 5-10mph.
THURSDAY: There will be a 30% chance of seeing a quick shot of snow on Thursday. Models are still not in the best agreement on this system, but it looks like lesser snow totals are likely. Highs will be in the upper teens on Thursday.
FRIDAY: Friday we will see partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies. Highs will be in the mid-teens. Should be a quiet weekend ahead as well, so no major snow systems!
