A fast moving wave in the jet stream swings over the Northland tonight. This brings a swath of snow from southwest to northeast through the region. Snow begins from around 9pm to 11pm and lasts into the early morning hours Wednesday. Around a trace to and inch is possible for areas around the Iron Range and points north. Around 1-2” is possible for Duluth, Two Harbors, Aitkin, Cloquet, and Ashland. Expect 2-4” in Hayward, Siren, just south of Ironwood and Mercer.
Clouds decrease throughout the morning Wednesday as the fast moving wave in the jet moves east. High pressure is in Nebraska and helps bring in dry and clear skies. Expect sunny skies by the afternoon hours. Winds are out of the northwest at 5-10mph and high temps are in the mid to upper teens across the Northland.
In the morning we have low temps near 1 and highs reaching 20 with partly cloudy skies. There’s a low to our north that brings clouds with it, but the snow showers should remain north of the border, as a high pressure over Iowa keeps the moisture at bay.
INCREASING CLOUDS/SNOW CHANCE:
Friday morning will be dry with lows near 2. Clouds are increasing throughout the day as a wave in the jet stream pushes east. It brings a 50% chance of afternoon snow showers, mainly south of the Iron Range. This system looks to bring around 1-3” for areas mainly in NW Wisconsin.
It quickly exits by Saturday morning with lows just below zero. High temps are near 9 on Saturday with partly cloudy skies. A strong upper level low is moving closer to the area from the north. As it nears our temperatures drop. Highs on Saturday are in the upper single digits. Skies are partly cloudy. Morning lows are down to -12 Sunday morning as the low sinks further south and a bubble of cold arctic air pushes south with it. Highs on Sunday are near 5 with just a few clouds expected.
