ANOTHER DAY OF SUNSHINE AHEAD BEFORE WINTRY MIX
Patchy fog developed last night as temperatures began to cool overnight, but the continued flow of winds from the west and southwest prevented much development and today has ended up as once again another very mild and above average day across the Upper Midwest. High temperatures ranged from the mid 30s to the lower 40s with the North Shore seeing the lower 40s in Two Harbors and Silver Bay this afternoon. Upper 30s were observed in the Twin Ports.
Temperatures will remain above average tonight as well with overnight lows dipping into the lower to mid 20s as the winds from the southwest continue around 5 mph. There may be some patchy fog once again tonight, but the continued flow of warm air should prevent significant fog development. Temperatures tomorrow will be very similar with highs in the mid 30s to lower 40s once again.
Our next chance of precipitation will arrive on Friday. Skies will begin to build overnight as a low pressure from Texas beginning to move north along the Mississippi River Valley. This low pressure will track into the Upper Midwest and bring the risk of a wintry mix across the Northland. Everything from rain, freezing rain, and snow are all possible precipitation types as temperatures remain mild and above freezing on Friday afternoon with highs in the mid to upper 30s.
We will keep the threat of precipitation through the weekend as a southerly flow continues to bring in small waves of moisture to the Northland area. Temperatures will continue to remain mild as well with highs staying in the mid and upper 30s. Cloudy skies should prevent temperatures from warming too much farther than that. The next chance to see accumulating snowfall may occur Tuesday night into Wednesday.
