CHILLY AND QUIET TODAY, WITH A CHANCE FOR SNOW LATER

Chilly weather continues today, but with one caveat – it won’t be nearly as windy as yesterday!  That’s a blessing, considering that yesterday’s wind made our “feels like” temperatures remain just in the single digits all day long.  We’ll begin with colder temperatures than yesterday, with lows near or slightly above zero here in Minnesota and the low teens out in Wisconsin and the U.P.  We’ll have mostly sunny and partly cloudy skies through most of the morning, but a weak low pressure out to our west helps push in some extra clouds by afternoon.  With the increased cloudiness, we’ll also watch a weak complex of snow showers move through the region this afternoon, resulting in minor accumulations that will be less than an inch just about everywhere.

Flurries are likely overnight, with partly cloudy skies and low temperatures mostly in the teens.  Areas of far northern Minnesota and the Iron Range, there’s a good chance for cold low temps in the single digits late tonight.  Thanksgiving will be rather quiet and pleasant, albeit seasonably chilly.  Temperatures will warm to the 20s by midday and in the low/mid 30s by Thursday afternoon.  That’s right in line for where we “should be” for this time of year, but for folks that are waiting until the actual day of the holiday to travel, it won’t be that bad!

Friday’s forecast is still to get a little wet and then a chance for snow and ice late in the day and in the early nighttime.  A low pressure moseys down from Canada, and then sweeps a storm system right through the Northland by the end of the week.  Precipitation might hold off until just after sunrise and as temperatures warm to the 40s by afternoon, we’ll mostly see rain during the day.  We’re expecting lows in the 20s Friday night, so any lingering moisture would be ice and then snow.  Slippery driving conditions are certainly possible at the start of the weekend.  Our weekend weather looks quiet, with freezing temperatures in the upper 20s and low 30s on Saturday and a chance to reach the mid-30s by Sunday.  Low 40s return to the forecast by early next week.  Long range guidance suggests a chance for snow on Tuesday, and we’ll keep an eye on the models for more info on what that’s looking like.
