SUNSHINE TO PEAK TOMORROW AS TEMPERATURES WARM

 

Another round of snow was ongoing this afternoon from a new low pressure moving up through Eastern Wisconsin. Rain, freezing rain, and snow were observed in the U.P. of Michigan. In Gogebic, Iron, and Cook County, snow was reported. We did have a few reports of accumulation with closer to 4 inches in Gile, two and a half in Bessemer, and about an inch in Mercer. The steady snowfall will be ending later tonight, but cold air wrapping around this storm will keep the chance of some scattered snow showers into the overnight. Temperatures will cool off into the 20s along the Borderlands to the lower 30s south of Highway 2.

Tomorrow will be a more pleasant day with the exception of Borderland areas.  The influence will still be felt across that area from the departing storm system. A few scattered snow and rain showers are to be expected along this area. Farther south near and south of the Highway 2 corridor, the weather should remain dry. Skies are expected to clear as well which could allow temperatures to rise into the mid and upper 40s.

Saturday will be the best day this weekend with high temperatures rising into the upper 40s and lower 50s under sunny skies as high pressure takes control across the area. The lull in any storm system will be short lived as cloudy will be on the increase with a northeast wind on Sunday. Temperatures will only be in the lower 40s along the lake. Late Sunday night, there will be some rain that moves in from the south. This rain will change of to a wintry mix and snow for some Northlanders as the day continues Monday. Highs will be in the lower to mid-30s.

A lot of moisture is currently projected with this storm Monday. Some Northlanders could see over an inch of precipitation, some in the form of wintry precipitation. Any wrap around moisture as the storm departs should be in the form of snow early Tuesday morning.
