ARCTIC AIR EASES SOME AS TWO SNOW SYSTEMS MOVE ACROSS THE NORTHLAND!
The bitter cold will ease a bit, but we’ll pay the price with two snow systems moving across the Northland!
We woke up to the coldest temperatures since last winter this morning with lows in the double digits below zero!
While it was -16° in Duluth, elsewhere across Minnesota, it was -29° in Eveleth and -24° in Hinckley. Solon Springs, Wisconsin started the day at -22°!
Wind chills were even worse in the -25° to -40° range.
Afternoon highs were generally around zero and in the single digits above zero, but wind chills were still well below zero!
Our next round of snow is on the way tonight and early Thursday.
A “Winter Weather Advisory” goes into effect tonight and covers all of Northwest Wisconsin through noon Thursday and western upper Michigan until 4 p.m. Thursday.
Across Minnesota, a “Winter Weather Advisory” runs from 10 p.m. Wednesday through noon Thursday for Aitkin, Carlton, Pine, and southern St. Louis counties.
Northern Minnesota is not included in the “advisory”, but will generally see an inch or two of snow (or less).
The heaviest snow, 4”-6”, will fall across our southern hometowns from around Hinckley, Minnesota, eastward to Siren, Wisconsin, to Ironwood, Michigan. Of course, there could be some isolated higher totals.
Another disturbance will bring more snow Friday.
This time, it looks like northern Minnesota will see the heaviest snow with several inches likely. Meanwhile, the Twin Ports and the southern hometowns may see a few inches. But, let’s get through the first snow event tonight and Thursday and we’ll focus more on Friday, Friday night, and early Saturday’s snow.
Highs will be in the teens and low-20s Friday with the next round of snow.
It’ll be turning colder again this weekend into the middle of next week.
Saturday’s highs in the teens will drop to the single digits Sunday. Overnight lows will drop back below zero this weekend into early next week!
