A warming trend kicks in Thursday through the weekend after another bitterly cold night across the Northland!

After starting out Wednesday with temperatures mostly in the teens and 20s below zero (Isabella, Minnesota was the cold spot at -32°), sunshine only warmed us into the single digits to around 10° for highs.

A “Wind Chill Advisory” goes into effect Wednesday evening through 9 a.m. Thursday for northern Minnesota.

While low temperatures will fall into the teens and 20s below zero again, wind chills will be in the -25° to -35° range.

Plenty of sunshine is in the forecast through the weekend.

As a warming trend gets underway Thursday and really kicks in Friday, you really won’t notice it too much those days because of the breezy conditions.

Highs Thursday will be in the teens to around 20° and we’ll be in the 20s and 30s Friday.

As the pavements warm and the snow pack begins to melt, we’ll see a better chance of fog developing in the evening and overnight hours.

Weekend highs will be in the 30s to around 40° with overnight lows in the teens.

Our next chance of snow arrives Tuesday, Tuesday night, and Wednesday.
