WINTER WEATHER ALERTS REMAIN IN PLACE
Several cities across the Northland have picked up a half foot of snow with even higher totals found in the Iron Range and higher terrain spots along the North Shore! Generally, 4-8 more inches of additional snow is likely for the far northeast corner of Minnesota, with generally 2-4" at most expected along the Arrowhead of Minnesota, the Twin Ports and much of northwest Wisconsin through Monday morning. However, what will be bothersome into tonight are the strong wind gusts out of the north! Wind gusts may easily range between 40-50 mph through early Monday morning. As a result, a Blizzard Warning is in effect for portions of Cook County while a Winter Storm Warning is in effect for the majority of the Northland. Please make sure you refrain from travel tonight and through the beginning stages of Monday!
The snow will gradually come to a close by sunrise Monday but lake-effect snow will continue to impact the South Shore. Locations such as Odanah, Gogebic and Ontonagon may easily receive additional snowfall for the beginning stages of the week. Due to the nature of the strong north wind, an arctic cold blast of air will arrive and will be the main story for the Northland through the start of the week! Wind chill temperatures may easily range between -15 to -25° both Monday and Tuesday mornings as high pressure circulates into the Upper Midwest. The bitter cold wind chills will be due to the nature of the north wind combined with temperatures spread about the single digits and lower teens both Monday and Tuesday.
