STAYING COOL AND RELATIVELY DRY
Get used to freezing temperatures because several nights ahead call for readings to dip below 32°. Keep in mind, this is right at average for the overnight hours. Also to note, this time of year is normally when we do pick up our first measurable snowfall! We will also struggle to reach 50° through the afternoon hours on Friday and through much of the upcoming weekend as well. Expect the cooler pool of air to settle along the northern tier of the Upper Midwest. Luckily, high pressure will keep us dry as some clouds and times of sun will poke through our sky. Enough moisture will be present in our atmosphere, as light rain and possibly some light snow will impact portions of the South Shore and most likely Gogebic County into the weekend!
The relatively dry weather will persist into early next week as well. In fact, a much warmer air mass will take over the Midwest, thus daytime temperatures will steadily warm into the upper 40s and 50s Monday through Wednesday of next week. This will also be the precursor to a new storm system mid to late next week. The atmosphere will be warm enough for precipitation to fall as rain but plan on a rather wet setting Tuesday evening through Wednesday of next week. As we near November, wintertime weather will start to become a reality and we have seen an uptick in average annual snowfall for many locations in the Northland. This winter remains in a La Nina pattern which normally suggests cooler and snowier conditions! Last winter was also a La Nina year, but conditions did instead remain mild and drier.
