SNOW LIKELY THIS EVENING WITH TEMPERATURES WELL ABOVE NORMAL THIS WEEK
After a bitter cold week here in the Northland, temperatures returned to normal over the weekend and that warming trend continues as we start a new week. Temperatures will push into the 30s today with the help of a southerly breeze. Wind will be 10-15 mph with fairly strong gusts up to 30 mph. Widespread light to moderate snowfall will arrive late this afternoon into the early evening. There is a chance some could see a few raindrops before it transitions into snowfall. Expect minimal impacts to the evening commute.
Most of the snow will come to an end by midnight tonight, leaving behind 1-2” for most of the Northland populace. The southerly winds will add lake effect enhancement along the North Shore, putting snow totals closer to 3-4”. After tonight’s snow, clouds will decrease over the next couple of days with temperatures dropping into the 20s tomorrow, but will be back into the mid- to upper 30s on Wednesday with mostly sunny skies. A larger system will pass just to our southeast on Thursday, giving us a slight chance of snow. This coming weekend looks to be dry at this time with temperatures remaining well above normal with highs in the 20s and 30s.
