MUCH COLDER TEMPERATURES ARE ON THE WAY AFTER THE EARLY WEEKEND SNOW ENDS!

Moderate to heavy lake effect snow is possible along the North Shore tonight and early Saturday and then it shifts to the South Shore during the day Saturday.

The rest of the Northland will see a quick round of snow Friday night that moves out Saturday morning.

Away from the lake effect, most of us will see a total of about 1”-4” of snow.

A “Winter Storm Warning” remains in effect through 6 a.m. Saturday for southern Cook and southern Lake counties in Minnesota and for the North Shore for a total of 4”-8” of snow.  There could be isolated higher totals.

Also, a “Winter Weather Advisory” runs through 6 a.m. Saturday for northern Cook, northern Lake, and northern St. Louis counties.

As for the South Shore snow Saturday, a “Winter Weather Advisory” runs through 6 p.m. Saturday for Iron County, Wisconsin!

The northern parts of Ashland, Bayfield, and Iron counties could pick up a total of 4”-8” of snow with lesser amounts inland.

Once the lake effect snow ends, quiet weather moves into the Northland for Sunday and for much of next week.  However, it’ll be bitterly cold.

After highs in the teens Saturday, lows by Sunday morning will be in the single digits and teens below zero.  Wind chills will be between -25° to -35°!

Plenty of sunshine is on tap Sunday, but highs will only make it into the single digits.  Some hometowns will stay below zero for highs!

A sun and cloud mix is on tap for Monday with more clouds Tuesday.  Highs both days will be in the single digits and teens.  Overnight lows will drop to -5° to -15°!

A few snow showers are possible Tuesday and Thursday.

Temperatures will moderate into the teens Thursday and some of us will be well into the 20s by next Friday!
