WEATHER STORY:

A small trough of lower air pressure along the Canadian border will make it mild and cloudy for the overnight. Wednesday morning, there’s a 30% chance for the low to deposit a trace to an inch of snow. The back end of the low will bring a similar snow chance to the region again on Thursday. The back end of this low and the front end of a new one from the west could bring a better chance for snow on Friday. But, there’s also a chance those lows will both be too far south for us by then. Come Friday, the warm spell of temps in the 20′s will go away but the drop back into the teens above zero won’t be too drastic.

TUESDAY NIGHT:

The sky will be mostly cloudy as a low and its warm front runs on the border of Minnesota, Manitoba and Ontario. Iron Range low temps may have a range of 0-10. The rest of Minnesota could have lows from 10-20. Wisconsin and the U.P. will have lows from 18-22. The wind will be W 5-15 mph.

WEDNESDAY:

The sky will stay mostly cloudy and there will be a 30% chance for a trace to an inch of snow between 5 a.m. and noon. The afternoon should be partly sunny. The afternoon high will be 10-20 for the Iron Range. The rest of MN will go 22-27. WI and the U.P. may hit between 23-27. The wind will be NNW 5-10 mph.

THURSDAY:

The sky will be partly sunny with scattered snow showers peppering the region to the tune of another trace to an inch. The low temp will be near 8. The afternoon high will be close to 20. The wind will be N 5-15 mph.

COMING UP:

On Friday, we will probably get another chance for snow. Right now, it is uncertain if it will be light or moderate depending on the track that low pressure system takes. It is more certain that temperatures will cool down, though. Most of Friday to next Tuesday will have highs in the teens and lows in the single digits above zero. An exception will be Sunday when another low drops another snow chance that will bump the high up to 25 for a one day performance.
