Winter Weather Advisory in effect for lakeside communities through Saturday morning
A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in effect for towns near Lake Superior until 6 AM Saturday morning. Snow totals there may run 3-6″ and make for slippery roads. The rest of the region will get a trace to an inch of snow during the same time. Arctic high pressure will take over Saturday afternoon to bring cool conditions and a mostly sunny sky for one day. By Sunday, a new low pressure system will bring another light snow chance. Martin Luther King Junior Day on Monday will be partly sunny and milder that it often is on that holiday; the low will be +10 and the high will be +20. But, an arctic blast is on our agenda later next week.
FRIDAY NIGHT & SATURDAY MORNING:
The chance for light snow from a mostly cloudy sky stands at 50% for the overnight. The heaviest snow will be near Lake Superior. Snow will be extremely light inland. Low temperatures will rapidly cool in northern Minnesota and go -20 to -5 away from Lake Superior. Lakeside towns will have lows from 0 to 5 below. Wisconsin and Michigan will be in the 0 to -5 range, too. The wind will be NE 5-15 mph.
High pressure from the north will make the sky mostly sunny. The high temps will run 13-18 which is a little colder than normal. The wind will be SSW 5-15 mph.
The sky will cloud up again as another low pressure system comes to call. The chance for an inch of snow will be 50%. The low will be 5 and the high will go warmer than normal and hit 25. The wind will be SW 5-15 mph.
MLK Day will be partly sunny with positive numbers for the low and high: +10 to start, +20 to finish. Tuesday gets yet another snow chance with a low of 5 and a high of 20. Arctic air blasts a path through the heart of our region beginning Wednesday and lasting at least until next Friday. Lows will be -5 to -15. The highs will be 2-12.
