-20 to -30 degree wind chills tonight before another weak clipper brings snow Sunday afternoon
DULUTH, MN. (CBS 3 Duluth) - TONIGHT: A weak clipper system will move pass the Northland during the evening hours which will limit the snow chances. The Brainerd could see a brief snow episode during the early evening hours. Otherwise, tonight will be another bitter cold evening with temperatures falling to -10 to -15 degrees with wind chills between -20 to -30 degrees. Due to this, the NWS has issued a Wind Chill Advisory for only the Minnesota counties through noon on Sunday. Once the weak clipper system moves pass the Northland, the clouds will quickly dissipate giving away to a mostly clear evening. Radiational cooling will cause the temperatures to drop quickly. Winds will be from the northwest between 5-10 mph. Stay warm!
SUNDAY: The clear skies will continue Sunday morning as high pressure moves in temporarily before the next clipper system arrives in the late afternoon into the evening hours. Temperatures will not warm up much due to the northwest winds bringing the cold air with highs only being in the single digits. Winds will continue to be from the northwest before changing to the southwest briefly in the afternoon. The weak clipper system will move over the Northland which gives the area a chance for snow. Due to lack of moisture, the system will not develop much snow which will limit the snowfall accumulation. 1-2 inches of snow is possible for most of the Northland with less than an inch in the Iron Range and Arrowhead region as well as parts of northern Wisconsin. Lake-effect snow will continue for the UP through Monday morning.
MONDAY: Once the clipper system moves away, the Northland will see several days of dry conditions with cold temperatures. High pressure will once again develop and move across the northern Midwest. Highs on Monday will barely reach the teens with mostly sunny skies. Winds will be a little breezy from the northwest between 10-15 mph with gusts up to 20 mph. Lows will be bitter cold again Monday and Tuesday night with temperatures between -10 to -15 degrees. This type of weather will continue through Thursday before a warmup arrives and a low chance for snow flurries.
