Lake effect snow on the way, here’s the latest!
TODAY: Colder air will filter into the region today. We’ll see our high temperatures in the 20s around 9:00 AM, with falling temperatures throughout the rest of the day. Winds will be out of the north at 5-10 MPH bringing light lake effect snow to the South Shore of Lake Superior, mainly during the afternoon hours. Winds switch out of the east at 5-15 MPH overnight, which will cause lake effect snow to develop along the North Shore of Lake Superior. Lows fall into the single digits above and below zero, with some teens below zero possible in northern MN.
FRIDAY: A snow storm will clip southwestern portions of the Northland throughout the day, bringing 1-3″ in areas like Brainerd and Aitkin. The main story for our region, however, will be the continuing lake effect snow along the North Shore and in the Twin Ports as winds will be out of the ENE at 5-15 MPH. These areas could see 1-3″, with localized higher amounts possible. Lake effect snow wraps up early Saturday morning as winds switch direction.
SATURDAY: Lingering lake effect snow will be possible in the early morning hours along the North Shore. Otherwise, high pressure brings mostly clear to partly cloudy skies throughout the majority of the Northland. Highs reach the mid-teens with lows in the single digits above and below zero.
