Lake-effect snow ending by midnight with 1-3 inches possible; Weak clipper system brings snow chances Sunday
DULUTH, MN. (KBJR) - TONIGHT: Lake-effect snow will continue in Duluth, along the north shore, and eventually northern Wisconsin until Saturday morning. Some areas around Two Harbors and northern part of Duluth have already seen a few inches. 1-3 inches of additional snow is possible tonight. Highway 61 has had reports of black ice and snow on the roads. Temperatures will fall tonight to the lower single digits with the wind chills even colder. Winds will continue to be breezy from the northeast between 10-20 mph until changing to the south by Saturday morning. This will cause the snow to end by the time the Winter Weather Advisory will expire at 6:00 A.M. Saturday morning. For everyone else across the Northland, expect mostly cloudy skies with single digit lows.
SATURDAY: The lake effect snow will be done by Saturday morning, but temperatures are expected to be cold in the single digits. Sunshine will return as high pressure moves through to the northeast of the Northland. Saturday will be a mostly sunny day with decent highs in the upper teens. A few Wisconsin towns might briefly hit in the lower 20s. Winds will be calm from the northwest between 5-10 mph. Lows will fall back to the single digits Saturday night with mostly clear to partly cloudy skies. Overall, Saturday looks to be a typical January day.
SUNDAY: High pressure moves to the east which will bring in a weak clipper system from the north. This system doesn’t have much moisture, but just enough for snow chances early Sunday morning. Snow will begin early Sunday morning and be scattered by the lunch hour. Accumulation looks to be less than an inch. Temperatures will be warmer compared to Saturday into the mid 20s. Mild temperatures will continue after the system passes by the late afternoon. Lows will be slightly warmer in the lower teens with mostly cloudy skies.
