Winter Storm Warning has been issued for most of St. Louis, Cook and Lake counties with a Winter Weather Advisory for points west in Minnesota plus the Snow Belt of Wisconsin and Upper Michigan. These may stay in effect through much of Thursday morning.
A strong Colorado low pressure will continue pushing to the northeast and make rain and snow likely for all of the region. Low temps will be as cool as 18 and as warm as 30 in Minnesota. Wisconsin and Michigan will have lows in the low 30’s. The wind will be E 5-15 mph.
Light to Moderate snow will continue through Thursday morning so travel will likely be impacted. Snow will gradually end throughout the day from west to east as higher pressure settles in. The sky will begin to clear Thursday night as the high pressure arrives. High temps will top out in the mid 30’s in the morning and then cool rapidly as the Canadian high takes over. Wind will be NW 15-30.
Most areas will see light accumulations, but areas in the advisory and warning areas will see the highest totals. Isolated amounts of 7-10″ is possible across northern St. Louis, northern Lake and Cook counties.
FRIDAY & THE WEEKEND:
Friday will be partly cloudy with low 14 and high 33. Saturday will be partly cloudy as well with low 23 and high 38. Sunday will be partly sunny with low 25 and high 39. Light snow chances may return by next Tuesday.
