First low departs, then a brief break before second low moves in overnight, Wednesday

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00


We'll see peeks of sunshine throughout the day, but some snow showers may linger across the Borderland and Arrowhead this morning as the first low departs. We should see a little more sun in the late afternoon. Winds begin S and SE at 5-10 mph but will become W at 7-18 mph. Highs will top out in the mid 20s to low 30s, but will cool a bit in the afternoon.


We'll see partly cloudy skies through mid-evening, but clouds will increase as the next system approaches. Some snow showers are possible after midnight. Winds will be light out of the WNW to NW, but will turn NE overnight. It'll be colder tonight, with lows in the single digits and teens.


The second low will pass across Iowa and northern Illinois, but we'll see a good chance of snow showers as an upper level trough passes through. Winds trend NE during the morning, but will become NW in the afternoon at 5-15 mph. Highs range from the single digits northwest to the upper teens in the Twin Ports to the 20s southeast.


A strong high pressure will settle in, allowing for decreasing clouds and much colder air to filter in. Winds remain NW at 5-15 mph, but 10-20 mph in the Twin Ports, so lake effect snow showers will continue along the South Shore, U.P. and Snowbelt. Lows range from the teens and 20s below west to around -10 in the Twin Ports to the single digits above along the South Shore.


Most areas will see another 2-5" of accumulation, but some isolated amounts up to 6" is possible. The Borderland and Grand Marais will see a trace to 2". Areas in the U.P. and Snowbelt could see 5-10".


The high pressure will move right over the Northland, giving us plenty of sunshine. Highs will be cold, topping out in the single digits above, but some areas north and northwest may struggle to get to zero. Lows fall back into the single digits and teens below Thursday night with increasing clouds.


Eyes are still on another winter storm set to impact the Northland. Models are still in some disagreement, but it's starting to become more likely that we'll see the potential for significant snowfall. Snow will begin Friday afternoon and last through Saturday night. While it's still still early to discuss exact totals, the potential for 6"+ is there for a good chunk of the Northland. Along with that, we'll see some gusty winds out of the SE, so lake enhancement is possible along the North Shore. Be sure to stay with the CBS 3 Weather Team as we track this system.
