Rain & snow mix may mess up roads thru Thursday

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00


As a low bubbles our way from the west, the chance of wintry mix showers happening runs 30-50% for our region. The 30 is more likely in MN and the 50 more likely in WI & MI. Low temps will be 15-25 in MN and run 23-28 for WI & MI. The wind will be SSW 5-15 mph.


The chance for more potentially slippery rain/snow mixes will be 50% for East Central MN and the Twin Ports. The Iron Ranges and Borderland may not get much of anything. Wisconsin and the U.P. though, get a 60% chance for a bit of snow to stick. Check out the totals chart below. High temps will be 25-30 in MN. They will be 30-35 in WI & MI. The wind will be NE 5-15 mph.


The back side of the low will cool the atmosphere aloft enough to make more snow than rain. Again, please check the chart below for snow totals estimates for Thursday and Friday's action. Friday will start with a low 25 and finish with a high of 30. The wind will be ESE 5-15 mph.


From Wednesday through Friday, the Iron Range could see a dusting to a 1/2", but higher totals will be across northern and northeastern Wisconsin. These areas could see 3-6" potentially, mainly SE of Ashland and Hayward. The Twin Ports, North Shore, I-35 corridor and most of northern Wisconsin will see 1-3".


A long lasting warm spell is here and will be with us for the weekend. Saturday will be mostly cloudy with low 25 and high 33. Sunday will be mostly cloudy with low 24 and high 32.


Normal high temp is near 20. We will be near 30 all next week. Monday should be cloudy but dry and our next chance for snow comes to call on Tuesday and Wednesday. Right now, the odds of a snowy success are only 30%, though.
