The cold snap of Friday becomes a warm spell on Saturday

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

FRIDAY NIGHT & SATURDAY MORNING:  Arctic high pressure brought a cold snap that broke Hibbing's cold record for the date at -32. The high then made for a sunny Friday. But, a new low coming from the west is leading with its warm front so clouds will go up Friday night and so will temperatures. Come Saturday morning, low temps will be near 10 above. The wind will be southerly 10-20 mph.

SATURDAY: The warm front of the small low will create a partly sunny sky and a 30% chance for light morning snow showers. The afternoon may clear towards partly cloudy as the cold front portion of the low makes its move. High temps Saturday will run 25 to 30 above zero. The wind will be westerly 5-15 mph.

SUNDAY: High pressure behind the now departing low's cold front will slide right over the area and bring back a mostly sunny to partly cloudy sky. Temperatures will drop again. The low will be near 0 and the high may hit 12. Both counts are cooler than normal for this time of year.

MONDAY: Sunday's high will depart rapidly and a new low will make us mostly cloudy and give us a 50% chance of snow. Latest model data indicates 1-3" possible. Low temp will be 7 with a high of 23.

NEXT WEEK: Temperatures will go up and down on a daily basis. If Monday gets 23, Tuesday will get 14. If Wednesday get only 10, then Thursday will hit 22. Even if it seems like a temperature yo-yo going up and down, sky conditions will be more static. After Monday's snow chance, it will be dry and somewhat sunny Tuesday to Friday.

Climate Prediction Center TEMPERATURE OUTLOOK (FEBRUARY 20-26) shows a return to warmer conditions after this week's cold snap.
