Cloudier skies, cooler temperatures ahead with some lake effect snow

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

TODAY: We'll see some sunshine this morning, but skies become mostly cloudy by the afternoon. The passage of a weak upper-level wave could bring some flurries in the afternoon and evening hours. Winds trend N to NNE at 5-15 mph. The South Shore could see some light lake flurries, but with the warm temperatures, very little to no accumulation is expected. Highs are in the upper 20s to mid 30s, so still mild, but cooler than the past few days.

TONIGHT: We'll see mostly cloudy skies and a chance of some light lake effect snow showers and flurries for the South Shore. Winds trend light out of the N and NNE, but around 5-15 mph lakeside. Lows fall back into the teens, with single digits north.

WEDNESDAY: Skies will be mostly cloudy to cloudy with a chance of lake effect snow showers for the South Shore. Some flurries are possible in the Twin Ports. Winds trend N to NNW at 5-15 mph, which will also bring in cooler air as a high moves to our north. Highs are in the mid-teens to mid 20s.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Skies will partially clear for most areas, but lake effect snow showers continue for the U.P. and South Shore. Winds will be light out of the N and NNW. Lows fall back into the single digits above and below zero.

SNOW FORECAST: Most areas should just see some flurries, but areas along the Bayfield Peninsula and South Shore could see a couple inches of snow. The Twin Ports should see a trace to as much as an inch.

THURSDAY: The high slides to our east, but an upper-level wave east will keep the clouds around, so I'm going with partly cloudy to partly sunny skies. Winds remain light out of the N. Highs are in the teens to low 20s. Skies clear Thursday night as another high settles in. Lows fall back into the single digits above and below zero, but some teens below are possible north.

WEEKEND: The weekend looks dry with plenty of sunshine, and a few extra clouds Sunday. Highs are in the upper teens to mid 20s Friday with mid 20s to low 30s Saturday and mid to upper 30s Sunday. The warmer temperatures are thanks to a more west to southwest flow.

EARLY NEXT WEEK: The mild weather will linger to begin the first week of March. Skies trend mostly cloudy with a slight chance of a rain/snow mix. Highs are in the mid 30s to low 40s with lows in the 20s.

EXTENDED FORECAST:

CLIMATE PREDICTION CENTER 8-14 DAY TEMPERATURE OUTLOOK: The latest outlook indicates the mild temperatures will continue after the 7-Day. The outlook runs from March 3-March 9.
