TODAY: We're in for a very pleasant day ahead of us after a rather cold start. High pressure sliding to our south will give us sunny skies and winds out of the NW at 5-15 mph. Highs are in the upper teens to mid 20s, so still a little below average.
TONIGHT: Skies remain clear for most of the evening, but we'll see increasing clouds from west to east overnight. Winds trend light out of the WNW but will turn SW overnight as a warm front approaches. Lows are in the single digits above, but could drop below zero around Hibbing, Hayward, Mercer and Butternut.
SATURDAY: The warm front will slide through the area, and with the high departing to our south, we'll see a nice warm-up with partly cloudy to partly sunny skies. Winds trend S to SSW at 5-15 mph, but will turn more SSE to SE Saturday night. Skies become cloudy Saturday night with areas of patchy fog and patchy freezing drizzle possible. Highs are in the 30s, with areas west closer to 40. Lows only fall back into the 20s.
SUNDAY: We'll see partly sunny to mostly cloudy skies, but temperatures will be even warmer. We'll see a S to SE wind becoming W to NW into Sunday night as a cold front slides through. Highs are in the upper 30s to upper 40s, with lows in the upper teens to mid 20s.
MONDAY-TUESDAY: The mild conditions continue into early next week. We'll see partly cloudy skies Monday, but a system to our north could bring a slight chance for rain and snow showers Tuesday. Highs are in the mid 30s to low 40s with lows in the upper teens to mid 20s.
WEDNESDAY-FRIDAY: Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy to round out next week. We could see a slight chance for light snow or a mix Wednesday and Thursday, but chances look minimal as of now. Highs remain in the 30s, but models indicate another surge of warm air by Friday, with models pushing highs back into the 40s.
