WEATHER STORY: WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY WILL COVER NORTHWEST MINNESOTA THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT. WINTER STORM WATCH AFFECTS EAST CENTRAL MINNESOTA AND NORTHWEST WISCONSIN. The Minnesota Arrowhead and the Upper Peninsula may not see much snow at all from our approaching system. Snow totals by Friday night may run 3-6" in the zones facing the advisory and watch. Snow totals for the zones with no advisories may only get 1-3".
WEDNESDAY NIGHT: After some sun Wednesday afternoon, clouds will go back up as a low pressure system from the west gets closer. Low temp will be near 23. The wind will be SE 5-10 mph.
THURSDAY: The low will bring a 70% chance for light to moderate snow. Afternoon high temp will be near 29. The wind will be E 5-15 mph.
FRIDAY: The low will keep a 60% chance for snow going. Morning low will be 29 and the high will hit 32 in the afternoon. The wind will be N 10-20 mph.
COMING UP: Usually, it becomes bitterly cold when a low pressure system leaves our region. This time, it will merely cool back to normal when the low goes to someone else's hometown on Saturday. Meteorologist Dave Anderson will have the latest on the start of the storm system Wednesday night on the CBS 3 evening news. Meteorologist Kaitlyn Moffett may be in the thick of it Thursday morning with updates during the morning newscast between 5-7 am.
