WEATHER STORY: An arctic airmass from Canada will cross the border overnight to drop temperatures and kick up winds. The process has created a Wind Chill Advisory for inland portions of St Louis, Cook and Lake Counties in MN through 9 a.m. Friday. This latest cold snap will moderate on Saturday which will help induce a chance for snow that may last through early Sunday.
THURSDAY NIGHT: The sky will clear in Minnesota as cold high air pressure takes over. It should be dry in Minnesota but the movement of the cold airmass over Lake Superior could keep lake effect going for the South Shore. Low temps will be near -10. The wind will be NW 10-20 mph.
FRIDAY: The sky will be clear to partly cloudy. The high temperature will top out close to 10 above zero. The wind will be NW 5-15 mph.
SATURDAY: Clouds will go back up as a new low pressure system from the Colorado area makes a move in the direction of our region. There will be a 70% chance for 1-3" of snow beginning Saturday afternoon and lasting overnight into Sunday morning. Low temperature will be 1 and the high will go back up to 18. The wind will be S 5-10 mph.
COMING UP: Once the snow chance leaves early Sunday morning, an extended dry period could come to call. Meteorologist Dave Anderson will let us know if that will be a warm period as well Thursday night on the CBS 3 evening news. Meteorologist Kaitlyn Moffett will continue to track the Saturday system with the latest information available Friday morning between 5-7 a.m.
