A Winter Weather Advisory is up for the eastern half of Minnesota with a Winter Storm Warning for northern Wisconsin and the U.P. through the evening hours, and until Wednesday morning for Gogebic county.
Our low pressure continues to slide northeast, along with a wave in the jet stream. Snow will overspread the Northland throughout the day. The heaviest of the snow will be east of a Hinckley to Ely Line. Winds trend north to northeast around 8-20 mph, meaning blowing snow is a possibility. Highs today in the upper teens to mid 20s.
Snow will continue through at least the early evening, but slowly diminishes from west to east as the low departs. The wave in the jet will keep the snow around through the overnight in northern WI. Winds trend northwest around 5-15 mph, which means some light lake effect snow is possible around Ironwood. Lows fall back into the single digits to lower teens.
Lighter totals on the Minnesota side, heavier in northern Wisconsin and the U.P.
A quick-moving high pressure will slide down into the southern U.S. Wednesday afternoon, but will allow skies to clear in our area. Skies trend partly sunny north and partly cloudy south with a light west to southwest wind. Highs range from the lower 20s north to upper 20s south.
END OF WEEK:
A quick-moving low and cold front will increase clouds and bring a few light snow showers to the area, especially across northern Minnesota. Higher pressure builds behind it, clearing the skies into Friday. Highs Thursday trend in the upper teens to mid-20s. Highs fall into the teens for Friday. Lows fall back into the single digits above and below.
