Flood Watch cremains in effect for WI & MI until 1 AM Friday morning. Winter Weather Advisory continues through 1 AM for Koochiching and Beltrami counties.
The large low pressure system that brough 1-2″ of rain already will continue to push northeast overnight. The system “bombed out” on Wednesday, which means we saw a rapid drop in pressure (24 millibars or greater) in 24 hours. But now, the low is filling in with air from outside high pressure systems that will kick up the wind and cool things down and convert remaining precip to light snow. A trace to two inches is likely for most towns though the Snow Belt in WI & MI plus Koochiching County could get a bit more than that. Check the map below for estimates. Low temps will be 20-25. The wind will be NW 10-30 mph.
The sky will be mostly cloudy as the low departs and a cooler high pressure system approaches. High temps will be 28-33. The wind will stay gusty and be NW 10-20 mph.
Heavier totals can be found in the Snowbelt and the U.P., but totals will remain light.
THE WEEKEND & BEYOND:
Higher pressure will win on Saturday with a clear to partly cloudy sky with low 13 and high 33. Sunday will be partly sunny with 30% chance for flurries with low 19 and high 37. Next Monday to Thursday should be dry with lows 20-25 and highs 37-46.
