StormTeam Outlook: Sunday, February 7th
Winter Weather Advisory Along Parts of Range, South Shore
A strong Clipper system sweeping through the Great Lakes will bring about 1-2 inches of snow south of US Highway 2 and 2-5 inches to areas along US Highway 2 and to the north including the Twin Ports. Areas along the Arrowhead could see over half a foot of snow by Tuesday morning.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for Koochiching and Itasca counties and areas to the south and west until 6:00 a.m. tomorrow. A Winter Weather Advisory is also in place for counties in Wisconsin along the South Shore until 6:00 a.m. tomorrow.
Snow will continue tonight as an area of low pressure moves over Lake Superior. Winds will also become a factor with gusts as high as 35 mph limiting visibility at times tonight. It is not out of the realm of possibility that we could see blizzard conditions at times tonight, not because of the amount of snow, but because of snow whipped around by the winds.
Snow will begin to taper off tomorrow afternoon to the west, followed by clearing skies and much cooler air being funneled into the region. The lake effect snow machine is likely to kick in along the South Shore Monday night as winds out of the north and northwest howl over Lake Superior.
Highs this upcoming week will fluctuate between the single digits and teens with occasional nights of below zero temperatures.
Thanks for reading and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
