StormTeam Outlook: Sunday, December 4th
Winter Weather Advisory for Duluth, Carlton County. North Shore
A disturbance sweeping through the Upper Midwest has created pockets of light to moderate snow this morning, and the snow will stay with us through the better part of the afternoon. The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for Carlton, southern St. Louis, including Duluth, and the shoreline communities of the North Shore into tonight due to the snow.
Areas included in the Advisories are likely to see about 3-6" of snow by the time this system pulls out of the area tonight. Those of us along the Iron Range are not escaping the snow either. You will likely see about 2-4" by this afternoon. For the rest of the in the Northland, your final accumulations will be on the lighter side, but still in area of 1-2".
The lake enhancement and added snowfall totals from Carlton County to up along the North Shore are due to winds out of the south and southeast. Those winds are not just creating a little more lift in the atmosphere, but they are also keeping temperatures slightly above average. Highs today will climb to or just above the freezing mark all across the Northland.
We'll see a slight break in the action early tomorrow, but another storm system will create more light snow beginning tomorrow night, especially north of the Twin Ports. More notably, a strong northerly flow will provide much colder weather for the latter half of the week. Daytime temperatures will not make it out of the teens, and many locations will drop down below zero Thursday and Friday night.
Thanks for reading and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
