StormTeam Outlook: Friday, November 28
Benjamin Dery, Meteorologist
Quick Hitting Snow
Snow moved in late last night, and most of us will have to brush an inch or so of new snow off the car. Although snow showers persist through the first half of the day, most of the accumulation should be over and done. We still have a Winter Weather Advisory in effect over our southern zones until later today. This may be allowed to expire before noon based on how things are trending.
There may be a few slick spots this morning, but traveling shouldn't be too bad for Black Friday shoppers. Temperatures warm some from yesterday's 10° high, and warm into the mid to upper teens. Even warmer temps are expected on Saturday when we make a run at the freezing mark.
The warmer air moving in will give us a chance for sleet and freezing drizzle Friday night. Areas with the best chance of seeing icy roadways include the Iron Range and Arrowhead through Saturday morning.
Don't get used to the warm-up! Colder air moves back in Sunday into Monday. Have a great day!
