StormTeam Outlook: Tuesday, December 6th, 2016
Chief Meteorologist Justin Liles
An area of low pressure out west along the North Dakota-Minnesota border will continue is trek to the northeast through Wednesday. Wrap around moisture will lead to more periods of light snow tonight and Wednesday. The winds are also going to pick up out of the northwest. This will lead to a prolonged lake effect snow event for areas of the south shore. Windy conditions will cause road conditions to deteriorate rapidly beginning late Wednesday and lasting through Friday. The heaviest snow will fall along the higher terrain of the Bayfield Peninsula, the Gogebic range through Iron County. Places like Mellen, Montreal, Gile and Ironwood could see a foot or more of snow.
The rest of the northland will be dealing with drier conditions but we’ll see more cold and bitter winds. By the time Friday rolls in we will be experiencing wind chill values in the single digits to below zero. More light snow is expected this weekend with another low.
