StormTeam Outlook: Monday, December 5th
Winter Weather Advisory for Duluth and Points North
Another round of light to moderate snow will impact the Northland with the first flakes falling as soon as this afternoon. In anticipation of the snow, the National Weather Service has issued Winter Weather Advisories for Carlton, Itasca, Beltrami, and all other counties to the north starting late this afternoon and this evening. Areas in Minnesota from the Twin Ports and to the north of US Highway 2 will likely receive 3-6" of snow by tomorrow morning.
Precipitation is already falling in the Twin Cities, and the rain and snow will continue to move north in the coming hours. Although some of the precipitation could start as rain early, we expect snow to impact the Twin Ports for the afternoon commute. The snow will ramp up this evening as it works its way to the north, and then it will begin to diminish during the overnight hours.
Snow showers and flurries will continue through tomorrow as the area of low pressure stalls in northwest Ontario. High pressure to the west will create gusty winds for tomorrow as well.
As that storm system begins to pull away, 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.
This setup could be the making of a significant lake effect snow event along the South Shore beginning Wednesday night, and it's possible bands of snow could linger into Friday.
Thanks for reading and enjoy the start to your workweek!
