StormTeam Outlook: Saturday, March 24th
Blustery Winds Continue, Snow Possible Monday
The lake breeze will continue tonight with mostly clear skies. Temperatures will drop into the upper teens to low 20s, but it'll feel much cooler with wind chills in the single digits and low teens.
The relentless winds will continue tomorrow, however they will become more southerly. This will create temperatures about 10 warmer than today. We'll also see plenty of sunshine to wrap up the weekend, but clouds will start to become more numerous by tomorrow afternoon.
Clouds will eventually create pockets snow showers west of the Twin Ports early Monday morning. As a storm system approaches the region, a blanket of snow is expected to cover much of north-central and northeastern Minnesota away from the coastline of Lake Superior by Monday afternoon. Some areas west of the Twin Ports could see close to 6 inches of snow by Monday night with about half of that likely to accumulate along the Iron Range. Even lesser totals are expected in the Twin Ports.
With the exception of the South Shore, precipitation will remain as rain in northwestern Wisconsin as temperatures warm up into the upper 30s to low 40s.
As warmer air gets wrapped into the upper levels of the storm system, it's likely that icing could occur late Monday night as surface temperatures drop back down below the freezing mark.
Skies will clear out Tuesday afternoon with temperatures warming up into the low to mid 40s. This will quickly melt any ice that does accumulate for the afternoon commute.
Thanks for reading and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
