StormTeam Outlook For Wednesday, February 21st, 2018
Justin Liles, Chief Meteorologist
A fast-moving area of low pressure will bring a quick burst of snow and freezing drizzle to the Northland Thursday afternoon through early Friday afternoon. The precipitation will begin in central Minnesota late Thursday afternoon and spread northeastward across the Northland during the evening. A band of heavy snow will likely develop during the pre-dawn hours of Friday morning and lift northward through northeast Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin, resulting in snow rates around 1 inch per hour. Relatively warm temperatures aloft raise the potential of freezing drizzle mixing with the snow from the pre-dawn hours of Friday morning into the early afternoon with light icing possible. The Friday morning commute will be slow due to snow and ice accumulation. The system quickly moves out of the Northland from late Friday morning through the early afternoon hours.
