Justin Liles: Periods of rain this week

It looks as if we’re in for several chance of rain or snow this week. Several pieces of energy will work its way across the International Border. Temperatures profiles will look to remain warm enough for mostly rain. Snow may get started up north tonight with falling temperatures. We won’t see accumulation but roads from Ely to Grand Marais could be slick come Tuesday morning. Light snow will then shift to parts of the south shore overnight and then the head of the lake tomorrow when winds shift off the lake.

Widespread snow looks to take over tomorrow afternoon and go through Wednesday. There is a winter weather advisory that has been issued for the higher terrain of the north shore where some localized heavier amounts are possible. Temperatures will continue to remain in the above freezing range, so a wintry mix is expected. Mild conditions will spill into the weekend. Minnesota and Wisconsin get to deer hunt this weekend. Heading into next week our temperatures look as if we might be heading to warmer than average.
