Justin Liles: Cold tonight, warm through the weekend
Skies will continue to clear tonight with an area of high pressure moving across the International Border. Due to recent snowfall and calm winds, temperatures are expected to drop below zero for a good portion of the Northland north of the Twin Ports. Otherwise, looks for the rest of the region to hang in the lower single digits or zero.
Warm southerly flow will take over and warm us up through the weekend. Temperatures are likely to climb into the low to mid 30s Saturday and Sunday. Another quick moving clipper will pass through Saturday night into Sunday. As of now it looks like freezing drizzle is possible followed by a dusting up to an inch.
The big weather story is the large low set to dig the Pacific Northwest and then deepen as it comes out of the Rockies next week. This could potentially become a large snowstorm across the upper Midwest. Minnesota and Wisconsin could take the brunt of this. Blizzard like conditions along with heavy snow are the biggest threats as of now. The track of this will be key as to what we get. This may become larger and last through the end of next week, as it appears to slow down right over Minnesota. Please stay tuned and keep a close eye on our updated details.
