Sabrina Ullman: Much better week ahead as temperatures warm
Tonight will be mostly cloudy with steady temperatures in the low single digits. A southwest wind of 5-10 mph could have gusts as high as 20 mph. Light snow is possible for portions of the Northland late tonight, lasting into Tuesday. The vast majority of the area will see under an inch of accumulation, but areas close to the international border could have 1-3 inches.
Overall, this week will be mostly quiet and have much warmer temperatures. We start our week around 20 degrees below normal. Starting Wednesday, we will be 10-15 degrees above climatological normal as afternoon highs reach a couple of degrees below or above freezing.
Tuesday will begin with snow for areas far north becoming sleet midday. Cloudy skies will persist for the next several days. Afternoon highs will be in the twenties.
There is another chance of snow Wednesday night into Thursday. As temperatures stay close to freezing, we could see a wintry mix rather than just snow. Areas near Hayward will likely have rain. Friday will be dry, and then we have another chance of snow on New Year’s Eve.
