Sabrina Ullman: Multiple chances of snow this week
Tonight will be mostly cloudy with overnight lows in the twenties. A calm wind will become south after midnight. Quiet weather will soon end as we have a chance of snow most days this week.
The first round will be limited to northern Minnesota. Light snow will move in Monday morning and continue on and off throughout the day. The far northern portion of Koochiching County will be the outlier for this round with 1-2 inches of accumulation. Northern Carlton and Aitkin counties and areas north will have under an inch of accumulation. The rest of the region will not have accumulating snow on Monday.
If you are missing out on snow Monday, just wait until Tuesday- round two of snow will focus on Wisconsin and the U.P. A Winter Storm Watch has been issued for northern Wisconsin, effective from 6 am Tuesday until 6 am Wednesday. Pine County is also under a Winter Storm Watch from 6 am Tuesday until 12 am Wednesday.
Forecast models have been in disagreement for Tuesday’s weather maker, with uncertainty for both timing and amounts. The morning commute will possibly be slick for the areas under a Winter Storm Watch, and the evening commute will most likely be impacted by snow.
Additional lake-effect snow is possible for the Snow Belt of the South Shore on Wednesday. Later this week, there is a chance of snow Friday and another chance Sunday.
