Brandon Weatherz: A round of snow today and another tomorrow
Tuesday morning temps range from single digits above zero to teens below. It’s a frigid bus stop, especially for communities near the Canadian border. Highs today range from around 9 for International Falls to mid-20s for much of northwest Wisconsin.
A round of snow builds across north central and northeast Minnesota from the west this morning and exits to the east through the afternoon. Around 1-2” is possible generally near and north of U.S. Hwy 2. Amounts drop to less than an inch around the Head of Lake Superior. Much of east central Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin may stay dry altogether from this round.
Wednesday brings another round of snow, this time with the Twin Ports on the northern edge of potential for around an inch. 1-2” are possible for a swath including much of east central Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin. Amounts drop off going north with a dusting possible across the Iron Range.
Temperatures will continue to be a spread across the Northland with the coldest conditions looking northwest through Thursday morning. Thursday will bring a return to seasonable conditions. This begins a stretch of more comfortable and quiet weather that will take us through the weekend.
