Brandon Weatherz: Quieter and more comfortable week ahead

[anvplayer video=”5149048″ station=”998130″]

The week ahead is much quieter than the last. Temperatures will also trend closer to average. This warming trend is well earned considering that Duluth’s official temperature has not been above 32 since November 10th! Highs stay in mid-20s to near 30 today, then tomorrow is when we take a swing toward 32 and likely break our subfreezing stretch. Highs will then consistently be near normal in the mid-30s each day for the rest of the week and the weekend.

There isn’t much for precipitation in the current forecast. A round of snow will fill out northern Minnesota after about midnight tonight and try to reach about as far south as the Twin Ports. A dusting to a half inch is expected by the Tuesday morning commute with amounts generally increasing moving north toward the international border. This round tapers off Tuesday morning. After that, there’s a slight chance for light snow or wintry mix on Thanksgiving Day, but widespread impactful precipitation isn’t likely at this time. The weather should cooperate rather nicely with travel around the holiday.
