Brandon Weatherz: Morning snow gives way to afternoon sunshine
Our Tuesday begins with a round of snow moving across the Northland. Light accumulation has brought slippery stretches to be mindful of for the morning commute. Snow showers taper off from west to east through the morning. Cloud cover follows with clearing skies through the afternoon. Temperatures take a swing at 32 for the first time in nearly two weeks.
A lack of cloud cover overnight may allow areas of dense fog to set up by the Wednesday morning commute. Lows will be in mid to upper teens. Fog may prove to be stubborn, but mostly sunny skies will try to take over Wednesday afternoon. With that said, visibility may be an issue for holiday travel. Thursday will be a gray day with cloudy skies and a slight chance for freezing drizzle. Be mindful of the potential for ice on roads. Temperatures on Thursday will be back in low to mid-30s.
Post-holiday travel currently looks to be pleasant. Friday through the weekend should feature a quiet stretch with temps near to just above average.
