Brandon Weatherz: Windy and chilly Wednesday

[anvplayer video=”5150443″ station=”998130″]

It’s a windy Wednesday. A west wind sustained near 20 mph and gusting around 40 mph will lead to patchy blowing snow through the day. Flurries linger, but additional accumulation is very light. We look near the international border for around an inch. Temperatures begin in mid-teens to mid-20s, but cooler air moving into the region will allow temps to fall a bit, with afternoon highs in mid-teens to near 20. Cloud cover gradually decreases through the day.

Tonight will be cold with temps falling into the single digits under few clouds. Winds improve through the overnight period. Tomorrow will be quiet with partly sunny skies and temps rebounding to mid-20s to near 30. Friday features our next chance for widespread accumulating snowfall arriving from the north in the afternoon and evening. The greatest chance for at least 2” of snow is found near Grand Rapids, across the Iron Range, and north of there.

Snow tapers off early Saturday, but we’re left with a cold and blustery day as highs stay in the teens. Sunday is sunny and a touch warmer, then another blast of cold air is expected next week.
