December 29: A little snow expected this weekend

Daily forecast from the Storm Track Weather Team

Our Friday begins with areas of freezing fog leading to reduced visibility and icy patches on roads. This has been most widespread from near Brainerd to Hibbing to International Falls. Fog will gradually clear through the morning with sunshine taking over today. It’s the last day of our unseasonably warm stretch with highs back in mid-30s to low 40s. Tonight is partly cloudy with temps staying in the 20s.

A passing cold front keeps highs in mid-20s to low 30s on Saturday. It will otherwise be mostly cloudy with scattered snow showers arriving from the northwest through the afternoon. Snow focuses on northwest Wisconsin Saturday night and lingers for the South Shore Sunday. 1-3” is expected across northwest Wisconsin, while the Twin Ports and much of northeast Minnesota sees a dusting to an inch.

Even the South Shore snowbelt should see quiet conditions arrive by Sunday evening for New Year’s Eve celebrations. Temps fall into the low to mid-teens Sunday night into Monday morning. Temps rebound on the first day of 2024 with sunshine and highs in the 30s.
