Brandon Weatherz: Welcomed warm up for the weekend
Wind Chill Warnings and Advisories are in effect until noon as wind chills approach -50 for northeast Minnesota into Douglas, Burnett, and Washburn Co., and -40 elsewhere. Highs stay near zero this afternoon, then warmer air moving in keeps lows in minus single digits tonight. We quickly warm back to 20s tomorrow, and fortunately, there isn’t another significant cool down in sight. Temps will remain near and above average from Saturday through next week.
There still isn’t much for accumulating snow in the forecast. We look north across the Arrowhead for a few snow showers late this evening and overnight. A few flurries and light snow showers will also be possible Saturday night. Monday afternoon brings the next widespread chance for snow, but it shouldn’t amount to much.
Today: Increasing clouds. High 1. SW 5-10 mph.
Tonight: Mostly cloudy. Low -2. S wind 5-15 mph.
Saturday: Mostly cloudy and warmer. High 23. SW wind 5-10 mph.
