Brandon Weatherz: Snow and mix to bring a slick evening commute
Our Monday begins with a spread of temps across the Northland from chillier minus single digits to milder teens. It shapes up to be a mild day with a breezy southeast wind and increasing cloud cover. Highs reach upper 20s to mid-30s. Wintry mix and snow arrives in the late afternoon and continues into the overnight, bringing slick travel for the evening commute. A light glaze of ice is possible, particularly in northwest Wisconsin. Widespread snow will move east by early tomorrow morning with a few light snow showers lingering. The Twin Ports and most areas should see around an inch or two. The highest amounts will be locally along the North Shore where up to 4” is possible.
This round of snow is the only widespread accumulating event currently in the forecast. A few light snow showers are possible Thursday, but the greater impacts from that system will stay south and east of the Northland. Temperatures will continue to be on the mild side overall. The warmth peaks Wednesday with highs in mid to upper 30s. We’ll end the week a touch cooler with highs in the 20s on Friday. The coldest night will be Friday night into Saturday with lows in single digits above and below zero, then a warming trend pushes us back near and above freezing by Sunday.
