[anvplayer video=”5161793″ station=”998130″]

Areas of freezing fog have set up this morning, leading to poor visibility and icy patches for our morning commute. Subfreezing temps following yesterday’s snowmelt also contributes to ice that may creep up on you this morning. Allow time to keep plenty of distance between vehicles and have headlights on. Fog gradually improves through the morning with mostly cloudy skies remaining.

A cold front passing today will be responsible for gusty north northwest winds, a few flurries or light snow showers, and the arrival of cooler air. Highs still manage to reach low to mid-30s. By tonight, temps fall to minus single digits near and north of the Iron Range under partly cloudy skies with northwest winds remaining blustery. Lows stay in single digits for the Twin Ports, and parts of the South Shore stay in the teens due to lingering lake effect clouds and snow. This are will see a localized 1-3” by Friday morning.

High pressure moves in Friday to supply plenty of sunshine. After a cooler start to the day, highs remain cooler but seasonable in the 20s. A breezy southwest wind will usher us back into mid-30s to low 40s on Saturday with sun. Mild and dry weather continues through the start of next week.
