Brandon Weatherz: Pleasant weekend ahead

[anvplayer video=”5158526″ station=”998130″]

With yesterday’s snow behind us, we’ll settle into a quiet stretch of weather for your weekend plans. Keeping in mind Duluth’s average low of 2° and high of 20° for this time of year, it will also be a relatively comfortable January weekend. Our Friday begins with temps once again on the mild side mostly in teens to low 20s. Highs across the Northland reach low to mid-20s. Skies will still feature more clouds than sun, but sun should peek through in the afternoon. Lows mostly in the teens and highs in mid-20s repeat Saturday and Sunday.

A chance for flurries arrives from the northwest this evening and lingers Saturday, but measurable snow is not expected. The next chance for light snow would be Monday evening and overnight. Beyond that, next week looks to continue a dry stretch allowing for a break from the shovel. Temperatures trend cooler through the week, bringing an end to a prolonged period of generally mild weather.
