Justin Liles: A fantastic weekend!
A steady stretch of warmer weather will hang over the Northland through the weekend and into next week. Temperatures will climb into the upper 30s to lower 40s both Saturday and Sunday. This should really continue to help remover ice and snow from the roads, driveways, sidewalks and roofs. It’s also going to make way for wonderful conditions to get outside and play.
There will be threat of a few clipper systems that may graze the international border. The first is tonight and may bring some light flurries. The second is Sunday night into Monday but looks to stay north of the border.
Our pattern will change by Tuesday afternoon, a low coming out of the Rockies will move toward the upper Midwest. We will likely start off with rain before it turns over into snow late Tuesday night into Wednesday. This looks as if it may linger into Thursday creating slick travel. As of now it appears our region may see as much as 3-6” of snow. However, any variation in the track of this low could produce more. Cooler weather returns behind next week’s system.
