Brandon Weatherz: Frigid for now, mild tomorrow
Our Tuesday starts with the coldest morning we’ve seen so far this season. Fortunately, there isn’t another overnight period this cold in the forecast. Kids wait at the bus stop to temps in single digits above and below zero this morning. Temps will steadily rise through the day with highs in the 20s, then temps hold rather steady overnight, keeping lows much milder in the 20s for most. Wednesday will see highs in mid to upper 30s with everyone expected to reach above freezing.
The warm front bringing relief from the bitter chill will produce some light snow today, but accumulation will be very light. Snow chances reach from the Canadian border southward across the Arrowhead beginning late this morning and into the evening. The Twin Ports is grazed the chance for a dusting, then chances become more widespread looking east from Bayfield County into the U.P. Any accumulation should stay under an inch, but slick travel is possible this evening in the areas mentioned above.
Wednesday marks the start of a more comfortable and quieter stretch that takes us through the end of the week and into the weekend. The Northland has only slight chances for snow Saturday and Sunday with the better chance staying to our south for the time being.
