Sabrina Ullman: Cold front moving through
Snow has started to enter the region and will continue moving eastward tonight. As this system moves through, snow squalls are possible. This would greatly reduce visibility and worsen road conditions quickly due to a higher snowfall rate.
Although travel will likely be impacted this evening, conditions will clear by morning. Accumulations will be mostly under an inch, with more likely for areas of the South Shore.
The cold front that is bringing this snow will also have gusty northwest winds continuing through the night. Overnight lows will be in the single digits for areas southwest of the Twin Ports.
Monday will be sunny with afternoon highs close to 20 degrees. Lingering lake-effect snow is likely for Iron and Gogebic Counties.
Any snow that falls will melt quickly as temperatures reach the 30s again starting Tuesday. A few locations south of Hayward may reach 40 degrees Wednesday, and afternoon highs will be close to 40 south of the Twin Ports by Friday.
There is a chance of rain Thursday night that may have freezing drizzle mix in. There is also a chance of precipitation on Christmas Eve. Right now, it is looking like it will be rain rather than snow, but it is a bit early to determine with certainty. Chances of a White Christmas are slim.
A chance of snow before 1am, then a chance of flurries between 1am and 2am. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 11. Windy, with a northwest wind 15 to 25 mph, with gusts as high as 35 mph. Chance of precipitation is 50%. New snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible.
Partly sunny, then gradually becoming sunny, with a high near 21. Blustery, with a northwest wind 10 to 20 mph, with gusts as high as 30 mph.
