Justin Liles: Crazy warmth looks to continue
Welcome to February! After only seeing 9” of snow in January we now have a grand total for the year of 17” here in Duluth. Our current snowpack around the region is the lowest it has ever been on record entering the month of February. Even though we had some sunshine early this morning the clouds returned for the remainder of the day. This is a good thing in conserving what is left or our snowpack. However, the return of warmer conditions and sunshine heading into the weekend and much of next week looks as if our snowpack and ice will take a severe hit.
Over the next week around the Northland temperatures are going to climb well into mid to upper 40s beginning Saturday. There also isn’t much precipitation in the forecast. We may see some rain mixing with some snow by late Wednesday into Thursday. Winds will also pick up during this time too. It finally looks as if we’ll see some cooler weather around February 10th. It may start to feel like winter again for a little bit longer.
