Snow/Mix Gradually Tapers Off, Quieter Weekend 

Scattered light snow and wintry mix with drizzle at times will linger across the Northland through the day, gradually thinning out. Snow chances linger along the South Shore Saturday with a northerly wind directing cooler air across Lake Superior. Additional accumulation in this area will be 1-2" with up to 3" locally. Less than an additional inch is expected for the rest of the Northland. Temperatures hold steady in low to mid 30s today.

Cloudy skies remain tonight with temperatures staying in the 20s, then we top off in mid to upper 20s Saturday under continuing cloudy conditions. A few light snow showers may redevelop in Northwest Wisconsin Saturday night. Sun peaks through a bit on Sunday with more mid 20s achieved. Martin Luther King Jr. Day features more clouds and a few flurries, then colder air moving in Tuesday presents more lake effect chances for the South Shore. There's a slight chance for a widespread shot of snow Wednesday.

Today: Cloudy and breezy with scattered light snow and drizzle. Temperatures hold steady around 33. NE wind 10-20 mph.

Tonight: Cloudy and blustery. Low 23. N wind 10-15 mph.

Saturday: Overcast. High 25. NW wind 5-10 mph.

Sunday: Mix of clouds and sun. High 25. N wind 5-15 mph.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day: Mostly cloudy with a slight chance for light snow showers. High 22.

Tuesday: Mostly cloudy. High 17.

Wednesday: Mostly cloudy with a chance for snow. High 26.

Thursday: Partly cloudy. High 25.
