Now We Eye the Weekend!

The weekend weather that lies in front of us is still creating many questions.   We are going to see two waves of snow this weekend.  The first will be late Friday and the second and potentially much larger snow will be Saturday night into Sunday.

Here is What We Know Now!

  • A large storm will move through Upper Midwest or Great Lakes region late Saturday into Sunday.
  • Right now the biggest potential for snowfall looks to be through parts of Northwest Wisconsin & the U.P. of Michigan.  As much 6 inches or more of snow is possible.  Counties include Price, Iron, Ashland and Gogebic counties.
  • The American Birkebeiner will likely see a wintry mix with some freezing drizzle and rain during the race.

What We Don't Know!

  • The exact track is still yet to be determined and could have major implications on snowfall totals and locations.
  • The Minnesota Hockey Tournaments at AMSOIL AREANA should be OK as long as the current track stays and doesn't shift.  There will be snowfall now and only 2-4" are possible.  Roads could become slick.

Please continue to monitor the forecast as traveling will become an issue this weekend, especially Saturday, with so many events taking place this weekend.  Again, the track of this next storm is still uncertain and the worst looks to come late Saturday night into Sunday.
