Your forecast for today: We are off to another cold start this morning with many of us heading out the door to greet temperatures in the single digits and teens. Clouds will increase through the day as winds will eventually shift out of the south around 5-15 mph. These southerly winds will help to bump our afternoon temperatures up slightly, but we will still remain well below average with a high near 29 degrees. As the clouds increase we may see a few snow showers develop, especially along the North Shore and the Arrowhead region this afternoon and evening.
Tonight: We can expect overcast skies and off and on light snow showers this evening and continuing into the overnight hours. Temperatures will not be nearly as frigid thanks to the cloud cover with a low near 22 degrees. Areas along the North Shore and the Arrowhead could pick up a dusting to an inch of snow by Saturday morning.
Tomorrow: The chance of light snow showers will continue into Saturday, but temperatures will finally reach the low to mid-30s with a high near 34 degrees. Accumulations are expected to be light once again with a dusting to an inch for most areas, but this may be just what those deer hunters need. Winds will be out of the west in the morning before shifting out of the northwest late in the day behind a cold front.
Saturday’s cold front will usher in another blast of cold air with highs on Sunday back in the low to mid-20s along with mostly cloudy skies. Northerly winds will be quite gusty making those windchills feel quite brutal in the teens and single digits.
