*The Climate Prediction Center is still calling for enhanced odds for above average precipitation in much of Minnesota during January 2013.

*There’s also a warmer bias showing up for January 2013.  Climate Prediction Center is forecasting above average temperatures in all but Northern Minnesota where average temperatures are expected.  This fits well with the LRC which shows a couple cold shots and some impressive warm-ups, with the biggest warm spell occurring before mid-month.

Today’s Weather Summary for Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin

Arctic high pressure of 1026mb was building into Minnesota Today.  Skies were sunny to partly cloudy in the Northland with a cold final day of 2012.  High temperatures were in the single digits and teens with north or west winds at 5 to around 20 mph.

*61.9% of the U.S. is covered by snow as of December 31, 2012.  This is up from 13.3% in late November and up from 18.9% at this time last year.

2012 Dec. 31 snow depth map.

*2011 Dec. 31 snow depth map.

Today’s Upper Level Analysis:

One hell of a potent jet stream on the upper air charts Today, this thing stretches from Texas up to New England with wind speeds ranging from 130-160 knots, wow!  Seeing a NW flow across the Upper Midwest Today with 850mb temperatures as of 3 PM ranging from -16 to -20C in Central and Northern Minnesota to -12 to -14C in Southern Minnesota.

Forecast Discussion for Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin

Short Term – Confidence:  High.

Tonight (December 31st)

Very cold temperatures are likely with lows in the teens and 20s below zero.  Mostly clear skies are forecast with winds from the west or northwest at 5 to 15 mph.  Dangerously cold wind chills of 20 to 30 below will develop This Evening and persist Overnight.  Make sure you bundle up if you plan to be outdoors Tonight.

Tuesday and Tuesday Night (January 1st)

The new year will start off on the chilly side.  Partly cloudy skies are forecast this period with arctic high pressure moving off to our south/east.  Highs on Tuesday will be in the single digits and teens with lows Tuesday Night ranging from around 5 below to the teens above zero.  Winds will turn to the south this period at 10 to 15 mph.

Extended Forecast – Confidence:  High.

Wednesday through Friday (January 2nd-4th)

A clipper system will track north of our area on Wednesday, this system should bring some snow showers and flurries to Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin with 1″ or less of accumulation expected.  Thursday-Friday are looking mainly dry at this time, but lake effect snow showers could affect the South Shore of Lake Superior in Northwest Wisconsin from Wednesday Night into Thursday with a couple inches of accumulation possible, especially from the Gogebic Range, to Hurley and Gile.

High temperatures will be in the teens and 20s on Wednesday and Friday with single digits and teens for Thursday.  Low temperatures Wednesday Night will range from around 10 below to 10 above with lows Thursday Night in the single digits below to low teens above zero.

Long Range Forecast – Confidence:  High.

(January 5th-10th)

This period looks pretty mild at this time with temperatures mostly above average.  A parade of clippers will stay north of our area giving Manitoba and Ontario some accumulating snowfall from time to time.  Only flurries or snow showers can be expected this far south.  There are signs showing up of a system approaching the Upper Midwest from the Western U.S. toward the middle-end of next week, or from the 9th-11th, but with the mild air in place we may be dealing with precipitation type issues should this system affect the Upper Midwest.

Today’s Weather Summary for Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin

There’s a weak cold front moving southeast through the Northland Today, this front kept some flurries and snow showers going in our area, but accumulations if any have been very minimal.  High temperatures were in the teens to lower 20s with winds out of the southwest or northwest at 10 to 15 mph.

Today’s Upper Level Analysis:

A northwest flow covered the Upper Midwest Today while an upper trough moves east into the Rockies per water vapor satellite imagery.  850mb temperatures as of 3 PM ranged from -6 to -10C in Western and Southern Minnesota to -12 to -16C in Central and Northern Minnesota.

Forecast Discussion for Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin

Short Term – Confidence:  High.

Tonight (December 29th)

Scattered snow showers and flurries will persist This Evening, and then mainly dry for the Overnight hours.  Partly to mostly cloudy skies are forecast and it will be a cold one as low temperatures drop into the 5 above to 15 below range.  Winds will be from the northwest or southwest at around 10 mph.

Sunday and Sunday Night (December 30th)

Low pressure passes north of Minnesota this period with a warm front and cold front connected to this low passing through our area.  Light snow and flurries could affect Northern Minnesota on Sunday with accumulations less than 1″.  Sunday Night could feature some flurries or light snow showers throughout the Northland as cold air moves in.  High temperatures on Sunday will be in the teens and 20s.  Lows Sunday Night will range from zero to 20 below in Northern Minnesota to the single digits and teens above zero in Northwest Wisconsin.  Southerly winds Tomorrow will turn to the northwest Tomorrow Night at 10 to 20 mph.

Extended Forecast – Confidence:  Medium.

Monday through Wednesday (December 31st-January 2nd)

A few flurries are possible on Monday with high temperatures only in the single digits below to around 10 above zero.  Low temperatures Monday Night should tank into the 10 below to 25 below range with mainly dry conditions.  Tuesday and Wednesday could feature some snow showers and flurries at times as two clipper systems affect the Upper Midwest.  Highs on Tuesday and Wednesday will be in the single digits and teens with lows Tuesday Night ranging from around 5 above to 15 below.

Note:  There is a potential for some accumulating snowfall, especially on Wednesday but the exact details are somewhat uncertain.  The most likely area that could pick up a few inches of snow looks to be along the South Shore of Lake Superior in Northwest Wisconsin, but this may also extend as far west as the Twin Ports and up toward Two Harbors.

Long Range Forecast – Confidence:  High.

(January 3rd-8th)

Looks mainly dry from the 3rd-5th.  Chances for some light snow could return at times between the 6th-8th as more clipper like systems move southeast out of Western Canada.  Below average temperatures are forecast on the 3rd and 4th with near to above average temperatures forecast from the 5th-8th.

5 DAY FORECAST FOR DULUTH/SUPERIOR

.Tonight…  Flurries and snow showers at times early.  Considerable cloudiness with skies becoming mostly clear later on.  Low 0 to 5 below.  Wind west around 10 mph.

A little more snow Tonight-Saturday; Greatest amounts northeast of Duluth; 2 shots of arctic air for next week.

/Issued 4:03 PM CST, Friday, December 28th, 2012/

-Snow depth map valid the Morning of December 28, 2012 per Midwest Regional Climate Center. 

Some decent snow depths showing up in Northeast Minnesota, especially along the North Shore and into the Arrowhead.  Might be a good weekend to head north to do some skiing or snowmobiling.


Today’s Weather Summary for Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin

A couple areas of high pressure were off to our west/north Today while a trough or two covered the Upper Midwest.  Light snow and flurries were common Today, especially around Lake Superior where some heavier snow showers continued as well, especially northeast of Two Harbors.  Snowfall accumulations of 3-8″ have been reported along the North Shore of Lake Superior with amounts of 2″ or less common over the remainder of the Northland.  Skies were partly sunny to mostly cloudy Today with high temperatures in the teens and 20s.  Winds were out of the east, north, or west at 5 to 15 mph.

-24 hour snowfall map ending the Morning of December 28, 2012.  Heaviest totals were in two areas…Southern Minnesota and in Northeast Minnesota.

Today’s Upper Level Analysis:

A westerly flow was in place across the Upper Midwest per water vapor satellite imagery and RAP model analysis with two disturbances passing through the region Today.  850mb temperatures as of 3 PM were right around -12C in Minnesota.

Forecast Discussion for Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin

Short Term – Confidence:  High.

Tonight (December 28th)

Snow showers and flurries will continue Tonight, especially near Lake Superior.  Some of the snow showers could be heavy at times, mainly along the North Shore, or from around Two Harbors, to Silver Bay, Lutsen, and Grand Marais.  Partly to mostly cloudy skies are forecast with lows in the single digits and teens, but some Western/Northern locales could dip below zero if skies clear out enough later Tonight.  Winds will be from the north or west at 5 to 15 mph.

*Note:  A winter weather advisory remains in effect for Northern Lake and Cook Counties in Northeast Minnesota until 10 AM Saturday.  And for Southern Lake County in Northeast Minnesota until 4 AM Saturday.  (NWS Duluth)

Saturday and Saturday Night (December 29th)

Snow showers and flurries look to continue on Saturday with the greatest concentration found along the North Shore and Arrowhead regions.  Looks dry for Saturday Night.  Partly to mostly cloudy skies are expected this period with highs Tomorrow in the teens and 20s.  Lows Tomorrow Night will range from around 10 below to 10 above.  Winds from the west on Saturday will turn more southerly Saturday Night at 5 to 15 mph.

Extended Forecast – Confidence:  High.

Sunday through Tuesday (December 30th-January 1st)

The mildest day will be Sunday, after that will have to deal with another shot of cold air for Monday and Tuesday.  An area of low pressure is forecast to track along the Ontario-Minnesota border on Sunday with a cold front dropping SE through the Northland, this front and low could bring a few snow showers and flurries to Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin from Sunday into early Monday.  Looks mainly dry then for Monday Night and Tuesday.

High temperatures will be in the teens and 20s on Sunday with single digits and teens expected for Monday and Tuesday.  Lows Sunday Night will range from around 5 below to 15 above.  Lows Monday Night will be in the single digits to around 20 below.

Long Range Forecast – Confidence:  High.

(January 2nd-7th)

The trend of no major storms continue into early January.  The biggest attention grabber will be the arctic shot of air that is forecast to hit on the 2nd-3rd, moderating temperatures will then occur from the 4th-7th with near to even above average temperatures expected by next weekend the way it looks now.  May have to deal with the occasional weak clipper system which could dust the Northland with snow, but again there won’t be any big storms in our area just yet.

5 DAY FORECAST FOR DULUTH/SUPERIOR

.Tonight…  Light snow and flurries at times.  Considerable cloudiness.  Low 10 to 15.  Wind variable around 10 mph.  Snowfall accumulations less than 1″.

Forecast Discussion for Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin

Short Term – Confidence:  High.

Tonight through Friday Night (December 27th-28th)

Light snow and flurries will occur at times through this period due to an upper level trough which will move into the Upper Midwest.  Cold temperatures rushing over Lake Superior combined with smaller meso-scale features will continue to produce lake effect snow showers along the North and South Shore of Lake Superior.  The snow bands will likely diminish at times, and then reorganize once again.  Some of these snow showers could be heavy at times.  Mostly cloudy skies are expected this period with low temperatures Tonight and Friday Night in the teens and lower 20s, but some single digits are possible especially in far Northern Minnesota.  Highs on Friday will be in the teens and 20s.  Winds will be out of the east, north, or west at 5 to 10 mph.

Total snowfall accumulations by Friday Night:

4-8″ from Two Harbors-Silver Bay-Lutsen-and Grand Marais with locally higher amounts possible, especially between Silver Bay and Grand Marais.

2-5″ in Northern Bayfield County in Northwest Wisconsin, including the cities of Port Wing, Cornucopia and Bayfield.

A dusting to 2″ for the Iron Range, Highway 2 corridor, the Twin Ports, Brainerd Lakes, I-35 corridor, and most of Northwest Wisconsin.

Note:  A winter weather advisory remains in effect for Southern Lake County in Northeast Minnesota until Noon Friday.  Bayfield County in Northwest Wisconsin is also under a winter weather advisory until Noon Friday per National Weather Service Duluth.

Extended Forecast – Confidence:  High.

Saturday through Monday (December 29th-31st)

Flurries or snow showers could persist into Saturday with dry weather for Saturday Night.  Another system could bring some flurries or snow showers to Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin for Sunday and Monday.  High temperatures will be in the teens and 20s Saturday and Sunday with single digits and teens for Monday.  Low temperatures Saturday Night will range from around 10 below to 5 above.  Lows Sunday Night are forecast to be in the single digits below to around 10 above.

Long Range Forecast – Confidence:  High.

(January 1st-6th)

Near to below average temperatures are forecast from the 1st-3rd with temperatures at or above normal from the 4th-6th.  This period looks pretty tranquil at least in the major storm department, but we could get hit by a weak clipper or two which could dust the area with snow.
