Friday and Friday Night (November 1)

A powerful area of low pressure will move from Lake Huron to Northern Quebec during this period.  A northwest flow will be found behind this storm over the Upper Midwest with an upper level disturbance/trough moving SE into the region.  This weak feature could trigger a few showers at times, otherwise expect mostly cloudy skies to continue.  Highs will mainly be in the 40s with lows in the 20s and 30s.  Northwest winds are expected at 10 to 20 mph.

Extended Forecast – Confidence:  High.

Saturday through Monday (November 2-4)

Spotty rain or snow showers are possible in our area on Saturday.  Sunday looks like the nicer day of the weekend, in fact we may actually get to see the sun.  The next system approaches the Upper Midwest on Monday with the possibility for some rain showers at that time.

High temperatures on Saturday will be in the 30s and 40s.  Highs on Sunday will be in the 40s to around 50 degrees in Western/Southern areas to the 30s and 40s along the North Shore and Arrowhead.  Highs on Monday will be in the 40s.  Lows Saturday Night will be in the 20s and 30s.  Lows Sunday Night will be in the 30s and 40s.

Long Range Forecast – Confidence:  Medium.

(November 5-10)

A deep upper level trough will be passing through the Plains and Upper Midwest next Tuesday/Wednesday (5th-6th)  Along with this upper trough could be a deepening surface low that tracks N/NE out of the Southern/Central Plains.  This system could bring some rain and possibly some snow to the Northland next Tuesday and Wednesday.  Stay tuned.  Another system could affect the area toward the 9th-10th with perhaps another round of rain or snow.  Near average temperatures are expected during this period.

October 30, 2013 – Weather Report. Foggy/gloomy; Little bit of rain Tonight.

/Issued 3:46 PM CDT, Wednesday, October 30, 2013/

*Having fun with MS paint Today.

*Image below is from the unisys.com site and shows the water vapor satellite image from 3:30 PM Today.

*Disturbance over Central South Dakota and an upper trough covering the Rockies.  A very moist and mild SW flow extends from North Texas to the Central Great Lakes with t’storms firing up from Iowa and Illinois, south to Texas.  The deep moisture shown as brighter white colors on this map is and will remain south/east of Minnesota Tonight so the chances for significant precipitation are quite low here in Minnesota.  Will still get some rain though at times Tonight, might even be a stray t’storm or two.

Today’s Weather Summary for Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin

A broad area of low pressure averaging 1006-1010mb covered the Central Plains Today.  Moisture flowing north ahead of this system led to widespread low clouds, fog, and drizzle in the Northland Today with scattered rain showers also occurring at times.  Highs were in the upper 30s to middle 40s with light winds.

Forecast Discussion for Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin

Short Term Forecast – Confidence:  High.

Tonight (October 30)

Low pressure will move into Southwest Wisconsin by daybreak.  Mostly cloudy skies will continue Tonight with drizzle, fog, and some rain showers at times.  There is a little bit of elevated instability over Eastern Minnesota and Northern Wisconsin with CAPE of around 200 j/kg Tonight so this could lead to an isolated thunderstorm or two in those areas.  Low temperatures will be in the 30s and 40s with winds out of the south, east, or west at 5 to 15 mph.

*Rainfall totals Tonight won’t be impressive in the Northland with amounts generally ranging from a trace to around 0.25″ in a few spots.  (Source, 18z – 1 PM HRRR model run)















Thursday and Thursday Night (October 31)

Low pressure will deepen to around 990-993mb during the day Thursday as it lifts northeast out of Southwest/Central Wisconsin.  This low deepens further Thursday Night with pressures dropping to between 980-984mb as it reaches Eastern Canada.  Rain chances have decreased considerably over the Northland Tomorrow, still can’t rule out some patchy drizzle or showers here and there, but I think most of us will be dry.  There won’t be much clearing though with a considerable amount of cloudiness remaining over the area.  Highs will be in the 40s with lows generally in the 30s.  Winds will be out of the west or northwest at 5 to 15 mph.

Extended Forecast – Confidence:  High.

Friday through Sunday (November 1-3)

Flow aloft turns NW once again Friday and Saturday before becoming more westerly on Sunday.  Spotty rain showers could occur at times Friday and Saturday with mainly dry weather expected on Sunday.  Highs will mainly be in the 40s during this period with lows Friday Night in the 30s and in the 20s and 30s Saturday Night.

Long Range Forecast – Confidence:  Medium.

(November 4-9)

Could see some precipitation between the 4th-6th, at the moment it does look too warm for any snow, so rain would be the main P-TYPE based on latest model data.  Near average temperatures are forecast through this period.

Today’s Weather Summary for Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin

Light snow made it farther north than what I was expecting 24 hours ago.  The snow line basically ran from Longville to between Duluth and Two Harbors, most of the snow was very light and generally in the form of snow flurries, but there were a few brief heavier snow showers.  Little if any accumulation occurred Today with the snow melting on contact.  Sky conditions varied between mostly sunny north of the Iron Range to overcast south of the Range.  High temperatures were in the 30s to around 40 degrees.  Winds were out of the south or east at 5 to 15 mph.

October 28, 2013 – Weather Report. Chill lingers thru Tuesday; Halloween storm brings rain to the Northland – severe t’storm risk to the Central Plains.

/Issued 3:41 PM CDT, Monday, October 28, 2013/

Here’s one for all you Packer fans!  Go Pack Go!!!  

-Were looking at a rain storm, not a snow storm for Wednesday Evening into Thursday.  Rainfall amounts could reach or exceed 0.50″ over much of the Northland during the Wednesday PM/Thursday time frame.  (Source, Weather Prediction Center)













Today’s Weather Summary for Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin

Another shot of cold air oozed into the Northland Today with strong high pressure averaging 1038mb over Southeast Saskatchewan.  Sunny to mostly sunny skies were common This Afternoon except along the South Shore of Lake Superior and also around the head of Lake Superior where lake effect clouds with scattered flurries/snow showers occurred Today thanks to the NE wind in place along with 850mb temperatures of around -8C while lake water temperatures remained in the mid 40s.  Winds Today were out of the north or east at 5 to 15 mph with higher gusts near Lake Superior.

Forecast Discussion for Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin

Short Term Forecast – Confidence:  High.

Tonight (October 28)

Partly to mostly cloudy skies will continue as high pressure pushes into the Upper Midwest.  Could still see some scattered snow flakes at times closer to Lake Superior but this won’t be a big deal.  Lows will be in the 20s to lower 30s with a few teens in far Northern Minnesota.  North or east winds are forecast at 5 to 15 mph.

Tuesday and Tuesday Night (October 29)

Partly to mostly cloudy skies will continue this period with high pressure to our north while a vigorous upper level trough along with an area of low pressure track through the Rockies and out into the Plains by daybreak Wednesday.

A little bit of snow or mixed rain/snow could affect Southern portions of the Northland Tomorrow and Tomorrow Night, but this precipitation should remain on the light side with maybe a dusting of slush on lawns.  The best chance for seeing this light precip would be along and south of a Brainerd – Moose Lake – Hayward line.  It should remain dry over Northern Minnesota, including the Iron Range, North Shore, and Arrowhead.

Highs Tomorrow will be in the 30s to lower 40s.  Lows Tomorrow Night will be in the 20s and 30s.  Winds will be out of the south or east at 5 to 15 mph.

Extended Forecast – Confidence:  High.

Wednesday through Friday (October 30-November 1)

Low pressure is forecast to move northeast out of the Central Plains and into the Upper Great Lakes region from Wednesday into Thursday.  Latest model data shows the low deepening to between 982-990mb during the day Thursday as it passes east of our area.  An upper level trough will also head into the Upper Midwest by Thursday and this trough may go negatively tilted later this week which usually is an indication of a deepening storm system.

The Northland will get some precipitation starting Wednesday Evening and lasting into Thursday.  Still looks warm enough for rain and there could even be an isolated thunderstorm or two, especially over East Central Minnesota and Northern Wisconsin.

Scattered rain showers could linger Thursday Night into Friday with a few flakes of snow possibly mixing with the rain in Northern Minnesota by Friday.

High temperatures on Wednesday and Thursday will be in the 40s with even a few 50s possible in Northwest Wisconsin.  Highs on Friday will be in the 30s and 40s.  Lows Wednesday Night and Thursday Night will be in the 30s and 40s.

*Surface map for Thursday Morning, October 31, 2013.  Low pressure should move into Western Wisconsin Halloween Morning, probably between Eau Claire and La Crosse.  Severe weather is possible south of the warm front (red line on the map) and ahead of the cold front (blue line on the map) rainy west/north of the low (L) on the map.  (Source, Weather Prediction Center)














*Severe thunderstorm forecast for Wednesday.  A large portion of the Central Plains from Iowa to Texas is in a risk area for severe thunderstorms with hail, high winds, and isolated tornadoes all possible.  This threat area shifts slightly more to the east on Halloween.  (Source, NWS/Storm Prediction Center)















Long Range Forecast – Confidence:  High.

(November 2-7)

Near to below average temperatures are forecast during this period.  A few snow or rain showers are possible on Saturday (2nd)  A new storm system moves through the Upper Midwest from the 3rd-4th, doesn’t look like much precipitation will occur with this low, but some rain showers could occur especially next Monday (4th)  Note:  I’m not seeing any signs of a decent snowfall anywhere in the Northland through the 1st week of November.

5 DAY FORECAST FOR DULUTH/SUPERIOR
