…Light snow developing Today and Tonight…
-A minor snow event is expected over the Northland as weak low pressure swings northeast out of the Rockies and into the Eastern Great Lakes by early Monday Morning. A few disturbances will also be moving northeast through the Upper Midwest Today and Tonight. These features combined with some weak warm air advection should result in some measurable snow across Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin during the next 12-15 hours.
-This will not be a huge storm, but a few inches of snow is expected with the greatest amounts along the North Shore of Lake Superior due to some lake enhancement as winds turn south/southeast later Today and This Evening. The other area with higher snowfall amounts will be over Northwest Wisconsin, mainly southeast of Superior.
-If you do have travel plans across the area Today or Tonight be sure to slow down and allow plenty of extra time to reach your destination as roads may be snow covered and icy.
-The National Weather Service in Duluth has continued the *WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY* for Southern Lake and Southern Cook County in Northeast Minnesota and for all of Northwest Wisconsin including the Counties of Douglas, Bayfield, Ashland, Iron, Burnett, Washburn, Sawyer, and Price. This advisory is in effect through 6 AM CST Monday.
