Here’s an update on the late week system — Doesn’t look like a major storm for northeast Minnesota or northwest Wisconsin per current model data. Most of the precipitation should be on the light side, and probably in the form of rain as temperatures look warm enough to support more liquid vs. frozen precipitation. The exception to this might be in far northeast Minnesota where a few inches of snow is possible on Friday.
21z HRRR model visibility forecast valid at 6 AM Tuesday
Low clouds over western and central Minnesota late this afternoon will expand northeast into northeast Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin tonight.
Low pressure approaching from the west will maintain a milder/southerly flow across our area through Tuesday night. The increasing amounts of moisture combined with the warmer air moving over our snow pack will lead to low clouds, some fog and drizzle for tonight and Tuesday. A cold front attached to the surface low will sweep through the Northland Tuesday night with a colder northwest flow for Wednesday. There could also be some flurries or snow showers around the area on Wednesday.
Lows tonight will range from the mid 20s to mid 30s with highs Tuesday in the mid 30s to mid 40s. Highs Wednesday will be in the upper 20s to mid 30s.
