Quiet weather should continue most of the week, but later this weekend things could change just a bit as a larger trough/area of low pressure swings E/NE out of the Rockies. This system could bring a variety of precipitation types to northeast Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin from Sunday through Tuesday (March 4-6) Stay tuned.
What a nice day! Highs today climbed well into the 30s with even some 40s mixed in, these temperatures are a good 10-20 degrees warmer than normal for late February. Sunshine was seen in our area today but there’s also been some passing mid to high level clouds at times. Surface map this afternoon featured high pressure over the Ohio Valley with low pressure to our northwest over the central Manitoba Province area — Mild southwesterly winds covered the upper Midwest today between the high and low pressure systems.
Partly to mostly cloudy skies for tonight with lows in the teens to lower 20s but it’s possible a few spots could dip into the single digits. An area of low pressure will remain off to our north tonight while a cold front sweeps through the Northland.
High pressure builds east out of the northern Plains for Tuesday resulting in partly to mostly cloudy skies in our area. Mild temperatures will continue with highs in the 30s to lower 40s.
Note: Temperatures in some parts of the Northland were 45 to nearly 50 degrees warmer this afternoon compared to the morning low temperature. Wow! See stats below.
