12z European Ensemble model from March 10, 2018. Still looking for a prolonged period of mild temperatures around here, but not seeing much hope for that anytime soon. Yes will get a day or two of near 40 degree temperatures through next week but overall the pattern is a cool one through the next week or two.
22z HRRR model simulated radar forecast valid through 11 AM CDT Sunday.
Looks like will see a little bit of snow in parts of northeast Minnesota and far northwest Wisconsin by later tonight with this snow dissipating Sunday morning, before Noon.
There was quite a bit of sunshine in the Northland earlier in the day but clouds have been on the increase from west to east this afternoon with only far northeast Minnesota and eastern portions of northwest Wisconsin hanging on to mostly clear skies late this afternoon. Highs today were mainly in the 30s. Surface map early this evening had a trough over the eastern Dakotas/western Minnesota area with high pressure of 1026 over the northern Rockies with another area of high pressure stretching from Ontario Province south through the central Great Lakes.
The main story through Tuesday will be the continuation of high pressure which will remain in control of our weather, but there is a weak trough that will affect the upper Midwest tonight into Sunday morning which will bring some snow showers and flurries to parts of the Northland but snowfall amounts should remain less than one inch.
Lows tonight will range from the single digits to 20s above, highs Sunday will be in the 30s to lower 40s. Highs Monday will be in the upper 20s to middle 30s.
A cold front will drop south through the area on Monday with quite a bit of cold air advection occurring behind this front as 850mb temperatures of -5 to -10C Monday morning, falling to -10 to -15C by Tuesday morning. The cold air and north flow moving over Lake Superior will probably produce some lake effect snow showers Monday and Tuesday along the South Shore of Lake Superior.
