Here comes our little system for later tonight. Expect some rain which will slowly develop from west to east across the Northland through late this evening, then a change over to snow or a rain/snow mix is expected overnight into Thursday morning with the greatest chance for this wintry precipitation from the Twin Ports, west, east and north.
18z NAM-Nest Simulated Radar Forecast from 7 PM this evening to 11 AM Thursday.
Here’s my updated snowfall map for late tonight
I got rid of the 3″ totals, thinking at best will see a coating to 2 inches of snow for some parts of the area by Thursday morning. This will be a wet snow with low ratios. Roads could become slush covered in some areas early Thursday morning so be prepared for that if you have travel plans after midnight tonight through about 8 AM Thursday.
My latest thoughts on the potential storm for this weekend. This system should remain too far south of the Northland to give us significant amounts of snow, but I still expect some snow accumulations to occur mainly over southern parts of the Northland, or from east central Minnesota into northern Wisconsin from Friday through Sunday morning, leaning toward 2 to 6 inches for those areas. Little if any snow for northern Minnesota, Arrowhead and North Shore, well here in Duluth there could be some flurries or light snow showers at times but I’m not expecting any accumulation.
