Arctic blast Tuesday night-Wednesday; milder Thursday with a little snow possible

A late week system looks to bring a little bit of snow to northeast Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin, but this doesn’t look like a major winter storm at this time with generally light snowfall amounts expected.


Here’s my preliminary snowfall forecast for Thursday’s system.

*Highest amounts along the North Shore and tip of the Arrowhead from Silver Bay to Grand Marais where 3 to 6 inches of snow is possible due to a combination of system snow and possibly some lake enhanced snowfall.

1 to 3 inches of snow across northern Minnesota including International Falls, Bigfork, Cook, Hibbing and Ely.

*An inch or less of snow farther south including Grand Rapids, Duluth, Two Harbors, Walker, Hill City, Cloquet, Superior, Solon Springs, Ashland, Brainerd, Aitkin, Moose Lake, Sandstone and Hayward.

Colder Tuesday but nothing really out of the ordinary for early January with highs in the single digits to around 20 degrees. Gusty northwest winds 15 to 30 mph.

Coldest night of the week looks to be Tuesday night/Wednesday morning as lows fall into the single digits, teens and 20s below zero across the Northland.
