…Weather Summary…

We saw some changes in the Northland today. More clouds compared to the last few days, and even some snow flurries in parts of the area today! Temperatures have also trended cooler with highs today generally in the upper 20s to lower 30s, which is still slightly above normal for late February.

Mostly cloudy to partly cloudy skies will be found across the Northland tonight and Wednesday with scattered flurries and light snow showers.

Heavier snow showers are possible late tonight into Wednesday along the South Shore of Lake Superior where the setup will become more favorable for lake effect snow as 850mb temperatures continue to drop into the -15 to -20C range. A convergence band may also setup for a time on Wednesday with NE winds over the lake, and a N-NW wind on land, if this develops, and lingers longer than expected, then we could see snowfall totals exceed 3″ in a few locations along the South Shore on Wednesday, but this chance is fairly low.

Lows tonight will range from the single digits below to teens above zero with highs Wednesday in the teens and 20s.

Temperatures remain on the chilly side Thursday and Friday with highs in the teens and 20s.
