Sit N Spin, that’s our weather pattern right now.

You don’t see this happen too often, especially in April when you have temperatures up near 70 degrees on the southern shores of Hudson Bay Canada, while temperatures are in the middle 20s and 30s across the Dakotas and Minnesota, this was the case today!

Will continue to see some snow and rain showers pass through the Northland at times through Wednesday evening, but there should be more and more dry times compared to what we have seen the last few days, and there should also be some sunshine from time to time on Wednesday, similar to what we saw today.
