Accumulating snow remains possible during the early to middle part of next week in far northern Minnesota, and also along the South Shore of Lake Superior in northern Wisconsin into upper Michigan.

A cold air mass and northwest winds will cause lake effect snow showers to develop early next week downwind of Lake Superior, and also downwind off some of the larger inland lakes across northern Minnesota.

Scattered snow showers and flurries are also possible over the remainder of the Northland early next week, but little if any snow accumulation is expected, this would include for Duluth and Superior.

Seeing signs of a warmer weather pattern developing once again after next week with above normal temperatures possible across the Northland during the 2nd week of November, perhaps will get a few more 50 degree days after next week? Time will tell.
