Snow for northern Minnesota tonight into Sunday morning

6:27 PM Saturday, February 19, 2022

A clipper system over western Manitoba early this evening will move southeast and is forecast to reach north-central Minnesota by around daybreak on Sunday — This system will produce some snow at times across northern Minnesota through Sunday morning with several inches of accumulation possible closer to the Ontario border (3-6″) with lighter amounts of snow (1-3″) expected farther south including for the Iron Range and Arrowhead.

Here’s the 18z HRRR model simulated radar forecast ending at Noon Sunday (snow in blue colors)

The heaviest snow with this system is expected to fall Sunday morning from around 5 AM to 10 AM. Snow exits northern Minnesota by early Sunday afternoon.


We will see a nice albeit a brief warmup in much of the Northland on Sunday with highs in the 20s in northern Minnesota to the 30s in east-central Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin. There’s even a chance for a few 40-degree temps in eastern Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin Sunday. Note: Temperatures in the 50s are likely in parts of southern Minnesota Sunday.

Much colder temperatures will return to the Northland after tomorrow with subzero lows looking likely for much of next week.
