First Snowstorm Takes Aim at The Northland

December 7, 2012 Updated Nov 24, 2013 at 5:46 AM CST

A low pressure system pushing in from the Dakotas will give us a really good chance of seeing some decent snow totals tonight and Sunday. The snow is expected to begin from west to east from Aitkin to Duluth in the overnight hours Saturday.

Amounts will be around 4-8" for areas around the North Shore, Twin Ports, Cartlon County, Ashland, Hayward and Ironwood. Expect 3-6" around The Range, Koochiching, N. St. Louis and N. Itasca Counties. Sunday will have some lake effect snow showers for the North Shore which could get totals up to 5-10". Then Sunday night the wind starts coming out of the north which will switch it to the South Shore, where a foot of snow is not out of the realm of possibility. The snow should be light and fluffy, I'm not expecting a wet and heavy snow because the atmosphere looks well below freezing throughout.

Winds will be around 5-15mph so drifting is a possibility throughout the afternoon Sunday. Temperatures will be around 19 Sunday morning and 28 by the afternoon. The cold arctic air filters in Sunday night lowering temps down to 7 and leaving us with highs near 14 Monday afternoon.
