TONIGHT: Two low pressure systems are pushing eastward and the southern low will bring in a band of rain with a few snowflakes mixed in after midnight tonight. Chance of rain/snow is around 100%. Lows will be near 33º with east winds at 5-15mph.
THURSDAY: Expect rain to last throughout the morning then some snow and rain mixing in around the afternoon/evening. The southern low will continue east into southern Wisconsin and will start to bring in colder air from the north, which will switch the precip type from a slushy mix to snow north of Hayward. Highs will reach 40º with east winds at 5-15mph. Thursday night into Friday morning poses the best chance of measurable snow. The most will be in Cook County and eastern Lake with 5-10" possible. The line diminishes to 3-6" in Western Lake County and NE St. Louis County. Expect 2-4" in the Range, I. Falls, Just south of Two Harbors and also in the U.P.. The Twin Ports and points southward can expect 1-3".
FRIDAY: We'll have a 40% chance of some morning snow showers as the northern low pushes east and dissipates over Lake Superior. Expect mostly cloudy skies with lows around 30º and highs in the low 40s.
SATURDAY: A ridge of high pressure builds and dries us up. Morning lows will be around 27º and highs will be near 46º with partly cloudy skies.
