RAIN/SNOW MIX TO COME


TONIGHT: High pressure over the region will keep us clear and the winds relatively calm. Lows will be near 31º.


WEDNESDAY: Clouds will increase throughout the day and highs will reach the mid 40s. A low pressure system in the upper levels of the atmosphere will spawn two lows at the surface of the earth. The first low moves toward Southern Minnesota late in the evening bringing with it rain showers. There's a 30% chance of rain for the Twin Ports in the late evening, after 7pm. There's a 50% chance of rain around Aitkin and Western Carlton Counties. Expect an east wind at 5-15mph making temps cooler by the lake.


THURSDAY: The two lows push southeast and bring rain throughout the early morning hours south of the Twin Ports. North we will see a mix of snow and rain. Chance of precip is 90% and it looks like an all day rainy, slushy mess. Highs will be near 40º.


FRIDAY: Cold air pushes south changing much of the rain to snow overnight Thursday into Friday morning. Accumulations could be around 3-6" in the Arrowhead with more for Cook County. Morning lows will be around 30º which could create some icy spots on roadways washed off by the previous rain. Highs will reach 42º by the afternoon and the snow/rain will end into the afternoon. The chance of seeing precip is around 50%.


SATURDAY: A ridge of high pressure builds for the region clearing us up, but we will stay chilly. Lows will be in the mid 20s and highs in the low 40s with partly cloudy skies.
