LAKE EFFECT SNOW TONIGHT
Wednesday- October 29, 2014
TONIGHT: High pressure is building from the north and will tighten our pressure gradient creating strong northerly winds at 10-20mph with gusts up to 30mph. This strong north wind goes over Lake Superior, gathers moisture and brings a good chance of lake effect snow for southern and central Ashland and Iron Counties. Gogebic County will also see some lake effect snow bands in the early morning hours. Accumulations will be around 1-3" with a few areas seeing 4". As for the rest of us, we will have clouds decrease and temperatures drop. Lows will be around 20º with partly cloudy skies.
FRIDAY: It will be a cold Halloween with highs around 36º. The high pressure system sits on the border of the Dakotas and Minnesota. The wind dies down too. Expect a N wind at 4-8mph with mostly sunny to sunny skies.
SATURDAY: The high moves southeast over Western Illinois which warms us up as southerly flow returns. Lows are in the upper teens and highs are near 43º.
SUNDAY: The high pressure system continues south and east over Kentucky and a low approaches from the Dakotas increasing southerly flow and increasing the temperatures too. Lows are around 25º and highs near 46º with partly cloudy skies.
MONDAY: The southern flow ahead of the low gets temperatures up even further. Lows are near 31º and highs around 49º. Expect mostly cloudy skies and a 20% chance of showers.
Have a great day!
