(Friday, February 12)
Temperatures drop tonight and the wind won’t make it any better! There’s a wind chill advisory for the entire Northland. Wind chills are down to -20 to -40 with NW winds at 5-15mph. Expect near -24 in International Falls and Hibbing. Duluth has -18 and clear skies. We see a few more clouds in Ashland and Ironwood with the NW flow bringing moisture off the lake. Lows are around -10 in Ironwood and -14 in Ashland.
Saturday the high pressure bringing us the clear skies sits over the region calming our winds down. We’ll see NW flow to start the day at 4-8mph and then we have a southern flow by the afternoon hours as the high pushes east. High temps reach 11 in Hayward and 10 in Superior. Duluth is up to around 6 and highs are near 7 for the Iron Range with plenty of sun.
Clouds build Saturday night into Sunday as our next low and trough move into the area. It brings a 40% chance of snow with around 1-3” possible. Lows are down to -5 and return into the mid teens by Sunday afternoon. Monday more warm air pushes into the Northland and our temps go up! Lows are down to 9 and highs are near 26 with a 20% chance of snow showers.
Tuesday lows are down to 16, warmer because of more clouds as there’s a low down to our south. This low could kick off a few flurries, but as of now we will keep it just mostly cloudy. Highs are near 22 by Tuesday afternoon and the winds pick up as high pressure builds from the north.
This high gives us a brief shot of cold air Wednesday. Lows are down to 6 and highs near 17 with mostly Sunny skies. Temps rebound into the upper 20s by Thursday.
Have a great weekend!
