MIX OF SNOW/FREEZING RAIN/RAIN SAT AM
TONIGHT: We've got a warm front moving in from the southwest. This front will bring a chance of snow showers/freezing rain to the western sections of the viewing area. I. Falls, Grand Rapids, and Aitkin will see some snow/mix begin after midnight. The rest of the region will have clouds increase with lows in the upper 20s. Expect east winds at 5-10mph.
SATURDAY: The warm front pushes in and gives us a 70% chance of precipitation. The precip looks to start as snow, then freezing rain then rain for places north of Superior. Accumulations will be around 2-5" for the northern tier, 1-3" around the Range and a trace to 1" around the Twin Ports. We can also see just under 0.25" of ice form making roadways slippery in the morning hours. The warmer air continues to filter in from the south and gets our highs into the mid 40s. Expect southeast winds at 5-15mph.
SUNDAY: With all the warm air coming in from the south we can't rule out some morning fog. Winds will also calm down, which will aid in fog development. By the afternoon skies will become partly cloudy with highs reaching 61º.
MONDAY: A weak low pressure system moves in from the west and gives us a 50% chance of showers. Morning lows will be around 37º and highs will be in the mid 50s.
TUESDAY: Morning lows will be around 33º with highs reaching 48º. Expect partly cloudy skies.
