(Monday, February 8)
A clipper system will spiral out of the region today, leaving us with some very breezy winds and blowing snow. We will see lingering snow showers this morning in the Ports, then lake effect snow continues for the South Shore into the afternoon and evening. Winds will be out of the NW 10-25mph gusting up to 35mph. We will likely see an inch or less in the Ports, but the South Shore, especially Iron and Gogebic counties, will see an additional 3-6" through tonight. Temperatures are much colder, sitting in the teens, which is causing for some snow/ice on many roadways. Use caution when traveling today. Tonight we will see lows fall below zero across the region. We will see some clearing in the skies from west to east as high pressure pushes in.
On Tuesday we will see clearing skies and highs in the single digits. Winds will still be breezy out of the NW 10-20mph and that will give us wind chill values between -10° and -25°. Lake effect snow will continue for the South Shore with the breezy winds and much colder temperatures. This colder air will remain in place all week.
Wednesday we are expecting mostly sunny skies and highs in the single digits, right around 6° for the Ports. Winds will be much more calm out of the NW 5-10mph, so we should see lake effect snow shut off for the South Shore.
The clear skies will persist through the end of the week. We will struggle to make it above zero on Friday as a cold airmass sits over the Great Lakes. By Sunday we should start to see temperatures warm back up a bit, but it will also come with a chance of snow.
Have a great day!
