Snowfall of 3 to 6 inches is expected in the advisory area, with the greatest totals northwest of Duluth.
Temperatures will fall in the wake of the snow. After highs in the 30s today and Friday, temperatures may struggle to climb out of the teens on Saturday and Sunday. Lows on Saturday night and Sunday night may fall below zero.
