Wednesday’s forecast for Duluth and the Northland
Wednesday: Roads will be snow packed and slippery this morning thanks to our most recent snowfall that dumped a few inches overnight. Snow showers will linger off and on today with overcast skies and a high near 18 degrees. The best chances of snow showers during the day will be along the North Shore due to an east wind.
Wednesday night: Snow showers will transition into a steady snowfall this evening and continue overnight as an area of low pressure slides across the area. Temperatures will fall to a low near 8 degrees. Winter weather advisories are in place for the Northland tonight through Thursday. We can expect 3-5 inches of snow overnight.
Thursday: The snow will continue to fall with another tricky morning and evening commute expected. Another 2-3 inches will accumulate, putting storm totals around 5-8 inches by the time the snow begins to wind down on Thursday evening. Winds will begin to pick up and gust out of the north up to 25 mph, making the afternoon high of 12 degrees feel much colder as wind chills drop below zero.
