Weekend forecast for Duluth and the Northland
Friday: Be mindful of a few icy spots this morning. As the low pressure system responsible for yesterday's snow pushes off east and is replaced by high pressure, our focus remains on bitter cold and brutal wind chills. We remain in a wind chill advisory until noon as wind chills will approach 30 below zero. A gusty northwest wind may produce a few light snow showers in the typical spots of the South Shore near Ironwood, but skies will be mostly sunny elsewhere due to the high pressure. Highs will range from the single digits below zero to the single digits above.
Friday night: We fall into the teens and 20s below zero. The northwest wind will be weakening, but wind chills will still be a concern.
Saturday: We will start the weekend a shade warmer with increasing clouds bringing a chance for light snow Saturday evening. Temperatures gradually trend warmer bringing us back to seasonable temperatures as we begin the week. The high on Sunday will be around 15 degrees. We'll keep a close eye on the potential for significant snowfall Tuesday.
