Friday: We will see sunshine for a brief moment Friday morning before the clouds roll in and snow moves in by late afternoon. Temperatures will top out much warmer, around 22 degrees as the snow moves in during the afternoon and evening. By about 6 p.m. most areas should be seeing some snow and the evening commute could become slick. A winter storm warning begins at 3 p.m. and continues into Saturday at 9 p.m. for the heavy snow expected.
Friday night: Steady snow will develop Friday evening and become heavy at times overnight with about 4-8 inches of snow expected to fall by Saturday morning. Temperatures will remain steady with a low near 18 degrees.
Saturday: We will likely be waking up to a very snowy and windy Saturday morning. Travel conditions will be very dangerous across the Northland Saturday as our system still continues to spin over the area. This will bring an additional 1-2 inches of snowfall along with northwest winds gusting up to 35 mph creating blowing and drifting snow. The snow should start to taper off by the late afternoon and evening with a high near 23 degrees.
Sunday: A calmer and colder pattern will begin to develop on Sunday with partly cloudy skies and a high near 8 degrees. The colder air moving over Lake Superior will likely keep some lingering lake effect snow showers going on Sunday along the South Shore.
