Wednesday: Temperatures will start out in the low 20s along with some snow showers moving from north to south along an arctic cold front pushing into the region from Canada. Snowfall amounts will likely add up to 1-2 inches for most of Northern Minnesota, but some areas along the South Shore in Wisconsin could pick up around 4-6 inches through the evening thanks to lake effect snowfall. The big story behind the light snow will be the arctic air moving in behind the front. Temperatures by the afternoon will drop into the single digits and well below zero by the evening.
Wednesday night: Skies will clear quickly and temperatures will plummet overnight with a low near -16. Northerly winds gusting up to 25 mph will drop wind chills into the -20 to -40 range with a wind chill advisory in place from 6 pm until noon Thursday.
Thursday: It will be a very sunny and very cold Thursday for us with wind chills again remaining around -30 to -40, especially during the morning hours. Actual temperatures by the afternoon will struggle to reach a high near 0.
After another cold night Thursday night into Friday, we will start to see slightly milder temperatures back into the 20s by the weekend with a slight chance of snow Friday night into Saturday morning.
