Your forecast for Monday: A round of light snow will push through the region Monday, which will also help to bump out temperatures up to slightly above-average levels by the afternoon. The late-morning and lunchtime commute looks to be the time when we could see some slick spots develop on the roadways. Overall total accumulations will be about 1-3 inches of snow. The higher amounts around 3 inches will likely be along and north of the Iron Range with most other areas getting closer to an inch of snow. Temperatures will be mild with an afternoon high near 26 degrees.
Monday night: Snow showers will taper off this afternoon and evening and will lead to mostly cloudy skies overnight and a low near 8 degrees.
Tuesday: A drier, but colder trend begins Tuesday as a cold high pressure system builds in and provides partly cloudy skies and an afternoon high near 15 degrees. Northwest winds gusting up to 25 mph will make it quite blustery though with wind chills near zero degrees.
We are looking at a sunny and cold stretch Wednesday into Thursday with highs in the single digits and teens, but by the end of the week and into the weekend the sunshine will continue as temperatures climb into the low and mid-30s.
