A low-pressure system is moving across the Northland throughout the day with scattered showers. Rain will be possible from Wednesday morning to evening with occasional dry periods. Highs range from the mid 40s near International Falls to the upper 50s from Hinckley to Hayward. Rain gradually moves east overnight with the chance for snow to mix in. A wintry mix may linger along the South Shore east of the Bayfield Peninsula Thursday morning. Wednesday's cold front sparks the beginning of a cold and unsettled weather pattern that stays with us through the middle of next week, bringing occasional opportunities for snowflakes. The best chance for widespread rain and snow will be Saturday. There is still a lot of uncertainty in the potential for accumulation and travel impacts.

Wednesday: Cloudy with scattered showers. High 51. S wind becoming W 5-15 mph. Wednesday night: Lingering rain possibly mixing with snow, clearing after midnight. Blustery. Low around 31. NW wind 5-20 mph.

Thursday: Partly cloudy and breezy. High 44. NW wind 10-20 mph.

Friday: Partly cloudy and breezy, with a slight chance for light snow showers. High 40. W 10-15.
