Be mindful of slick conditions Friday morning with subfreezing temperatures icing over what's left of Thursday's mess. Lingering snow continues to move east Friday morning with chances east of the Bayfield Peninsula continuing into the afternoon. Snow totals are still coming in, but the National Weather Service in Duluth measured 4.1" as of 1 a.m. This brings our monthly total to 11.9", officially earning the title of the snowiest October on record in Duluth.
We will now settle into a much quieter pattern for the week ahead, but temperatures will continue to be well below average. Highs range from mid to upper 30s Friday with gradually decreasing clouds and an occasionally gusty northwest wind. Temperatures drop into the teens to low 20s Saturday morning, then we stay in the low 30s with mostly cloudy skies. The prolonged chilly temperatures will keep chances for flurries Friday through the weekend. Sunday has the best chance for light snow extending toward the Twin Ports from the south and across Northwest Wisconsin, but even so, we shouldn't see more than a dusting out of that round. The next slight chance for light snow and wintry mix is Tuesday evening into Wednesday.
