An Alberta clipper storm system may bring several inches of snow to parts of the Northland on Tuesday afternoon and evening.

The National Weather Service reported that the greatest snow totals -- possibly as much as 3 to 6 inches -- are expected in Cook and northern Lake counties, where a winter weather advisory is in effect for late Tuesday.

Gusty southerly winds off Lake Superior may cause some enhancement of the snow along the Lake Superior shore.

Lesser snow totals are expected to the south and west of the advisory area. The Weather Service reported that the Twin Ports may see an inch or two by Tuesday night.

In the wake of the snow, temperatures are forecast to plunge late in the wake. After highs in the 20s on Tuesday and Wednesday, temperatures in Duluth are expected to reach only the single digits above zero on Thursday, with overnight lows well below zero.
