Monday forecast for the Northland: Wintry mix moves across region
Scattered wintry mix is moving across the region this morning. The showers are sporadic and rather minimal, but freezing drizzle in the mix may lead to isolated slick spots, particularly near and north of the Iron Range, where temps have dipped below freezing. The wintry mix should taper off rather early. Clouds will gradually decrease today as an area of high pressure settles in from the west. Temperatures will stay rather stagnant as cooler air continues to filter in behind the front responsible for the wintry mix.
Tuesday will have partly cloudy skies and highs in the mid-30s. A few light snow showers are possible Tuesday evening and overnight, mainly south of the Twin Ports.
Another system passing north of the border will present the chance for light snow for the northern edge of Minnesota on Wednesday evening and overnight.
This transitions to wintry mix chances Thursday on the backside of the system.
Friday through the weekend will be cooler than we've seen the last several weekends, but still rather seasonable.
