Wet weather is expected for the Northland today and tomorrow. Rain will develop today and last into tonight. Cold air aloft looks to switch some of our precipitation over to snow later tonight into tomorrow. Parts of northern Minnesota and the Northland could primarily be seeing snow and wintry mix on Wednesday. The snow will likely be across northern Minnesota and around the shorelines of Lake Superior. We turn colder behind this system with highs in the 30s both Thursday and Friday.

I grew up in Minnesota and my love of the outdoors lead me on a path to becoming in meteorologist. I got my Bachelor of Science in meteorology at St. Cloud State University. I started out my career as a TV meteorologist in Bismarck at KX News in 2010. I left Bismarck for Fargo in the fall of 2015 where I've been since working for WDAY as well as The Forum.
