THIS EVENING: A brief high will keep Northland mostly clear during the evening hours. Temperatures will be cooler and fall into the lower 20s with some northern Minnesota border towns falling to the upper teens. Winds will be calm from the northeast between 5 and 10 mph. Unfortunately, another system will head into Northland, creating another opportunity for snow mid-to-late afternoon Sunday.
SUNDAY: The last day of the weekend will start mostly clear to partly cloudy before cloudiness increases rapidly around noon as another system rolls in from the Dakotas. Similar to the latest systems, this one will be no different when it comes to tracking. It will strengthen as it gets closer to Northland. Temperatures will be cold enough to allow snow to form in the late afternoon over the Bemidji and Brainerd region. The snow rate will increase during the overnight hours, especially over the Iron Range and Arrowhead area, as winds blow off the lake creating heavy bands of snow. Some areas along the North Shore could see half a foot of snow by Monday morning. Highs will be in the mid 30s with lows falling around zero. Winds will blow from the east-southeast between 10 and 20 mph.
MONDAY: By Monday, the occluded system will move out of Northland, but snow and winter mixing may develop behind the system, primarily over the Arrowhead region and northern Wisconsin. Temperatures will continue to be in the upper 30s. The winds will change direction to the northwest and will still be gusty between 10 and 20 mph. As night falls, clouds will thin as colder air passes through again, lowering lows to the low to mid 20s. The high will keep Tuesday dry before another system arrives on Wednesday.
