Highs will only warm into the 20s Monday despite the sunny skies. North winds gusting as high as 45 miles per hour will create significant blowing and drifting of snow. Although winds will weaken later this morning, temperatures around zero will support wind chills of 15 to 25 below zero. Lows tonight will dip well into the single digits and breezy conditions will continue to produce wind chill values as low as -12°.
Anywhere from 6 to 8 inches of snow are expected to blanket some areas on Lake Superior, including Duluth and Grand Marais.
Very cold wind chills expected by this evening.
A wind chill advisory went into effect after 8 inches of snow fell in Seneca County. Even without the wind chill, the low overnight will be -18C.
High winds are also expected: northeast winds gusting to 60 km/h will develop Saturday evening and generate widespread blowing snow.
The agency says a milder air mass will begin to move in Tuesday. We will rise back into mid to upper 30s Tuesday and lower 40s early Wednesday morning!
Plan on a mix of rain and snow showers Wednesday.
