Quieting Down but Staying Cold

Be mindful of slick conditions this morning with subfreezing temperatures icing over what's left of yesterday's mess. Lingering snow continues to move east through the morning with chances east of the Bayfield Peninsula continuing into the afternoon. Snow totals are still coming in, but the National Weather Service measured 4.1" as of 1 AM. This brings our monthly total to 11.9", officially earning the title of the snowiest October on record in Duluth.

We will now settle into a much quieter pattern for the week ahead, but temperatures will continue to be below average. Highs range from mid to upper 30s today with gradually decreasing clouds and an occasionally gusty northwest wind. Temperatures drop into teens to low 20s Saturday morning, then we stay in low 30s with mostly cloudy skies. The prolonged chilly temperatures will keep chances for flurries today through the weekend. Sunday has the best chance for light snow extending toward the Twin Ports from the south and across Northwest Wisconsin, but even so, we shouldn't see more than a dusting out of that round. The next slight chance for light snow and wintry mix is Tuesday evening into Wednesday.

Today: Morning snow, then gradually decreasing clouds. High 35. NW wind 5-15 mph.

Tonight: Partly cloudy with a few flurries. Low around 18. W wind 5-10 mph.

Saturday: Mostly cloudy and cold. High 31. W wind 2-8 mph.

Sunday: Mostly cloudy with a few light snow showers. High 33. NW wind 2-8 mph.

Monday: Partly cloudy. High 31.

Tuesday: Mostly cloudy with a slight chance for evening snow. High 32.

Wednesday: Cloudy with a slight chance for wintry mix. High 37.

Thursday: Partly cloudy. High 37.

Thanks for reading and have a great day!
