Quiet weather for Friday, winter storm watch for the weekendNov 18, 2021 06:37AM ● By Editor
The forecast across the Northland through Monday is a mixed bag of quiet conditions, with a potential winter storm moving through late Saturday through Sunday, bringing chances of shovelable, if not plowable, snow to much of the Northland. Then, colder air will pour into the region Monday, with high temperatures only in the lower to upper teens above zero. Be prepared for this upcoming weekend system!

We continue to monitor the potential for accumulating snowfall for much of the region this weekend. The potential for plowable snow is increasing for portions of our region! There is still uncertainty regarding the storm track, which will impact snowfall amounts. At this point, it appears that the most likely area to see the highest accumulating snow is over northern Minnesota, especially along the North Shore of Lake Superior due to lake enhancement and also along portions of the South Shore due to lake effects that may linger into Monday! We've issued a Winter Storm Watch for Saturday night into Sunday night for portions of the Northland. The best thing to do right now is to be prepared, especially if you have travel plans this weekend. Keep up with the latest forecasts at weather.gov/duluth!
