Frigid Saturday morning with snow showers returning
Northern Plains clipper system brings accumulating snowfall beginning west Saturday morning.
High pressure builds in for a brief stay, bringing calmer wind conditions, drier air but still a frigid airmass to the U.P. Friday night. But following the high’s exit Saturday morning is an approaching Northern plains front, bringing snow showers to the western counties including U.P. locations close to the Wisconsin border. Snow showers become widespread into the evening hours as a reinforcing cold air aloft restarts lake effect snow over the northwest wind belts. Beware of icy patches on roads and walkways early Saturday, and then slushy road conditions as snowfall spreads throughout the day. Snow accumulations can exceed 2″ in western as well as southern locations Saturday, with accumulations picking up in other areas of the U.P. late Saturday night and into Sunday.
A wintry-dominant weather pattern results in waves of system and lake effect-produced precipitation over the U.P. next week.
