National Weather Service Duluth Says More Snow On The Way Tuesday into Wednesday
The National Weather Service in Duluth says that more snow is on the way this week, which could make for some tricky mid-week travel. An official Winter Weather Advisory was issued for the Duluth area, which begins 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, January 4 and continues through noon on Wednesday.
How much snow can we expect? Well, as usual that depends on where in the Northland you are. On Monday, the US National Weather Service Duluth Minnesota Facebook page provided updates and some helpful accumulation prediction tools.
According to one of their Facebook posts, the heaviest snowfall is expected along the South Shore of Lake Superior, where a Winter Storm Warning is in effect. You can see their initial accumulation predictions below.
Later in the afternoon, they provided another handy tool to help people across the Northland get an idea of how much snow to expect and the timing of when it will arrive.
As you can see below, Duluth is expected to have around 4 inches of new snow, which is expected to begin by 6:00 p.m. Tuesday and end Wednesday afternoon. That will make for a slippery commute Wednesday morning.
Hurley, Wisconsin appears to be getting the worst of this storm, but tricky travel will be prevalent across the Northland.
The interactive forecast map below predicts Superior to experience similar conditions as Duluth, with snow beginning Tuesday evening and continuing until around 4 inches of new snow is on the ground.
That's a handy tool to bookmark for any storm, or to just get a more in-depth look at weather conditions anywhere in the world at any time of the year.
Whatever new snow you get from this storm, you'll want to get it cleared up by Wednesday night as the extended forecast calls for temperatures to drop into low single digit highs on both Thursday and Friday.
