The first winter storm of 2023 has certainly made itself feel at home across the Northland, providing slippery driving conditions and seemingly endless rounds of snow removal.

I swear it was still snowing every single time I looked out the window over the past day. I know there are many outdoor enthusiasts who are loving all this new snow but eventually, everyone needs a break. The question is, when will that actually happen?

On Wednesday afternoon, the National Weather Service provided their best guess as to when parts of the Northland can bid adieu to this storm.  While it may not be soon enough for everyone, at least there appears to be an end in sight.

According to the post on their Facebook page, exactly when this storm officially moves out depends on where you are.

It should be done in the Duluth area by early Thursday morning, while other parts of the Northland will still see snowfall into Thursday evening.

Unfortunately, this means that dangerous driving conditions continued into Wednesday evening and that will still be the case into Thursday as crews continue to work hard to clear the roads.

The good news is that after Thursday, not only will the storm be gone but we will see sunshine with temperatures that will allow us to actually get outside to enjoy all this new snow.

Here is the National Weather Service weekend forecast for the Duluth area:

  • Friday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 21. West wind around 5 mph.
  • Friday Night: Mostly clear, with a low around 4. Northwest wind around 5 mph.
  • Saturday: Sunny, with a high near 22. Northwest wind around 5 mph becoming southwest in the afternoon.
  • Saturday Night: Mostly clear, with a low around 5. Southwest wind around 5 mph.
  • Sunday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 21. Southwest wind 5 to 10 mph.
  • Sunday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 9. West wind around 5 mph.
