My seasonal outlook is available. Link at bottom of page. 

No major changes. MN, WI and lower MI to see some light snows today and then a gradual warming trend and quieter period to allow autumn weather to shape up into next week. 

A weak clipper will bring the potential for a few inches of snow to MN, northern IA, most of WI, the UP and of lower MI in the next 12-18 hours. The rest of the region will be fairly quiet today.

All of the region then looks to be quiet for Thursday and into Friday.

Temps the next 2 days will run below average, but a gradual warming trend will cause temps to warm towards average by Saturday.


A weak system will bring the potential for an inch or so of new snow to the Northwoods Saturday, otherwise the weekend looks quiet, with a warming trend. All of the Northwoods will be warming into the upper 30’s, with some low 40’s not out of the question either.

The quiet and mild weather looks to continue into Monday and Tuesday and then an area of low pressure is indicated to develop in the Plains and work into the NW Midwest and bring the potential for some snows to MN, far NW WI and the western UP. However, it is too far out in the forecast to have a lot of faith in and to complicate things, the models have diverged in their thinking a bit for this system. 

Temps for all of next week look to be running near average, with highs in the Northwoods in the mid to upper 30’s.
