November 15, 2019

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

No major changes. A gradual warming trend and quieter period to allow autumn weather to shape up by the weekend and into into next week. 

All of the region then looks to be quiet for today and most of tomorrow.

A weak clipper then looks to bring the chance for some light snows to the northern 1/2 of MN, northern 1/3rd of WI and most of the UP later tomorrow into Sunday. A few raindrops could even mix in with these snows. Accumulations of snow look to be in the 1-2″ range in most cases.

The rest of the region will be quiet for the weekend.

Temps will be warming, which will cause high temps to run near average by tomorrow and remain there into Sunday.


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 Midwest and bring the potential for some snows to MN, WI upper and lower MI. It is still too far out in the forecast to have a lot of faith in the details, but the models are in fairly good agreement at this point and the general idea is for totals of 1-4″ to fall in most areas, with some 4″+ totals possible as well (see graphics for more).

Light rains look to fall in the rest of the region the second half of next week.

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