Thursday: Temperatures are hovering just above freezing, so roads will mainly stay wet, but don’t be alarmed to see a few flurries mix in early in the morning. We catch a break from the rain during the middle of the day but will stay gloomy and chilly with a high near 42 degrees before rain returns this evening.
Thursday night: Steady rainfall will develop this evening and continue overnight as temperatures remain above freezing with a low near 36. Areas north and west of the Iron Range will be cooler and could see a wintry mix lead to slick roads overnight.
Friday: Rain showers will continue in the morning on Friday before gradually switching over to freezing rain and then snow from west to east as the day wears on. Accumulations will be light, but a slushy inch or two is possible for Northern Minnesota and we are still watching the concern for some minor river flooding. Temperatures will start out around 38 and drop into the low 30s by the afternoon.
We will catch a brief break from the wet and wintry weather over the weekend and a chance to dry out before more wet weather early next week.
