Upcoming Pattern Shift to Bring Heavy Mountain Snow to the West

Heavy, accumulating snow is likely today in the Cascades and Sierra Nevada. Another Bering Sea storm will bring strong winds and heavy precipitation to the Aleutians and southwest Alaska into Thursday. Light snow is expected from the Ohio Valley into the Northeast. A widespread and significant winter storm is expected to move into the Central Rockies and High Plains Thursday into Friday. Read More >

Unseasonably cold temperatures were observed Friday morning, November 10, 2017. Arctic air poured into the region over an early season snowpack with clear skies overhead. This combination allowed for efficient radiational cooling overnight. Record low temperatures were set at Duluth, International Falls, and Hibbing. Below are the record statements and a summary of observed overnight lows.

Areas in northern Minnesota noted the coldest temperatures. Locales in central Minnesota weren't as cool due in part to a thinner snowpack and light southeast winds overnight. Northwest Wisconsin was downright mild by comparison due to warmer air moving inland from Lake Superior.
