A powerful Nor'easter and winter storm is expected to wallop eastern parts of the Northeast and New England this weekend.

Near-normal temperatures are expected through the weekend with highs in the teens and low 20s. Temperatures will fluctuate up and down by around 10 degrees each day as several weak systems move through the region. The average of the temperature forecasts over the Northland won't change much during the period, but will be warmer west and cooler east Saturday, then cooler west and warmer east Sunday, then warmer everywhere Monday before temperatures start to tumble Tuesday. Look for upper teens to upper 20s for highs most days. A weak clipper will graze the Northland Saturday afternoon and evening and will bring light snow to the Arrowhead and portions of northwest Wisconsin. Little accumulation is expected, generally less than an inch. Another chance of snow arrives Monday evening through Tuesday morning which may yield several inches of accumulation.
