A snow event followed by a cold event

One thing that goes with the Lake Superior Region more then anything else is weather.
When you’re near the big lake you think weather, you can’t look at the big lake without thinking about wind and waves. And in the winter its snow and wind chill values. Another storm is approaching for the weekend. First comes the snow of various depths depending where you are near the lake. Second comes the wind chill on Sunday night into the next week. Cold we haven’t seen for awhile as recent winters have been mild. This is weather that makes you think of winters past. Its early in the winter and I’m still looking forward to snow and storms. I think by the time we reach February that will likely change.

Windy...snow. Areas of blowing snow. Snow may be heavy at times. Snow accumulation of 5 to 10 inches. Highs 20 to 25. Northeast winds 20 to 30 mph.
Saturday night:
Windy. Mostly cloudy. Snow showers likely in the evening...then scattered snow showers after midnight. Areas of blowing snow through the night. Snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches. Total snow accumulation 7 to 18 inches. Lows 1 below to 4 above zero. North winds 15 to 25 mph...except north 25 to 35 mph near Lake Superior. Chance of snow 70 percent. Lowest wind chill readings 15 below to 25 below zero after midnight.
