Mainly cloudy on Sunday with a weak front shifting toward the area from late morning into the afternoon, when snow showers are expected to develop. Snowfall will be minimal, with a coating to half an inch of accumulation possible, particularly in the north. Most roads will be wet, but some secondary or less traveled roads could have slick spots. Highs in the low to mid 30s. Monday features a good deal of sunshine with highs in the mid 30s.

The main weather maker for the week ahead impacts the region on Tuesday. Snow is forecast to first move during the morning hours from southwest to northeast. By late morning or midday, locations south of Highway 10 could see a transition to a wintry mix then rain, while snow or a wintry mix continues to the north through the early to mid-afternoon. By late day, the changeover line could be located near Highway 29 or perhaps a bit farther north. The snow in the Northwoods is forecast to continue into Tuesday night. At this point, the latest indications are for a few inches of snowfall around and north of Highway 29, less in the way of snow and more in the way of rainfall to the south. There are still many variables that need to be fine-tuned in the coming days, including the storm track, temperatures, and available moisture in association with this winter storm. Be sure to check back here and on the First Alert Weather App for updates. Highs on Tuesday in the mid to upper 30s.
