StormTeam Outlook: Friday, February 24th, 2017
Chief Meteorologist Justin Liles
Snow continues to fall in our southeast viewing area. The heavier snow line just did not make it far enough north to allow the Birkie to have their ski race. Hayward, WI lies in the northwest corner of Sawyer County. Unfortunately, the heaviest snow stayed in the southeastern corner. A swath of 6” plus will fall through rest of day and overnight. This line of heavier snow will extend to the U.P. of Michigan. Ironwood and surrounding communities are likely going to see 6-9” of snowfall.
Winds will eventually switch over to the northwest allowing for lake effect snow to form in these same areas on Saturday. The 6-9” is through the tonight and Saturday time period. A weak piece of energy will bring some light snow to the region Sunday. Another snow storm looks possible late Tuesday into Wednesday. Once again timing and amounts will be a challenge.
