StormTeam Outlook: Friday, January 20th, 2017
Chief Meteorologist Justin Liles
An area of low pressure will continue its influence over the region through the weekend. There should continue to be a slow transition to a wintry mix or even freezing rain as we head the evening hours. There could be some decent ice accumulation tonight into Saturday morning, especially along the Northshore. Ice could reach up to one-tenth of an inch from the whole system. While ice accumulation may occur roadways are expected to become slick, especially on any untreated roads. (Minnesota Roads and Wisconsin Roads) Be sure to allow extra time and use caution on sidewalks on roadways. Another compact system impacts the region again tomorrow.
Timing as of now looks to be morning to afternoon. There could be some freezing rain/rain early Saturday morning before becoming drizzle/rain by Saturday afternoon. By Saturday night, temperatures look to be cold enough to transition over into snow. Mild temperatures continue through the mid-week next week. A wintry mix is possible all through this time period.
