Greetings and welcome!

Last night and this morning brought a few waves of heavy rain, and I even heard some thunder. Rainfall totals were in the 1-2″ range.

The wind kicked up late morning, and it got pretty windy, but the brunt of it was downstate. In my travels between Silver Cliff and Wallace, MI I only saw one tree down.

The big storm is still in process, and the radar shows some snow heading this way. As of about 6:30pm it was snowing in Antigo.

Predicted snow totals have been dialed back a little for us. The last prediction animation has Rhinelander at 2″, Pembine at 1″, and Lakewood at about 1/2″ by mid-day tomorrow.

The Arrowhead of Minnesota is getting a pretty good snow storm from what I can see on radar. Between the high winds and snow winter is probably pretty real up there.

There are winter weather advisories out for the western UP snowbelt areas, and some areas are under a winter storm warning. The lucky areas could see a foot or more as the cold air whips across Lake Superior.

The cold air behind the storm will be most notable for us Friday night when the NWS is predicting a low of 23. Saturday should be sunny and 48 with a low Saturday night of 35. Sunday looks nice and 55.

While our El Nino weather has been warmer than normal, it sure hasn’t been drier. We have been getting big storms, and next week there is a chance of rain daily as another one heads our way.

More to follow soon. Have a good weekend and thank you for visiting!
