Forecast discussion for the Upper Midwest

Updated --  April 24th 12:43pm Highlights-  Last post of the season... ****************************************************

Short Range- 0-6 days- (Following is written solely for N.MN and the UP of MI as they are likely the only areas left in the region that still have ski resorts open)

Pattern change from recent warmth to much cooler conditions has already taken place or it soon to do so. Mid week snows for the Arrowhead of MN- accumulations likely in the 2-5" range. Snow will melt, but not as fast as it should this time of year with temps  below freezing at night and upper 30's  until late in the  weekend.

********************************************************** Long Range 7-21+ (updated 12:48pm  April 24th) Temps should return to near normal temps for the first week of May. Remains of the previous colder pattern may linger enough to produce some very light snows sometime around Friday,  May 5th.  Should have more May like temps for the 2nd full week of May. Thanks for reading. Next update --when conditions are warranted.   JB
