I really hope this new cold air is the beginning of winter.

We saw about an inch of snow at the il/wi border this morning. But it is suppose to be 50 on saturday. It looks like their could be the "flip" later next week.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, two areas of low pressure will be getting ready to converge on the Midwest and join forces by the end of the week. One area of low pressure will form in the Gulf Coast region and the other low will be riding in from the NW with the main branch of the polar jet. The two of these systems look to merge by Thursday and Friday and will produce a fairly deep area of low pressure in the upper Great Lakes. It looks like things will not come together in a manner to produce a band of heavy snows, but as the two lows become one, moisture from the southern low will likely mix with cold air from the northern low and snows of 2-5" are possible for the eastern Ĺ of MN, most of WI, the UP and eventually into lower MI. Itís possible that some accumulating snows could reach into northern and eastern IA as well as northern IL, IN and OH with the main low late next week.
It also looks like temps will be getting cold enough that the lake snow guns will be brought into action by later Thursday into Friday and Saturday. Still a tricky call as to how much LES will occur, but with cold, moist and unstable air passing over waters that have had their temps propped up by the mild November, I would not be surprised at all to see some locales in the UP and maybe NWL MI pick up 12"+ of snow.

You really had me going there. I was reading your forecast, and thought, wow, he really knows his stuff. I was believing that you were providing the forecast. Then I saw the disclaimer at the bottom "says JD". Sounds like good news! Think Snow!
