Wind gusts of 30-40 miles per hour near Lake Superior were anticipated to create blowing snow and reduced visibility for travelers.

The Twin Ports saw rain near the lake, but 1.8 inches of snow was reported near the Duluth International Airport, according to the National Weather Service. About 15 inches of snow was reported on the summit of Big Mountain Monday morning.

According to the National Weather Service, Cortez as of November 2 has received 8 inches of precipitation in 2018, which is 3.5 inches below normal.

"We're expecting the shower activity to continue with a mix of rain and snow for Tuesday".


Mountain locations around Glacier National Park could pick up more than a foot of new snow by Wednesday.

Temperatures are also expected to take a bit of a plunge - it's expected to feel like -1 most days, with Wednesday being the coldest at -4.

At week's end and into the weekend, highs are expected to be in the upper 20s with lows in the teens.

Wednesday and Thursday will be relatively dry, with temperatures hovering in the mid 40s and the low dropping below 20 degrees by Friday night. The extended bump of mild air recently provided additional opportunities to finish yard work, hang holiday lights, cleanout garages and generally prepare for the impending winter.
