Northland Outdoors Forecast: Christmas Weekend Outlook

The breeze will continue Saturday with another round of snow possible on Sundya.

We are part of The Trust Project.

The wind will continue to howl across parts of Minnesota and Wisconsin creating extremely tough travel in open areas. The ground blizzard will likely continue Friday night into early Saturday morning for some.

The strong winds along with the combination of bitter cold air will keep our wind chills in the -20s to -30s across nearly the entire region.

By Saturday afternoon our winds will have finally started to back off for the Dakotas and parts of western Minnesota. I'm still seeing a windy day, but it won't be like Friday.

I'm tracking another system to slide into the Dakotas on Sunday and potentially western Minnesota in the afternoon and evening. This next will be moving quickly and looks to be out of the area by Sunday night.

Sunday will be the first day for many to finally get above zero. Highs will still be cold, but not as frigid by the afternoon as winds will be much lighter.

For many, the work holiday will land on Monday. I'm seeing a quiet and chilly day for the region. Our weather will likely stay dry as the snow from Christmas Day will have slid to our south and east.

I grew up in Minnesota and my love of the outdoors lead me on a path to becoming in meteorologist. I got my Bachelor of Science in meteorology at St. Cloud State University. I started out my career as a TV meteorologist in Bismarck at KX News in 2010. I left Bismarck for Fargo in the fall of 2015 where I've been since working for WDAY as well as The Forum.
