After a string of cold days, milder temperatures are flowing into the lakes area along with a forecast for freezing rain and snow.

The National Weather Service issued a hazardous weather outlook for southern Cass, Crow Wing and northern Aitkin counties.

A low pressure system was expected to strengthen as it moved toward the Great Lakes, bringing a mix of freezing drizzle and light snow.

About an inch of snow is expected overnight Monday for much of the area with the potential for another inch during the day. Monday’s chance for snow is at 70 percent, mostly before noon.

“But the freezing drizzle could make things slick,” the weather service reported.

As the weather system strengthens, it could bring greater snow intensity Monday and into Monday night, with the heaviest snow falling in the Arrowhead — as much as 6 inches.

Monday’s low may reach 2 below, but overnight temperatures will rise to double-digits into the coming week.

There is a slight chance for more snow Wednesday night. A cool down is predicted for the weekend. Sunny skies are anticipated Saturday and Sunday, but high temperatures will fall. Highs are expected to range between 22 and 18 degrees. The normal high for this week in January is 21 degrees, with overnight temps typically dropping to 5 below.
