You’ve heard the talk of snow potential, and the Twin Ports will primarily see rain with a chance at some mixed precipitation and snow showers over the next 48 hours.  However, if you planning on traveling during that time frame, check the weather of your route.  The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for parts of the Northland from 4pm Thursday until 7pm Friday and measurable snow is expected.

As posted on Weather.com, here is the official advisory released by The National Weather Service in Duluth:

WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 4 PM THURSDAY TO 7 PM CDT FRIDAY…
