Northland Outdoors Forecast: Tracking snow for the Christmas weekend

Snow will arrive in the region on Saturday with yet another chance again on the later part of Sunday.

We are part of The Trust Project.

Friday will generally be a quiet day after light precipitation early in the morning. A breeze will pick up out of the northwest throughout the day.

Friday's forecast for the region.

A few areas of light snow and light rain will pass by early in the day Friday. This could make for a few icy roads and will be worth checking as you are heading out the door to your destinations.

Snow will develop on Saturday. This snow looks like it will be enough to shovel later in the day. Watch for snow covered roads on Christmas day as this next wave slides through the region.

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.
