*Different types of weather and road conditions across parts of the Northland through this evening.  For locations inland from Lake Superior expect wet snow to persist this afternoon although some drizzle could mix in with the snow especially at times when the snowfall rate diminishes.  Snow and slush covered roads will likely persist this afternoon away from Lake Superior so be sure to use caution if you have travel plans and remember to slow down in adverse weather conditions.

Note:  There will also be areas of fog this afternoon especially around Lake Superior.

*Below the hill in Duluth and Superior, including along the immediate North Shore and South Shore of Lake Superior expect mostly light rain and drizzle this afternoon.  Warmer air coming off the lake thanks to an east-northeast wind direction has caused the snow earlier this morning to changeover to rain, and now that the changeover to rain has occurred, I think it will be pretty difficult to get a changeover back to snow this afternoon.  Roads close to Lake Superior are mostly wet as of late this morning but still use caution and slow down as some secondary roads may still have some slush on them.
