Snow postpones area school-related events
More winter weather has come to the lakes area, postponing several area events.
Between Wednesday evening and Thursday at noon, snowfall reports averaged between 7.5 and 10 inches throughout the area, according to the National Weather Service. However, little is expected moving forward.
"It looks like we develop some holes and drop the potential for precipitation to a 50- or 60-percent chance by 6 p.m.," said Steve Gohde, observing program leader at the National Weather Service in Duluth. "As for how much snow (is still to come), maybe a couple more inches."
All school-related events for both Pequot Lakes and Pine River-Backus have been postponed or cancelled.
The area is currently in a winter storm warning until 9 p.m., but Gohde anticipates inclement weather to wind down before that time.
"For the most part, we have seen the brunt of it," Gohde said. "It looks like things are starting to thin out and the north winds are picking up."
Gohde also warned of "much cooler" temperatures for Friday and Saturday, including an air temperature of roughly -25 degrees on Saturday morning.
