First snowfall of the season

By  | 

After about a third of an inch of rain, precipitation transitioned to wet snow in Eau Claire before midnight. Many communities north and west of the city received wet snow, with a few reports well to the north in Sawyer and Washburn Co's of a few inches of accumulation. The rain snow mix will continue through the night before moving out prior to daybreak. It has been a heavy rain event to the south, with the La Crosse area moving in on an inch of rainfall already.

As the storm continues to move away Wednesday, it will be breezy and dry and any snow accumulation will begin to melt away as temperatures rise to around the 40 degree mark. Also expect the return of some sunshine.

The rest of this work week will stay a bit on the chilly side, but it also stays dry, with varying amounts of clouds and sunshine. The next weather system will quickly slide in Friday night into early Saturday with a few rain and wet snow showers possible, but it will turn a bit milder Saturday afternoon before a front slides across. The weekend will otherwise be dry with highs in the 40's. A shot of colder air could work in early next week.
