Eau Claire (WEAU) -- Temperatures have fallen into the teens below zero and will remain subzero throughout most of the day. We are seeing temperatures between 25-30 degrees cooler this morning than 24 hours ago. Bundle up as you head out the door, and keep those scarves and gloves handy throughout the day and next couple of days!
Arctic air will dominate most of this work week, dropping temperatures back to a good twenty or more degrees below average. Heading out the door this morning will be frigid, with temperatures in the -10's and wind chill values close to -30. Wind Chill Advisory continues for the whole region through noon.
Despite the frigid air, it will at least be mostly sunny through much of the day, before clouds move in ahead of the next front. This system will spark off more snow showers Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. Accumulations will be light, with most places seeing an inch or two, but isolated amounts up to three inches will be possible. The frigid temperatures will stick around through Thursday, with highs really having a tough time getting much above zero.
Friday will bring our only break from the very cold conditions, as winds briefly go southerly out ahead of the next cold front. We should be able to climb into the 20's again, while snow chances will also increase. This will lead to additional light accumulations, before another shot of arctic air arrives over the weekend and beyond.
Stay warm out there, and just think, spring is "officially" just 59 days away!
