7 Day Forecast

SkyWarn 13 Forecast

November 27, 2014 Updated: 6:25 PM

This has been the coldest Thanksgiving we have seen in years! Our high temperature (just after midnight) was 17°. The last time we saw a turkey day that cold was in 1985. Most of the day has been spent in the single digits with more cold air ahead for tonight!

Clouds will begin to arrive from the west this evening, as a warm front tracks through the Plains. This will spread a swath of snow over the state, starting after midnight, and continuing for some of us into Black Friday. The timing and track of this expected snow is still a bit uncertain, but the highest amounts and longest duration is expected to occur north and east of Eau Claire. Locally I'm forecast an inch or two, but that could be an inch or two more further north in places east of Barron and along highway 8 and points north. If you are planning to hit the stores early Friday morning, expect snowy conditions. Temperatures will be rising through the day however, and as milder air pushed into the mid levels of the atmosphere, it could even lead to a little wintry mix at times before any snow ends.

The weekend will get off to a milder start, with a southerly flow and temperatures rising through the 30's, but it won't last, and don't expect much sunshine.. The next cold front will pass through generally dry Saturday night, while another shot of arctic air follows for Sunday and Monday. On Sunday, high temperatures will be early in the morning, while falling through the teens in the afternoon, and remaining there through Monday.

Have a great and safe Thanksgiving!
