The warmer temperatures today have helped melt some of the snow pack despite little sunshine. Most of western Wisconsin saw the return of highs back in the 30s. We have seen relatively dry conditions today with some afternoon fog developing as this warmer air has moved in over the remaining snow pack. Later this evening we could start to see some spotty drizzle that could give way to some light rain showers during the early morning hours. Winds tonight will continue from the south and southeast around 8 miles per hour. As far as overnight low temperatures many areas could see a gradual rise in temperatures overnight so in many cases we have already seen our lowest temperatures of the evening.
Low pressure will be coming together, tracking this way from the south tomorrow. The storm will stay far enough to our east to spare us from the steadiest and heaviest precipitation, so instead, we can expect occasional light rain and drizzle through the day. Temperatures will continue to rise, and most of us should be able to see highs reach 40 or better, with the highest readings in the south. Rainfall amounts look minimal, generally under a tenth of an inch, with higher amounts across the central and eastern part of the state.
The storm will continue lifting north at night and into Monday, allowing colder air from the west to wrap into the region. The backside of the storm, combined with an upper trough will produce some light snow on Monday, with temperatures hovering near the freezing mark. Accumulations at this point look minimal, but we'll watch this over the weekend. Going through the holiday week, it will definitely be turning colder, with highs back in the 20's both Tuesday and Wednesday. A weak system could produce some snow showers on Wednesday, so there could be a minor impact to travel, otherwise Thanksgiving Day looks cold and dry, with highs only in the teens.
- The first winter storm of the season will gradually wrap up through the rest of Tuesday. Meanwhile, Arctic air plunges into Western Wisconsin and will stick around into next week.
- The National Weather Service says 10 to 18 inches of snow could fall from Monday morning through Tuesday evening, with the highest accumulations in Polk, Barron and Rusk counties of northwestern Wisconsin.
