The latest winter storm has moved off to the east, leaving a fresh blanket of 3-6" of snow in the Chippewa Valley. We measured 4.5 inches here at the station this afternoon. Much less though as expected in the La Crosse area. The skies did clear out some this afternoon, a few long shadows just before sunset. With this string of 19 days without seeing any real sunshine in Eau Claire it was a brief but nice break.
Overnight expect temperatures to cool down a bit. Possibly single digit lows for some areas to the north. Lower teens can be expected further south. Skies should clear up some but a few clouds should stick around. Winds will be light from the southwest.
Tomorrow is looking good with a mix of sun and clouds. Highs will be seasonable in the lower to mid 20s. Winds form the northwest will keep afternoon highs from rising too much. Some flurries and light snow will be possible later Sunday into early morning Monday. Cold but mostly dry conditions for the Packers vs. Lions game tomorrow afternoon. Some lingering snow is possible early Monday as that Arctic airmass moves into western Wisconsin.
Some frigid days next week with highs only in the single digits by Tuesday. But that also looks like our best day at seeing mostly sunny skies! We'll also have a couple subzero morning as we end 2014. A slight warming trend as we head into 2015 and and possibly active as well with some snow chances both Thursday and Friday.
