The early morning snow was mostly a non-factor for the northern part of our region. The track of the storm was well to our southwest bringing nothing more than a trace for even the southern part of our state. But more snow is in the forecast as we start another work week.
Drier air today brought the sun out making for a bright afternoon. The clipper did pull down some colder air from the north, keeping temperatures around average for this afternoon. Many areas around our region will saw highs just a degree or two above the early morning lows. The dryer air means overnight temperatures will drop a bit more. Lower to mid teens are likely for most.
Another, clipper system is already building well to our north at should impact our area early Monday. This system for now looks to stay mostly to our north at first then dip off to the central part of Wisconsin. More light snow accumulation is expected I'm thinking an inch for Eau Claire and surrounding areas. Then slightly higher amounts to the east. With afternoon highs topping out around freezing the last bit of this event could be freezing rain or a wintery mix. After that, high pressure should then return sunshine on Tuesday, with temperatures gradually rising back above freezing.
The mid part of this week looks to briefly turn milder once more. Another system will slide by to our north, allowing us to climb well into the 30's Wednesday, with a chance of just some rain showers or a wintery mix later in the day or just after dark. Further out, more snow could impact us next weekend as well as the return of some true, arctic air. For both of those days we may see single digit lows and highs in the teens!
- The snow has come to an end but blowing and drifting snow will be the big concern for this evening. That should continue to make for treacherous road conditions in Western Wisconsin.
- Frigid temperatures and blustery winds will combine to create dangerous wind chills this morning. The entire viewing area is under a WIND CHILL WARNING for tonight through Wednesday morning.
