CLIPPER SYSTEM SET TO BRING LIGHT SNOW ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE CHIPPEWA VALLEY WITH SUNSHINE TO FINISH OFF THE WEEKEND
Quiet weather continues overnight with mostly cloudy skies expected. A clipper system off to our northwest will continue pushing southeast into central Minnesota during the overnight hours into early tomorrow morning. Due to the cloud cover, low temperatures will hold steady into the upper 20s for most areas. Winds will be light from the southeast as high pressure remains across the northern Great Lakes region.
Moving into early tomorrow morning, snow will begin overspreading northern Wisconsin ahead of the low pressure system. The snow will, then, expand to the East with a chance for snow showers further southwest near Eau Claire. By the afternoon hours, snow will begin to taper as the system gradually exits. Accumulations of 1-2″ are possible in northern and eastern portions of the Badger state; around a trace up to an inch is possible closer to Eau Claire. No accumulation is expected for areas around La Crosse and the state line. High temperatures will work into the mid and upper 30s. Winds will gradually shift to the northwest as the associated cold front with the clipper system pushes through. By Saturday night, a surface high pressure will begin sliding southeast into the Northern Plains. This will help clear skies out, leading to beautiful sunshine to finish the weekend. Temperatures will climb back into the mid-30s. On Sunday night, we are tracking the potential for another Alberta clipper to move towards the Chippewa Valley. Some light snow is possible, but a lot of details remain uncertain. A quiet weather pattern will carry us through much of the new work week with a mix of sun and clouds expected. We will remain on this temperature roller coaster that we’ve experienced through a good portion of November. Temperatures on Monday will climb above our average high, into the lower 40s. We’ll see a slight drop on Tuesday as highs only make it into the upper 30s. By Wednesday, an approaching warm front will allow temperatures to return into the 40s. That frontal boundary will lift to our North on Thursday, driving our highs into the mid-40s.
