Updated Friday, February 27, 2015 at 5:30 PM...
Low temperatures this morning dropped below zero for the 23rd time this season. With that chilly start, temperatures today remained nearly 20 degrees below average with highs in the teens.
High pressure will remain in control tonight, and that means it's going to be another cold one. Expect temperatures to drop into the single digits to teens below zero. Winds will be out of the south sustained at about 5-10mph, but wind chills will still fall into the -10° to -25°F range. Some spots in SE Minnesota and NE Iowa could feel as cold as -30°F. A WIND CHILL ADVISORY is in place for Fillmore & Winnishiek Co. from midnight-9am Saturday.
We'll start off our day Saturday with plenty of sunshine, but clouds will be increasing throughout the day. It will be chilly tomorrow, but not quite as cold as the past 3 days. Highs will be in the upper teens to low 20s.
Looking Ahead... Clouds will continue to thicken Saturday night ahead of a storm system, and we'll see a slight chance of snow showers late. It won't be as cold tomorrow night-- Lows will be in the single digits to low teens ABOVE ZERO.
A storm system will pass by to our south on Sunday, so there is a chance of snow for the second half of the weekend. If you're south of La Crosse, you'll see the best chance of snow showers Sunday. Highs will be in the upper 20s to near 30.
Clouds clear out for a time Monday, and temperatures will remain in the mid to upper 20s.
A more potent storm system will approach the area Monday night and Tuesday bringing a better chance of accumulating snow... Stay tuned! Temperatures will remain in the 20s to low 30s for highs.
We'll get another brief blast of cold air mid-week, but temperatures will quickly warm close to normal by next weekend.
Have a great night and stay warm! -Michelle Poedel
