Updated Saturday, December 27, 2014 at 6:55 PM...
A storm system brought a variety of snowfall totals across the area from last night through this morning. If you are in our northern communities, you're still enjoying a winter wonderland today... those south, the little bit of snow you received has likely melted. Snowfall totals ranged from 6" in Independence, 4.7" in Eau Claire, 2" in Black River Falls and only 0.7" at the La Crosse Airport.
Though we saw a few peeks of sun today, clouds were the main story with falling temperatures.
Clouds will continue to clear tonight and it's going to be colder. Lows will drop into the low to mid teens.
A secondary cold front will pass through from the northwest on Sunday. I'm not expecting any precipitation from it, but it will bring a cool down beginning Monday. Expect a mix of clouds and sun tomorrow with highs in the mid to upper 20s.
Looking Ahead... The cold front will hang out to our south Sunday night and Monday. This could lead to a few snow showers Monday with temperatures only in the upper teens for highs.
The sunshine will return Tuesday and Wednesday, but it will be a COLD end to 2014! Highs Tuesday will only reach the upper single digits to lower teens... low to mid teens on New Year's Eve.
As we head into 2015, there will be a slight chance of a few flurries New Year's Day with highs in the low 20s.
We'll get a bit closer to average in the temperature department by next weekend with highs in the mid 20s... also, a chance of snow.
Have a great night! -Michelle Poedel
