A large ridge of Canadian high pressure will dominate our weather for the rest of the week. The result will be a stretch of mainly dry, quiet and cold weather.
We'll start with tonight, look for a clear and bitterly cold night. Expect overnight lows in the single digits below zero, but traditional colder spots north & east could approach the teens below zero. NW winds 5-15 mph will cause wind chills in the -15º to -25º range.
Wednesday looks dry with a mix of sun and clouds. Winds will be lighter (NW 5-10 mph)... but it will still be cold with highs only in the upper single digits to lower teens.
Looking Ahead... It's going to remain cold with highs only in the teens right through Saturday. In fact, some spots could struggle just to reach double digits for highs on Saturday. Overnight lows will mostly be in the single digits below zero. Traditional colder spots (like BRF, Sparta & Camp Douglas) could dip into the teens below zero.
It looks mainly dry for most areas through Saturday. Clouds increase Sunday with a chance of light snow by Sunday afternoon and into Sunday night. We'll need to keep an eye on this system as it could produce some accumulating snow. It won't be as cold Sunday with highs closer to 20º.
Light snow could linger into early Monday morning with high temps warming into the upper 20s.
After that, look for temperatures to climb back into the 30s as winds in the upper atmosphere transition from a northwest flow to a westerly flow. This warmer air will more than likely produce plenty of clouds during that time period.
Have a great night and be sure to bundle up! Don;t forget about those outdoor pets and live stock! -Cory Malles
