Last Updated on Saturday, December 7 at 7:20 PM...
The arctic air mass that is in place over much of the country lead to the coldest morning of the season so far in the News 8 Viewing Area. Overnight lows for almost everyone dropped into the single digits below zero.
We saw plenty of sunshine today, but temperatures remained well below average. Highs today topped out in the low to mid teens.
Clouds will increase tonight ahead of an area of low pressure that is currently developing over the southwestern parts of the country. There will be a slight chance of snow tonight with lows in the single digits.
Looking Ahead... Snow will become likely on Sunday, especially by mid-morning. The snow will be light, but it does look to remain constant throughout the day which will impact travel. There is a Winter Weather Advisory for the entire News 8 Viewing Area from 6am Sunday through 6am Monday. Storm totals by Monday morning look to be in the range from 2"-5" of light, fluffy snow. Temperatures Sunday will top out in the upper teens.
A few snow showers may linger into the Monday morning commute, before quickly pushing east. Skies will gradually clear Monday, but winds will pick up, making for a very blustery and cold day. Highs will be in the low to mid teens.
There will be a roller coaster of temperatures over the next 8 days thanks to several storm systems moving through the Upper Midwest. Highs will range from the upper single digits to the mid 20s with periodic chances of light snow.
Have a great night and stay warm! -Michelle Poedel
