ALERT DAY – Snow/Mix Will Cause Slick Travel
Monday’s Forecast High: 35°F, Tonight’s Low: 19°F
It’s a quiet start to this Monday, but wintry weather will move in late this morning and this afternoon. Clouds will thicken this morning ahead of an area of low pressure located to our southwest. Expect a combination of snow/sleet/freezing drizzle to arrive in our southeastern Minnesota and northeastern Iowa counties after 11am. The precip will then move across the rest of the area around or after 2:00 pm, and then taper off tonight. A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in place for most of the News 8 Now Viewing Area from this morning through late tonight. 1″-3″ of snow for most of us, while a few isolated 4″ readings possible south and east of La Crosse. There will also be the potential for a glaze of ice to develop. Due to the travel impacts, today is an ALERT DAY.
The snow/mix tapers off tonight and winds increase from the northwest. Lows will be in the mid to upper teens.
Northwest winds will remain on the strong side for Tuesday, helping to bring in some much colder air. Highs tomorrow will be in the low 20s with decreasing clouds.
Temperatures will get even colder for the middle of the week. Highs on Wednesday and Thursday will only reach the mid to upper teens, but we’ll see lots of sunshine.
Winds shift out of the south Friday, and this will begin our warm up. Highs on Friday will top out in the low 30s, but we’ll be near 40 degrees for the upcoming weekend and early next week.
Have a great Monday and use caution on the roads this afternoon! -Michelle Poedel
