Another Round of Wintry Precip Tomorrow
Winter Weather Advisory South of I-90 Tomorrow Morning into the Midday
Good evening… after a round of snow last night, many of us woke up to between 1 and 4 inches of snow.
We’ll get a break from the snow tonight as we’ll be in between systems. Look for mainly cloudy skies and lows in the teens to around 20.
That next system will quickly work into the area tomorrow morning. As a result, look for another round of light snow and freezing drizzle to move into the area during the morning hours. This will be a quick hitter, with snow and freezing drizzle exiting by early afternoon. Snow totals look to range from a trace to around 2 inches. Any freezing drizzle looks to range from a trace to one or two hundredths of an inch. Expect snow covered roads. Many areas, especially along and south of I-90 will see a glaze of ice, as well. The snow and ice will once again cause slick travel. A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY has been issued for areas along and south of I-90, where the greatest threat of icing exists. The advisory now includes La Crosse, Monroe and Juneau Counties. Look for highs tomorrow to range from the middle 20s to near 30F. Because of the travel impacts expected tomorrow morning, we are calling it an ALERT DAY.
This system will quickly exit east late in the day. This will set the stage for a cold night tomorrow night as colder air dumps into the region behind it. Look for clearing skies as temperatures crash into the single digits above and below zero. Winds chills could approach -20 in spots.
Thursday looks sunny, but cold as highs only manage the single digits and teens.
Looking ahead… we are still looking at a potential winter storm Friday, Friday night and Saturday morning. This system will have the potential to produce heavy snow and strong winds, which could cause blowing and drifting snow, especially Friday night into Saturday. Some mixed precip is possible in our southern communities. Be sure to check later forecasts, especially if you have travel plans. Any change in the change in the track of this system will have impacts on precip types and amounts. Because of possible widespread travel problems, we are calling Friday and Saturday ALERT DAYS.
This system will exit the region Saturday afternoon, but strong winds may still cause blowing and drifting snow. Temperatures will crash behind this system as colder air wraps in behind it. They will start in the 20s and lower 30s Saturday, but drop into teens for highs Sunday.
The first half of next week looks dry, but cold. Afternoon highs will only manage the single digits and teens, while overnight lows will drop into the single digits above and below zero. A few of our colder spots could see lows in the teens below zero. Welcome to January!
Have a great night and be sure to check the latest forecasts over the next few days! –WKBT Cory Malles
