More Snow Tonight
Patchy Freezing Drizzle is also Possible
Monday’s Forecast High: 30F / Tonight’s Low: 31F…
We are watching yet another disturbance approaching from the Dakotas. This system will bring another round of snow to the area mainly from this evening into the late night hours. Like Sunday night, most areas will likely pick up 1″ to 3″, but there could be isolated amounts around 4″. The area most likely to see the higher snow totals are in areas north of I-90. As a result, a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY has been issued for Wabasha, Buffalo, Trempealeau, Jackson, Clark, Eau Claire, Chippewa, Dunn and Pepin Counties tonight. There could be some freezing drizzle as the precip winds down after 3 am. The combination of light snow and freezing drizzle will cause areas of slippery travel tonight, so use caution if driving late tonight into tomorrow morning. Temps won’t drop much tonight due to the cloud cover, so expect lows in the upper 20s to low 30s.
Roads and sidewalks will likely have slippery spots again for the Tuesday morning commute. Otherwise, expect a dry day with mostly to partly cloudy skies and highs again in the low-mid 30s. These highs will occur early in the day, then drop into the 20s as the afternoon wears on. It will be a bit breezy as winds turn westerly around 10-15 mph, with gusts to 25 mph possible.
Looking Ahead… An active pattern will continue over the next 8 days, with additional chances for snow. Expect a chance of light snow on Wednesday, with light accumulations possible. Highs Wednesday will be in the upper 20s.
Dry, but colder air filters in Thursday with highs in the teens and lows in the single digits. A stronger system will bring a good chance of snow Friday, with snow likely lingering Friday night and into Saturday morning. It’s too early to say how much snow could fall with this system, but moderate accumulations look possible at this time. Stay tuned for updates through the week. Because of the potential for high travel impacts, we are calling Friday and Friday night alert days.
It turns colder for Sunday through Tuesday with highs mainly in the teens and lows in the single digits, perhaps even below zero in some spots. Sunday and Tuesday look dry at this point, with just a slight chance of light snow showers or flurries on Monday.”
