WIND CHILL ADVISORY for Some Tonight

With arctic high pressure sliding overhead tonight, look for a bitterly cold night. We’ll see lows in the single digits above and below zero around the I-90 corridor and points south. Northern sections of the viewing area will see lows in the teens below zero. Winds won’t be overly strong from the SW around 5-10 mph, but will still push wind chills into the -5F to -20F range for many, even as cold as -30F far north.

Because of the chance for wind chills in the -20F to -30F range in far northern parts of the viewing area, the NWS has issued a WIND CHILL ADVISORY for Eau Claire, Pepin, Dunn, Chippewa, Clark Buffalo, Trempealeau and Jackson Counties for tonight through Wednesday morning. Wind chills this cold can cause frostbite in as little as 10-15 minutes, so be sure to bundle up and limit time spent outdoors. Also, don’t forget about your pets and/or livestock.

Even with plenty of sunshine, Wednesday will still be cold with highs in the upper single digits to low-mid teens.

Looking Ahead… It won’t be as cold Thursday through Saturday, but with the warmer air will come a couple of chances for snow or a wintry mix.

One disturbance will bring a good chance of snow after midnight Wednesday night… and into Thursday. Light snow accumulations (inch or two?) will be possible. Areas along and south of I-90 could see a light wintry mix. Highs Thursday will be in the upper 20s to lower 30s.

The chance of light snow or a mix will hang on into Friday. Temps will be warmer Friday with highs in the mid 30s. Another system will then bring a chance of more snow Friday night into Saturday. Highs Saturday will slip back into the 20s.

Sunday will be sunny and colder with highs in the lower teens.

Partly sunny and chilly conditions take over for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
