The rain is beginning and will continue to change over to snow as colder air filters in. Road conditions have become poor on the Minnesota, but will start to deteriorate in northern Wisconsin throughout the morning. Winds trend N around 5-15 mph with temps in the upper 20s to mid 30s.
The low pressure will continue to exit our region heading into the afternoon. Snow will gradually end from west to east, but will linger into the afternoon areas east of Hayward and Port Wing. We’ll also see a breezy NNW to NW wind around 10-25 mph with gusts up to 35 mph. We’ll see highs in the upper 20s to upper 30s, but by the afternoon, temps will fall back into the 20s.
High pressure will settle in, allowing skies to clear and the winds to calm down. We’ll see mostly cloudy skies during the evening with some light lake snow, but by Friday morning, skies will become clear to mostly clear. Winds trend NW around 10-20 mph during the evening, but will decrease to 4-10 mph overnight. Lows fall back into the single digits and teens.
The high pressure slides to our south to begin the weekend. We’ll see plenty of sunshine and a breezy SW Wind around 5-15 mph. Highs climb back into the 30s. Heading into Friday night, we’ll see mostly clear skies and a breezy SW wind around 5-15 mph. We shouldn’t have any issues for the Christmas City of the North Parade, but you may want to dress warmly.
The weekend looks mild and mostly dry, but we’ll see some extra cloud cover as a wave in the jet passes through Saturday and a low moves north Sunday. Skies will be partly cloudy to partly sunny with a W to SW wind. Highs top out in the mid 30s to low 40s. Lows fall back into the 20s.
MONDAY AND TUESDAY:
A few pulses of energy could bring some scattered flurries and light snow showers to begin the week. Skies remain mostly cloudy to cloudy otherwise with highs in the 30s.
END OF WEEK:
There have been some talks of a possible winter storm hitting our area heading into the Thanksgiving holiday. Models have showed a possible system moving in, but it’s still WAY TOO EARLY to pinpoint anything down. Nevertheless, be sure to have an alternative plan in place just in case we do get hit.
