TODAY: An area of low pressure will pass to our south. We'll see scattered light snow showers and areas of patchy freezing drizzle throughout the day as an upper level wave attached to the low passes through. Winds trend ESE to SE at 5-15 mph, but will be turning W to NW in the afternoon. Highs range from the mid 20s north to around freezing south.
TONIGHT: The system will continue to move east tonight, but some evening snow showers will linger in northwest Wisconsin. Skies remain mostly cloudy with NW winds at 5-15 mph. Winds however, will become breezy overnight. Lows range from around zero north to the teens south.
SNOW TOTALS: Most areas will see up to an inch of snow, but the Iron Range and Vermilion Range could see the higher totals, where 2-4" is possible. 1-2" is also possible east of State HWY 13 in Wisconsin.
TUESDAY: A strong high pressure will slowly approach from the northwest. This will start to bring in colder air once again to the area. We'll see mostly cloudy to partly sunny skies with a breezy NW wind at 10-20 mph. Highs are only in the single digits north with mid to upper teens south. The gusty winds will keep wind chill values in the single digits above and below.
TUESDAY NIGHT: The high slowly slides southeast, so skies will begin to clear and winds will also begin to decrease. This will set up to a rather cold night once again with lows in the single digits and teens below. Wind chill values will likely be in the -15 to -30 range.
WEDNESDAY: The high pressure sticks with us, which will give us sunny to mostly sunny skies, but temperatures remain cold. Highs are in the single digits to low teens. Lows are in the single digits and teens below once again.
THURSDAY: We'll see another sunny day, but temperatures warm a bit as the high centers itself over Iowa. This will turn the winds more westerly. Highs are in the mid-teens to low 20s with lows in the single digits and teens.
FRIDAY: The high slides southeast and a warm front approaches from the west. Skies remain sunny, but winds will become breezy once again out of the SW. This will boost highs in to the mid to upper 30s.
BEYOND FRIDAY: The sunshine and warm temperatures will continue into the weekend. High temperatures will be in the mid 30s to lower 40s with lows in the 20s, which will be about 10-20 degrees above average. The next chance of precipitation doesn't appear to move in until early next week, with highs remaining in the 30s.
