Light Snow Tonight Then Returning Sunshine!

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Did you need to take your sunglasses out of hibernation today? The skies have been so gloomy and overcast the last few days, I was starting to think the sunshine was never going to return. Breaks in the clouds in front of the system this afternoon allowed that bright sunshine to say hello.

Clearing Radar
Clouds were able to break apart this afternoon allowing for sunshine

Overnight temperatures were in the low to mid-20s with SE Minnesota already experiencing the teens! Today then winds staying light and temperatures reached the low 30s, so being outside wasn’t bone chilling for once. The more comfortable winter weather will return sooner than later with plenty of sunshine, but a cool down before the weekend is expected.

Light Snow Tonight…

A slight disturbance in our area will allow for light snow to fill the cold air tonight. A cold front will bring colder upper air this afternoon to create some crystals in the clouds. Outlooks are showing areas with just a light dusting and then others just under a half of an inch. The area with the highest chance to see this snow event will be between I-94 and the I-90 corridor.

Roads may become slightly slick as they are already fairly wet and snowy from our storm last weekend. Even the sidewalks at the rotary lights/holiday train may be slippery, so be cautious!  Winds may begin to pick up tonight as well, so if heading to the holiday train or rotary light, dress in layers and bring a warm drink!

Clearing…

The Mississippi Valley is expected to have more broken clouds in the sky through tomorrow afternoon. Lately we have had overcast gloomy weather, that won’t last long after Thursday.

The broken clouds will bring bright sunshine to make for a look-like beautiful day. Although it may look nice outside, the temperatures are going to begin to drop. Winds are forecast to switch and bring breezy conditions that will make it feel brisk to be outside. The temperatures are only expected to reach the lows 20s, so bundle up!

Near Zero…

Clear skies are likely for Thursday and Friday night which will allow for all the surface heating that was able to produce through the day, release and colder air will fill in. Temperatures could drop as low as -5 in areas throughout the Coulee Region; this would be the first time of the season.

Tomorrow Night
Tomorrow night forecast lows in the single digits

The coldest temperatures of the day usually occur around 6 am. The bus stop and commute to work will be unbearable so be ready and dress appropriately! By the end of the weekend the winds will switch to come from the south. Southerly winds will allow for temperatures to not get AS cold, but still under freezing until the next work week!

Have a great night!
