Another Cold Night Ahead
Lows this morning were sub-zero which made it the 14th day this month alone, where we saw the negative sign in front of our morning low numbers. Guess what? We will add on another one tonight, as we get near -10° in many places. The weather will stay quiet, however the clear skies will allow our temps to drop, and the gentle breeze out of the SW will drop our wind chills down between like -15° & -25°.
A weak disturbance to our south will keep the SW flow in place, which means slightly warmer temps on Sunday, with a little light snow heading our way as well. Most of the snow will miss us this time around to the south, across IA, however we still get a little, with totals not exceeding 1" for most.
Once this system moves out, the focus in the forecast shifts to Tuesday-Wednesday, as a pretty potent storm system looks to be targeting the area. It's still a little too far out for totals, but as of today, significant snow can't be ruled out. It's one worth keeping a very close eye on. The cold air returns following this system for the middle of next week, with a possible warm-up heading our way by Friday
