From the KX Storm Team:
It has been warming up, today and temps are not done climbing yet. It will not get too much colder overnight and by the morning commute, it will be in the teens & 20’s. This means that tonight’s lows will be 10 or so degrees warmer than Monday’s high temperatures and as of this afternoon, it was 20-30 degrees warmer than 24 hours ago.
Our Valentine’s Day will start off chilly & much warmer than today, with temps climbing well into the 30’s and into the 40’s for some of us. After Noon, it will become mostly cloudy with snow chances picking up along & North of Hwy 2. Our next clipper will bring a cold front & snow through the state from North to South. Scattered snow will continue through Wednesday night and Thursday morning, resulting in light accumulations. Along & north of Hwy 200, expect 1″-3″ with areas of 3″-5″ possible. Along & South of I-94, totals could climb to 1″. This means that some of us will have to take out the shovel and highest totals will be along & north of Hwy 2.
In the wake of this Wednesday/Thursday cold front, temperatures will fall about 40 degrees in just 24 hours, for some of us.
This next cold snap will stick around for too long. We will wrap up the work week with temps in the 20’s Friday & back into the 30’s Saturday. Roller coaster temperatures & snow chances will not be over, just yet. Our next chance of snow will be Saturday night, Sunday and into the beginning of the work week. A second round of accumulating snow is expected and a couple of our long-range models are suggesting moderate to high snow totals by the beginning of the work week. At this point it is too early to put numbers to our second round of snow. That being said, if model guidance is correct (or not too far off) high totals could be possible for some of us.
Tonight will be mostly clear with clouds rolling in and a few areas of light snow possible, North.Lows in the teens & 20’s with a SW/West wind 5-15 mph gusting up to 20 mph. Chills in the single digits.
