Tuesday’s Morning Weather 12/26

Weather Blog

An Arctic high pressure is sitting directly over North Dakota and is drawing in the much much colder weather through the New Year. A wind chill warning and a wind chill advisory are in effect until later this afternoon and this means wind chills are forecasted to be around -25 to -45 degrees. As the high pressure slowly moves Eastward, the colder air will continue, but there will also be a low pressure system moving in, bringing in a slight chance of snow for some. At this time accumulations of less than 2 inches are likely on Wednesday night. But shortly after, the cold stays in place with below zero temperatures as another high sets in. Through the course of this week, a few chances of snow persist, but they are on the very light side. Despite the really cold temperatures it is actually no where near record breaking, but instead roughly 30 degrees below average.  An average high temperature for mid to late December is in the mid 20s and lows in the lower single digits.

Today, a mainly sunny sky with highs in the single digits — below zero degrees. Winds northwest/west at 5-15 mph. 

Tuesday night, lows in the negative teens and a few clouds throughout the night. Winds southwest to southeast and light. 

Wednesday, slightly ‘warmer,’ in the single digits above zero degrees and winds southeast at 5-10 mph with a mostly cloudy sky. 

Wednesday night, a chance of light snow is possible with a northwest wind at 5-15 mph from the northwest and wind chills around -20 degrees. Lows in the single digits below zero. 

Thursday, highs around zero degrees and chance of snow in the early morning hours. Highs in around zero degrees and winds west at 5-10 mph.
