The KX Storm Team is in AWARE mode.
Increasing clouds are expected tonight as another round of snow is anticipated for much of the southern half of the state. You will likely start seeing snow during the morning hours. Then as we head into the afternoon, snow will become widespread — mainly to the south of I-94. There is a winter weather warning for counties in the SW — this is where 5-8″ is expected. Areas to the north and east are in the 2-4″ range — under a winter weather advisory. The snow is going to be heavy and wet. This means any travel will be difficult — blowing and drifting snow is also a concern due to winds gusting around 35 mph at times. The early afternoon and evening will likely be the worst. When it is all said and done, the snow will move out by the early morning hours on Tuesday.
The upcoming week will see well below average temperatures and partly cloudy skies. Highs will be in the 20s in the north and in the south 20s & 30s. An average high temperature is in the mid 40s and lows in the lower 20s.
Sunday night, an east wind at 5-10 mph with clouds continuing to increase. A slight chance of snow in the very late night hours. Lows in the teens and single digits.
Monday, accumulating snow is possible for parts of the state — mainly to the south of I-94, otherwise, a cloudy sky in the north. Highs in the mid 20s with an east wind shifting northeast at 10-20 mph and winds gusting 35 at times. Chance of snow 70%.
Monday night, light snow possible and ending throughout the night. Winds breezy and from the north at 10-20 mph. Lows in the single digits.
Tuesday, a few lingering snow showers possible. Blowing and drifting snow will be likely as winds will be north/northwest at 5-15 mph. Highs in the upper teens and 20s.
Tuesday night, a few clouds with a west/southwest wind at 1-8 mph. Lows in the single digits.
