Monday’s system will race across the area dropping snow amounts of at least three to five inches for areas along and north of Highway 14; expect lesser amounts south of Highway 14. At least the winds will not be strong with this system as compared to the one we had a week ago, it looks like winds will average ten to twenty miles per hour, but do expect travel problems due to the snow. The snow will come to an end Monday night.
Temperatures will remain below average with dry skies Tuesday and Wednesday, but expect another shot of snow Thursday and Christmas Eve. At the moment, this system is looking fairly light due to the lack of moisture. Skies will clear for Christmas Day but temperatures will be cold with morning readings in the single digits below zero.
Clouds will slowly increase this evening through the overnight with temperatures falling to the single digits above and below zero by Sunday morning. Clouds will be thicker tomorrow, but I do anticipate seeing some sunshine with highs remaining in the teens and twenties. There’s also a slight chance at light snow tomorrow afternoon and evening, but it looks like the significant snow will hold off until Monday.
