A Winter Storm Warning has been issued for much of KELOLAND: this will go into effect today at 6PM CST and this warning expires 6PM CST Monday with a few exceptions in extreme eastern KELOLAND where the warning will last into Tuesday morning. This warning is for the expected significant amounts of snow and high winds.
Monday is expected to be the beginning of the big cool down. Cold Canadian air will replace the mild temperatures we’ve been having, highs on Monday in the 20s and cooling down as the day goes on. Accumulating snow is expected on Monday as well. Some areas in the northern half of KELOLAND could get three to six inches of snow with some areas in the northeast seeing eight to 10 inches with locally heavier amounts. The southern half of the state is looking at around two to four inches with areas south of I-90 seeing one to two inches.
Monday night, the snow will be on the way out but a few clouds will linger over KELOLAND. Overnight lows in the single digits to middle teens.
Tuesday, a surface high pressure will start to form which will start clearing out the skies over KELOLAND. But that same high pressure will also keep pulling down cold air, highs on Tuesday in the teens to low 20s.
Highs for the rest of the week will be highly dependent on how much snow falls tomorrow but right now, highs are forecasted to be in the teens to low 20s with lows in the single digits. Keep the wind chill in mind as you head to work in the mornings next week as they have the potential to be in the single digits to below zero.
