Storm Center Update - Saturday AM
January 14, 2012, 7:53 AM
Most of the light snows east of the James River are over with for now, though we have some reports saying Highway 14 still has some snow covering stretches. Most travel plans will not be impacted today, as the system is eastbound towards the Cities.
Most areas are still looking at above normal temperatures for the weekend, with plentiful sunshine. Clouds increase by tonight, trapping in some warmth. That should keep us from bottoming out. It will be even warmer tomorrow, as west winds bring highs into the 40s for much of KELOLAND.
Monday is a completely different story. Much colder temperatures are forecasted, and the winds will be strong and cold. The first of many snow chances is set for Monday evening west of the Missouri. That same system heads east, bringing a good light snow chance East River. By Tuesday, highs will be in the teens across the map, even colder in Aberdeen. Thursday brings another shot of snow. We’re still crunching numbers for the late-week amounts, but it look like a more structured system.
Enjoy the warm weekend before things get cold again. Winter is back in session.
