Winter is alive and well in KELOLAND. We have plenty to talk about in the forecast. First, wind chill headlines remain in effect for much of the north this morning.
Several hits of snow are ahead the next 24 to 72 hours. We expect minor accumulations today, but a stronger wave will move our direction starting tomorrow. We believe snow will add up over a longer period of time and all of the snow will be dry and fluffy in nature.
We are not putting numbers out just yet, but this snow will be enough to grab your shovel. The heaviest amounts will likely fall in the northeast into much of Minnesota. The wind will be just as much of a headline as the amount of snow.
We expect wind gusts late Thursday around 40mph in eastern KELOLAND. The wind chill will drop significantly and will be dangerously cold by the evening into Friday morning. This is a snapshot at 5pm Thursday. Don’t be surprised if we bottom out near -40 on the wind chill map Friday AM in some areas.
We’ll be stuck in the cold into Friday, but some slight improvement is possible by the weekend.
Here’s the forecast for today. You can see temperatures will be well below normal.
Snow will redevelop to the west tonight with subzero weather likely for overnight lows.
Expect snow to develop tomorrow with very cold temperatures.
There’s not much relief in the 7-day forecast. We have highs in the 20s on Saturday, but another wave of snow may arrive by late Sunday into Monday. Stay warm!
