Today, in KELOLAND, will be cloudy with temperatures divided north to south. The northern counties will top out in the teens to lower 20s while the southern counties will have another pleasantly warm day with highs in the 30s and 40s. The reason behind the temperature division is because of the next low pressure to pass through the midwest.
KELOLAND will be on the front side of the low most of the day so a warm front will slide in from the south, bringing warm temps to the south. The front side of the low (mainly central and east KELOLAND) will also have some drizzle, fog, or mist before the cold front swings through bringing precipitation. The precip will start off as rain but will quickly switch over to snow as temps drop below freezing. Because of the switch over, some areas of KELOLAND could see some light icing. Winter Weather Advisories have already been issued for the light icing and snow as well as wind chill advisories, you can see the latest alerts here.
The snow will last through Sunday night and be gone by early Monday morning. The northeast is expected to see the most snow accumulations at one to four inches while the rest of the area sees less than one inch, if any snow accumulation at all. Once the snow exits the area early Monday, the rest of the day will have decreasing clouds and a very cold afternoon. Strong northwest winds, beginning tonight as the cold front swings through, will drive in much colder air so Monday’s afternoon temps will only top out in the single digits for most of the area.
Monday night into Tuesday, we could see another round of light snow or flurries pass through southern KELOLAND but otherwise, Tuesday is looking mostly cloudy with continued cold highs only in the single digits to low teens.
Wednesday and Thursday bring the next chance for passing snow through the area. Highs will still be in the single digits (above and below zero) to low teens.
Friday and next weekend look dry with slightly warmer weather.
