Today’s snow wasn’t heavy, but it did slowly accumulate to between a half inch and an inch in most spots, on the lower end of our forecast thanks to snow falling more as smaller pellets and flakes that don’t stack up as easily. Still, roads were slippery and visibility dropped below one half mile at times, though road crews did a good job keeping up with the slower accumulating snow so main roads were decent for most of the day.
Still, slippery stretches are expected this evening even after the snow ends as temperatures cool into the teens. Snow this evening is mainly south of Eau Claire but is tapering off, though expect some flakes to continue falling for a bit after it disappears from radar.
Tomorrow will start our warm up with high temperatures approaching 30 degrees, though that’s still between 10 and 15 degrees below average. It will feel nicer with the sun returning as we’ll start partly cloudy and continue to clear during the day. More sunshine is expected Friday with a morning low only dropping to 20 and highs climbing to perhaps the upper 30s!
More of those temps arrive this weekend but clouds will increase. A weak low pressure system will move through, though there won’t be much moisture with it. Light snow is possible Saturday night and will continue as mix/rain chances Sunday though accumulations will be minimal to none.
Early next week is our best chance to return to the 40s and should be dry for the most part spare a few light flurries or drizzle from time to time.
