Great weekend for holiday chores

Tree Picking Forecast

If you are looking to get your home into the holiday spirit, this is the weekend to get it all done. It'll include mild temperatures and only a little breeze from time to time, making for about the best weather you can ask for in order to put up the lights or picking out a tree.

Still, as you always should, use caution on ladders and roofs and be aware of icy spots remaining from the snow we picked up last week.

Highs each day this weekend will warm into the mid, possibly upper 30s. There will be a bit of a breeze especially Saturday which will make things feel a little colder, but all in all not too bad for this time of year.

Snow chances return Sunday night and that will spark some changes to temperatures.

First, the snow on Sunday night through Monday will be light and fluffy, but there could be several inches of it. It is too early to be specific in totals and locations, but all of the Chippewa Valley will likely see some accumulations.

Temperatures will start Monday around 20 and continue falling into the teens by evening. Even once the snow stops, the temperatures keep falling. Lows Tuesday morning will be close to zero and wind chills will remain below zero all day as even the high temperature will remain in the mid single digits.

Tuesday through Thursday look very cold with lows below zero and even highs on Wednesday possibly staying below zero. It'll be a frigid week.
