We woke up again to yet another light layer of snow that measured between 1 and 3 inches for most. Temperatures were warmest midday when we warmed up to the mid 30s but temperatures have fallen back into the 20s this evening and will continue to fall tonight into the low teens. There's a chance we dip lower if an area of clear sky lasts longer, but another round of clouds associated with yet another low pressure system that will bring snow tomorrow does move in before morning.
Snow is likely during much of the day, and like the past two systems we had this week it will only bring light snow, but still there will be low visibility as it falls so you'll need headlights and it will be slippery. We've had multiple reports of accidents each of the past couple days despite the low snow totals. Here's just another reminder that you need to slow down and give extra following distance for any amount of snow on roads.
Totals with tomorrow's round will fall mostly in the 1/2” to 2” range but there could be isolated higher amounts especially north and northeast of Eau Claire.
Temperatures tomorrow night will get quite cold following the snow's exit, but how cold we get depends heavily on how much clearing we get overnight. With a partly cloudy to mostly clear sky, some spots could easily fall to the negative teens, while a cloudy sky all night means we might not fall much further than to zero.
Temps warm back up Friday as a stronger low pressure system approaches, and snow is likely Friday afternoon through Saturday morning. This one has the potential for totals above 6 inches, but it's still too early to talk specifics. Still, expect hazardous to dangerous travel conditions Friday and Saturday with a more extended blast of arctic air Sunday into early next week.
With all these snow chances mixed with multiple days with negative lows, it will certainly feel like the middle of winter.
