Winter temperature whiplash with a dash of flurries

Thermostat Forecast - Daybreak

The perfect recipe for wacky winter weather is one that includes large temperatures swings and the chances for snow. It looks like we have both of those ingredients for the rest of this week.

Tuesday will be colder than Monday where we topped out near average. A cold pocket of air continues to sink into the state and will settle temperatures in the teens Tuesday afternoon.

As a weak surface wave passes by Tuesday, snow flurries will be possible through the afternoon. A light dusting to maybe 0.1'' will be possible, especially south towards the Coulee Region.

Wind chills will be in the single digits with winds from the west-northwest at 5 to 15 mph. Overnight, winds will begin to turn southerly which will hold lows in the upper single digits.

But, a stronger surge of warm air will push temperatures into the mid 30s for Wednesday afternoon. Wind chills will be warmer in the 20s and the chances for flurries return as we head into Wednesday evening.

Another dusting to 0.1'' will be possible Wednesday during the evening commute. The rest of this warmer wave settles into the state for Thursday. Another strong cold front cuts through into Friday and temperatures return to near 0. The whiplash will be real.
