No big storms will be in the area through the weekend. It still looks like the weather to be most concerned about will develop early next week.
Fairly quiet weather will be in the area for today with a few clouds this morning, then more sun developing. Temps will be a little cooler with highs in the 20s. The northwest wind will be around 5 to 15 mph, not bad, but noticeable. The wind will die down for the Wausau Christmas parade this evening as temps drop into the teens. It will be chilly but decent weather.
There will be a few more clouds in the Northwoods tonight as another Alberta Clipper weather system moves in from the northwest. It could end up producing a dusting of snow in a few spots.
The wind will turn to a more southerly direction on Saturday and that will start to warm things up. With a mix of sun and clouds, highs on Saturday will reach the low 30s. The mercury will continue to go up into Sunday with highs in the mid to upper 30s. A few sprinkles or flurries are possible on Sunday but other than that it will be mostly cloudy and mild. It should be good weather for the Packers game in Green Bay.
On Monday an arctic cold front will move down out of Canada and merge with an area of low pressure moving across the center of the nation. This will produce some light snow in our area. Right now it looks like snow amounts could range from an inch or so in the southern part of the area to 4 to 5 inches in the Northwoods. The Wausau area could be in the 2 to 4 inch range. The weather will turn breezy as well, so there will be some difficulties traveling.
Temps will start to fall through the 20s on Monday and then all the way down into the single digits on Tuesday. On Wednesday the high temperature might not rise above zero. Low temps by Wednesday and Thursday morning will be in the double digits below zero. Get ready for a brief spell of bitter cold.
Have a very nice Friday! Meteorologist Justin Loew, 4:30 a.m. 6-December-2019
