Some of the snow that fell yesterday will start to melt today. We will have fairly cloudy skies but the sun should peek out enough to boost high temperatures into the mid-30s, making it the first day with above freezing temps since February 3rd. Conditions will be a little breezy as well with southwest winds at 10 to 20 mph.
A weak trough of low pressure will zip across our area tonight and it will bring a 60% chance of light snow showers or perhaps a mix with sleet and a few drops of rain. This system will clear out by Tuesday morning, leaving us with another mild day with a few breaks of sun. Highs on Tuesday should reach the upper 30s to around 40.
A cold front and low pressure system moving through Northcentral Wisconsin Tuesday evening could again produce some light snow or a brief wintry mix. Accumulations might be up to a couple of inches. The cold front will also cool things down a bit. Highs on Wednesday will be in the low to mid-30s. On Thursday highs will only be in the 20s. The good news is that we should see a little more sun break out on both Wednesday and Thursday.
The clouds will increase once again on Friday ahead of a low pressure system that could bring some snow to the area Friday night into early Saturday. Other than the snow early Saturday, the weekend should be decent. Another slight chance of snow showers could develop on Sunday. Highs should reach the low to mid-30s on Friday and Saturday, before falling a bit into the upper 20s on Sunday.
Have an excellent Monday! Meteorologist Justin Loew, Morning Update, 22-February-2021
