VERY BRIEF WINTER STORM, THEN ARCTIC CHILL: Light to moderate amounts of snow area possible through the overnight. Then very cold air works in with lots of sun through mid-week. More snow shower chances are on the way to approach next weekend as we will have up and down temperatures.
OVERNIGHT: A fast-moving low will move through during the overnight. It will give some a brief period of heavy snow, especially in the south half of the viewing area, which could pick up 4-7". There will be less amounts going further north. For the latest snowfall totals, see the graphic below. It will also be windy with blowing snow and very cold wind chills. The system will be gone by mid-morning Monday.
MONDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY: After the snow moves out for Monday morning, and we will have increasing sun by the afternoon, but a breezy north wind will make temperatures continue to fall. High temperatures will be in the single digits south and the single digits below zero north, falling into the teens below for lows by Tuesday morning. Tuesday and Wednesday we will have arctic cold over us with highs in the single digits below zero and some of us having lows -20 to -30.
THURSDAY THROUGH SUNDAY: There are a couple chances for more light snow showers on Thursday, and then again Friday night into Saturday morning. Otherwise we will be mainly dry with partly to mostly cloudy skies. Temperatures will rebound back into the teens Thursday and the 20s on Friday before taking a dip again into the weekend.
