Our active weather pattern that is right now featuring some seasonably frigid conditions continues today as a weak disturbance moves through the Upper Mississippi Valley, bringing fluffy snowfall to the area. Look for half an inch or so of fluffy accumulation in the morning, but skies will then clear fairly quickly as high pressure nudges its way in for the afternoon. High temperatures will be in the teens with light northwest winds.
Bright, quiet weather will hang around for Tuesday under that area of high pressure while warmer air begins to work its way into the area on gusty south winds. High temperatures will be in the upper teens and lower 20s tomorrow which is still a few degrees below the seasonal average, but a slight improvement over recent days.
A large storm system will work its way in from the west for the midweek, bringing light snow to the area late Tuesday night into Wednesday with an inch or so of accumulation possible before warmer air builds in and rain begins to mix in for Wednesday afternoon. Rain and snow will be possible for Thursday and Friday as high temperatures will be slightly above freezing and overnight lows will hover near the freezing mark.
The weekend looks dry and just a little bit colder with high temperatures near 30 degrees.
