The cold forecast for Western/Northwestern WI

Hope everyone is enjoying this cold weather… it will be around for sometime….We will have a few warm days coming up later upcoming work week, however temps will average below normal for at least the next 2 weeks…More on that later…. This morning we did see snow that will keep going off and on right through Monday….Still some snow chances throughout the forecast cycle and even in the long term preiod.

As of 1 PM all station are reporting cloudy skies.... Temps are in the middle 30s....Winds range from 14 to 22 MPH with gusts up to 30 MPH at some of the stations....

Strong area of low pressure is forecasted to lift into Canada….Which is centered over far Northern MN as of this writing…Shows up rather well on the satellite imagery… CAA well under way… Winds will still be a problem today and into the early evening hrs…. Have really took a bite out of the temps for today will cut them into the upper 30s to lower 40s…. Will leave lows for tonight stand… Have cut highs on Monday also will run with lower to middle 40s,left low alone….Have cut highs on Tuesday to reflect lower to middle 50s ….Did change other thing around in the forecast also……

System still close to us on Monday to keep snow showers alive, could see some rain mixing in..Skies should become partly cloudy by time we head into the later afternoon/early evening….A break in the action for Tuesday…Wednesday things get tricky..Model disagreements showing up…. GFS has us somewhat warm with a chance of thunderstorms, meanwhile ECWMF keep us in the cooler with just rain for Wednesday night into Thursday …So will blend the two together..Will run with temps in the upper 50s for Wed and Thur with lows in the lower to middle 40s….System moves out of the area setting the stages for a rather nice Friday with temps in the lower to middle 60s….Upcoming weekend looks kind of interesting…Looks like we may be dealing with some severe thunderstorms?? It way too early to say this for sure, but the possibilities are there…..

So overall temps will slowly warm to the middle 60s by the end of the short/middle term forecast cycle, however will still average out below normal…
