Ice and snow today; small doses of snow are expected throughout the week
High temps will be in the seasonable low 30s all week
ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – We’re starting the week on a messy note, at least in much of the local area, as a storm system is bringing icy weather for our Monday. Freezing rain and sleet are creating a travel headache on the Iowa side of the border today as a storm system grazes us to the south. Up to a tenth of an inch of ice is likely this morning and a Winter Weather Advisory will be in effect until 11:00 AM.
Another disturbance will bring some light snow showers for the Minnesota side of the border in the mid and late afternoon, but little if any accumulation is expected. High temperatures will be in the low 30s with a brisk northwest breeze that will keep wind chill values in the low 20s.
The snow will wind down after the evening commute, possibly leaving a few slick patches on area roads and highways. Clouds will clear off later tonight with low temperatures in the teens and light north winds.
Tuesday will be a little brighter and quieter, but a weak disturbance will bring a few isolated snow showers to north Iowa in the afternoon. We’ll have occasional sunshine during the day with high temperatures in the low 30s and light south winds.
Wednesday looks like the sunniest day of the week, but temperatures will only reach the upper 20s in the afternoon with light north winds.
A storm system will clip the area to the southeast on Thursday, bringing a chance for light snow in the late afternoon and evening. A minor coating of snowfall is possible as a result and high temperatures will be in the low 30s.
After a bright and seasonably cool Friday, another storm system will move into the area over the weekend, bringing a chance for light snow or a wintry mixture mainly on Sunday into early Monday. We’ll have mostly cloudy skies during the weekend with high temperatures in the low 30s. Minor snowfall accumulation is possible Sunday night.
