Snow is winding down across the area; quieter days are ahead
Little if any additional snowfall accumulation for the rest of today
ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – Light snow will continue to fall across much of the area throughout the afternoon as the storm system that brought heavy snow last night works its way toward the Great Lakes. We’ll have light snow off and on this afternoon before activity tapers to just some flurries as we head into the evening hours. Little if any additional accumulation is expected to add to the sizeable amounts we measured earlier in the day. The range of totals thus far has been four to nine inches with five to eight inch totals the most common on the local map. High temperatures will be in the upper 20s to around 30 degrees with a brisk northwest breeze that will keep wind chill values in the teens.
Temperatures will drop into the upper teens tonight with a gusty northwest breeze that will reach 25 miles per hour at times.
A few breaks of sunshine will be possible on Friday, especially in the afternoon in the wake of this large storm system. Temperatures will be seasonably chilly with readings likely in the low and mid-20s tomorrow afternoon and a slight northwest breeze.
The weather this weekend will be fairly quiet in our area. Saturday looks mainly overcast with a bit of a southwest breeze and high temperatures will be in the mid-20s. Some sunshine may break through the clouds at times on Sunday and high temperatures will again be in the mid-20s with wind chill values in the teens.
After a generally gray and seasonably chilly Monday, a weak storm system will bring a chance for some light snow to the area on Tuesday as it migrates from Iowa into Wisconsin just to our southeast. After that, clouds will gradually give way to sunnier weather later in the upcoming week while high temperatures get progressively colder. High temperatures will be in the mid-20s through Wednesday before dropping to the teens and perhaps single digits by the following weekend.
