4-12 Inches accumulate, a couple more expected


Today:  Mostly cloudy with light snow and flurries, 1 to 2 inches accumulation possible.   High: 24   Wind: ENE 15 to 20, gusting to 25

Tuesday: Partly sunny. High: 26 Wind: Becoming SE 5-10

A WINTER STORM WARNING remains in effect for Price county until noon and for Taylor county until 6pm. The rest the area is under a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY through noon or this afternoon. The heavy snow is over with. Additional light snow could accumulate another inch or two through the morning hours on this Monday. Some freezing drizzle might mix with the light snow in the southern half of the area and this could cause a little icing on the road ways. Be careful driving around Northcentral Wisconsin today. With mostly cloudy skies and an east-northeast wind gusting 15 to 20 mph, high temps will only reach the low to mid 20s, essentially not moving much from this morning's lows. We should experience some partial clearing tonight and partly sunny skies tomorrow. Lows will dip into the single digits for those areas seeing the clearing and then high temps should climb back up into the mid 20s on Tuesday.

The weather pattern later in the week will remain active but the next significant storm will likely miss Wisconsin. As of now I am only calling for a 30% chance of light snow Wednesday night. Another 30% chance of light snow will develop on Saturday, but it doesn't look like there will be much accumulation. The next chance of significant snow will not arrive until early next week.

The main trend later this week will be cooler than normal temperatures. The only day that will be above normal is Wednesday with a high temperature in the low to mid 30s. The mercury will climb up to around 30 on Thursday but then drop into the low 20s on Friday and linger around 20 on Saturday. High temps should rebound a little on Sunday, back into the lower and middle 20s.

Have a good Monday! Meteorologist Justin Loew. 4:30am, 21-February-2011
