December actually started on a seasonably mild note with highs in the 30s for the first 4 days of the month. However the massive arctic air mass has been driving east across the nation and now we are dealing with readings about 20 to 25 degrees below normal. Lows will reach the -0s with highs only in the 5 to 10 above range Friday and Saturday. It won't be quite as windy the next 36 hours as it was Thursday. However those west winds could still be up around 15 mph at times, so it will still have a nasty cold bite. On a plus note we should have lots of sunshine as the dry air and high pressure settle over the region.
A low pressure system in the Southern Rockies will lift northeast late Saturday and Sunday and push clouds and moisture back at the Midwest. It appears we will get a dose of fluffy dry snow from this system throughout Sunday and ending early Monday morning. Right now we are projecting a good inch or two around the TV-9 area with some 3" totals not out of the question. Areas over far eastern Wisconsin could receive over 6" thanks to enhancement off of Lake Michigan. It will warm slightly ahead of this system with highs in the mid or upper 10s Sunday. Colder air will plunge back into our region Monday afternoon and Tuesday. A weak disturbance will slide through Tuesday causing a few snow showers perhaps. After that it looks dry Wednesday and Thursday. There should be a moderation of temperatures again by Thursday.
Hope you stay warm! Meteorologist Tony Schumacher, 4:10 p.m., 5-December 2013
