      I hope your week has been good despite several rounds of light snow causing trouble for the travelers!

      We'll have to deal with another round of snow later on today, which could linger into Saturday morning. A low pressure system drops down from the northwest, interacting with warmer air, and as it does, it'll kick up a fairly narrow band of snow that stretches across central and northern Minnesota, right through central and northern Wisconsin. This won't be a big snow storm for the Chippewa Valley, but it will be enough to cause a few headaches on the highway.

      Temperatures will top out in the low 20s today as scattered snow showers begin to develop this afternoon, becoming more widespread and intense tonight. Snow amounts will likely only be a trace up to an inch across most of western Wisconsin, with perhaps a couple inches north of highway 8.  Saturday, the snow will come to an end rather early and afternoon highs will push into the upper 20s. By Sunday and Monday, highs will be in the lower 30s with a slight chance for flurries or light snow. There doesn't appear to be any big snow storms in the near future, but we are keeping our eyes peeled for a developing storm on Thursday, December 21st that could impact parts of the upper Midwest. Stay tuned! Have a fantastic day! Stormtracker 18 Weather Meteorologist LeAnn Lombardo
