      Today's Forecast Image
      • 20°

      The sun will shine all day, and even though temperatures will be cooler compared to Tuesday, it will be pleasant if you wear a hat, gloves, and heavy coat. The wind will be light from the west, so wind chills will not be a big problem. A surface high will slide from the central United States over the Great Lakes tonight, keeping our weather quiet. The sky will be clear this evening, then cloud cover will gradually increase after midnight. Tomorrow will be cloudier and more active, as a surface low spins up and moves over the Midwest. Expect flurries and light snow showers after noon with up to a half inch possible by 6 p.m. Between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. Friday morning, snow will fall steady with totals of 1 to 3 inches possible. Of course, roads and sidewalks will be slippery, but the snow will not be too much trouble to shovel; it will not be the wet, heavy snow that we can see in the fall and spring. Cloud cover will decrease on Friday, and temps will rise into the 30s. This weekend, another surface low will spin up in the central United States and move northeast. The system will likely produce snow in our area, and possibly, a wintry mix of sleet and freezing rain. We will watch temperatures closely; if most of the precipitation is snow, totals of 2 to 4 inches are possible. Sunday and Monday will be quiet with a mostly sunny sky and highs in the lower to middle 30s. Have a fantastic day! Stormtracker 18 Weather Chief Meteorologist Nick Grunseth
