      We saw a good mix of clouds and some peeks of sunshine this afternoon. Temperatures were seasonable as we topped out in the middle to upper 20s for most of the Chippewa Valley. These temperatures will only drop a few degrees overnight as clouds will remain in tact. Tonight you can expect quiet conditions with lows in the teens and low 20s with calm winds. There will be one note of caution when it comes to traveling overnight as patchy freezing fog will develop. This is as dangerous as black ice and should be taken into consideration if you have travel plans tonight into Sunday morning.

      Sunday will feature some patchy morning freezing fog for that early morning church commute. If you wait it out long enough, the patchy freezing fog should be gone by 9am leaving behind mostly cloudy skies.  Temperatures will creep into the low 30s for the afternoon under light northerly winds. Overnight, skies remain mostly cloudy with temperatures in the teens and low 20s.

      Moving forward through next week, the jet stream will dip significantly to the west as a large trough gets carved out over the Rockies. This will allow cold Canadian air spill south into the upper Midwest and it also allow for a more active weather pattern. The middle to end of next week may be active and cold enough to produce some accumulating snowfall. This storm is on our radar and we will be tracking it and seeing how it may affect holiday travel. There is still lots of uncertainty on the track, accumulations, and even precipitation types south of the Chippewa Valley. Stay update on the forecast as we near the middle to end of the next work week. I'll have all your forecast details on the warmer weather in the meantime at 6pm and 10pm! See you then and enjoy your Saturday evening! -Stormtracker 18 Meteorologist Alex Wasilenko
