FIRST ALERT FORECAST: Snow is possible across parts of the Coulee Region for Monday. -Erik Dean
Alert Days have been declared for Monday - Wednesday.
DISCUSSION: Well, I am starting to sound like a broken record. We had another chilly day across the Coulee Region. Highs hovered right around the freezing mark with some places seeing temperatures in the 20s. Feels Like Temperatures continued to stay in the low to mid 20s. This trend will continue for tomorrow, but there is a difference in the forecast. Snow chances will start to pick up across the Coulee Region. Some places won’t see much on Monday. If you don’t, you’ll see a better chance on Tuesday – Wednesday. Due to this, Alert Days have been declared for Monday – Wednesday.
Here is how things will play out for your Monday. We will start off with cloudy skies across the Coulee Region. Highs will be in the low – mid 30s. Snow chances will start to increase as we head into the afternoon – evening hours. The southern part of the News 8 Now Viewing Area won’t see much of anything at that time. This will be geared towards the central & northern part of the viewing area. Now for the southern part of the area, your chance will come on Tuesday – Wednesday as another system will push through at that time.
Here is the way it will play out for Tuesday; by 6 AM, a line stretching from Decorah to Volk Field and points south will see the first flakes. By noon, it stretches up from Preston to near the Eau Claire area. As we head into the 6 PM time frame, everyone in the News 8 Now Viewing Area will see snowfall. Most places could see a quick 1-2″ when it’s all said and done by Wednesday. As we head into Monday – Wednesday, please make sure you have the News 8000 First Alert Weather App on your mobile device to receive the latest information, the 8 Day Forecast and the Hour By Hour Forecast for your location. We also post video forecasts throughout the day so you can stay up to date.
8-DAY FORECAST: Once that system pushes through, we will see much cooler temperatures for the second half of the work week. Highs for Thursday will be in the mid 20s and by Friday we will see temperatures in the upper teens – low 20s. Wind Chill values will be in the single digits – low teens. The bottom line as we head into next weekend; bundle up!
Enjoy your evening.
