Increasing snowcover brings decreasing temperatures

Over the next five days, several clipper systems will bring some accumulating snows to the Upper Midwest. Unfortunately for snowlovers around here we won’t get much. There’s a chance of a light wintry mix late tonight and again Thursday night into Friday. However, the accumulating snows will remain north of the IL/WI border.

Even though we won’t get the ground white around here, it’ll still get mighty chilly next week. The reason being? We’ll put down snow to our north which will won’t allow an advancing Arctic airmass to modify before entering our neck of the woods. Right now we’re projecting high temperatures in the middle 20s with nighttime temperatures in the low teens (and perhaps single digits). It’s not anything too out of the ordinary for January, however it will be a shock to our system after such a warm December. -ES
