GENERAL PICTURE:

No major changes. Arctic cold will be weakening its grip the region in next day or two. Two low pressure systems still look to bring some meaningful snows to portions of the central and northern Midwest over the weekend and again early next week, with a quick hitting shot of arctic air Thursday, then back to average level temps.

1-4 DAY FORECAST:

Otherwise, arctic high pressure will continue to dominate the region today, keeping things quiet and cold.

The arctic air will begin to ease as we head though the day today and then more noticeably over the weekend.

The first of two low pressure systems looks to spread some snows into portions of IA, MO and IL later Saturday night. That snow area will then continue to work to the east-northeast and it looks like it will be SE IA, the northern ˝ of IL/IN, northern 1/3rd of OH and southern lower MI that see the main band of snow, with a solid 1-4” likely and areas of 4”+ also possible.

5-10 DAY FORECAST:

A second low looks to track through later Monday night through late Tuesday night. The confidence in the exact track and strength with this system is still a bit shaky, but idea remains the main band of snows with this second low would be further north and also be wider.

As things stand right now, a general 3-8” is seen to fall in SE MN, SW northern and portions of central WI, most of the UP and into the northern ˝ of lower MI, with the precip falling as, or mixing with rains, to the south of the main snow area.

The second half of next week looks to be fairly quiet.

Temps look to run near average for much of next week, with a shot of below average temps possible for later Wednesday into Thursday and then back to average by Friday and the following weekend.
