Snowfall Totals; A Frigid Weekend

November 22, 2013 0 Comments

The fast-moving storm system that dropped a dusting of snow on our area Thursday night has moved on to the east, but not before pulling in some cold air and priming us for some winter-like weather this weekend.  Snowfall totals were very much on the light side with generally an inch or less of accumulation reported.

Local snowfall totals from Thursday night and vert early Friday morning.

It looks like much of this fresh coating of snow will linger for a few more days as temperatures are going to be heading even further downward.  An arctic cold front from Manitoba and northwest Ontario is going to swing through our area later this evening, ushering the coldest air mass of the season to date.  We’ll experience a flurry or two tonight with the passage of the front through the Upper Mississippi Valley, but the most noticeable impact will be strong, gusty north winds that will drop our wind chill values to zero or below late tonight and for Saturday morning.  We’ll have plenty of sunshine behind the front this weekend, but highs will only be in the teens Saturday and then the mid 20s Sunday.  In between, we’ll likely experience the coldest night of the season Saturday night as temperatures drop to around zero.  This weather will be more typical of January than late November and it appears that we’ll have winter-like conditions for most of the remainder of the month.

Here’s a look at some more area snowfall totals:
