We saw another beautiful, mild February day Sunday and we'll get one more pleasant day before snow chances return Tuesday. Tonight, temperatures will fall back into the upper teens and lower 20s with mostly clear skies. Winds will be light out of the north at 3-8 mph. Will also need to watch out for areas of patchy fog to develop after midnight, lasting into early Monday.
Areas of patchy fog may slow down the morning commute Monday. Sunshine is likely for the first half of the day with clouds increasing during the afternoon. Temperatures will be seasonal in the lower 30s.
Tuesday will be our only active weather day in the coming week, with a chance for accumulating snow possible in the area throughout the day. There are still uncertainties in terms of how much snow will fall and where. A low pressure system will stay well to our south, keeping the bulk of the precipitation south of the viewing area. Current models are showing the potential for 1-3" with lesser totals to the north of I-90 and high totals towards Decorah and Charles City, IA. Winds will be breezy out of the north with highs in the lower 30s.
Colder air filters into the region for the midweek, with high temperatures in the lower 20s on Wednesday with mostly cloudy skies. Sunshine returns Thursday with temperatures only in the lower teens. Temperatures slowly warm into the upper teens on Friday and then the mid 20s on Saturday. More seasonal temperatures in the 30s look possible for Sunday.
