A Little Weekend Snow; A Lot Of Cold Next Week

The actual wind chill advisory was only in effect until noon CST Friday for southeast Minnesota, northeast Iowa, and southwest into central Wisconsin but that didn't mean it was going to suddenly warm up in those areas. The real blast of cold arrives Thursday night and into Friday.

The national meteorological service reports a multi-day episode of very cold wind chills is expected. Light snow is also possible early Saturday, Saturday night into Sunday, and Sunday night into Monday.




The weather service says Friday's deep freeze is a preview of next week, which could bring more than a half-foot of snow to parts of IL and the potential for the "coldest stretch in years". A Winter Weather Advisory (purple-shaded area) for generally 3 to 6-inches of snow and blowing snow is forecast with a gradation of heaviest snow north to least far southern portions of the Winter Weather Advisory.

Saturday morning, temperatures will fall to minus 5 or colder and result in wind chills of -15 to -20. The state Department of Health Services wants you to take extra precautions. Make sure you wear a hat and gloves.Wind chills as low as 14 below zero expected. Accumulating snowfall returns to the forecast on Sunday through Monday. We have the chance for substantial snow. Exposed skin in that of cold can be frost bitten in no more than 10 minutes.
