Key Messages

- Wind chills will once again fall 25 below to 30 below through tomorrow morning.

- Multiple clippers are expected Friday through Monday, resulting in several inches of snow when all is said and done.

With high pressure centered overhead, winds have become calm allowing for a brief break from bitterly cold wind chills. It's still plenty cold with most locations struggling to make it above zero. Another very cold night is on tap as winds begin to strengthen again on the backside of the high as it continues to move off to the southeast. Another Wind Chill Advisory is in place area wide through tomorrow morning.

Temperatures tomorrow will manage to get into the teens and 20s thanks to warm air filtering in from the south ahead of our first of three clippers. Did raise temps a bit out in far western Minnesota into the upper 20s. However, gusty winds will ramp up into the late morning hours, so wind chills will again make it feel like it's in the single digits below zero for the eastern half of the CWA with readings of 5 to 10 above out west. Winds look especially feisty along the Buffalo Ridge, so have introduced a Wind Advisory for our far western counties in coordination with neighboring offices. Light snow will move in during the evening and overnight hours with totals of around a half inch to an inch. Highest amounts are expected across central Minnesota and western Wisconsin. Winds will gradually turn from south to northwest overnight with the passage of this system. Some stronger gusts may linger into the overnight hours, so some patchy blowing snow is possible, particularly across western Minnesota.

Moving into the weekend, we'll be dry during the day Saturday before another clipper approaches by late afternoon. This one looks to set up a little further to the south and has a deep DGZ, so another inch or two is possible by Sunday morning. Our third and final weekend clipper is still on track to be the potentially strongest of the set. A slight uptick in moisture looks to aid in the QPF amounts, which will likely allow for a swath of a few inches of snow to fall across the area. Snow develops from northwest to southeast by Sunday evening and continues into early Monday. Another arctic airmass moves in by Monday night and lasts into midweek.
