Weather Update for Monday, January 22, 2018 – Early morning fog and rain continues into Monday

Showers and thunderstorms increase into Monday morning. Fog in the early morning. Not exactly a sunny week, but we will take it because the average temperature will be above normal for this time of year staying near or above freezing until the weekend. As normal as normal can be for this area. It’s like saying cousin Eddie is normal. Maybe in this area not so much, but elsewhere, he would fit right in. Most of you are probably getting bored with the use of National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation characters as much as we are using them. We will move on … Continue reading Weather Update for Monday, January 22, 2018 – Early morning fog and rain continues into Monday

Weekend Weather Update for Sunday, January 21, 2018 – Early morning fog near the lake and northern suburbs

Fog, locally dense is expected today, with drizzle building to occasional showers by evening, followed by showers and thunderstorms overnight tonight into Monday morning. Unseasonably mild temperatures will continue until a cold front moves through Monday night. Behind the cold front Monday night, rain showers are expected to change to snow before ending, with some minor accumulations possible, mainly near the WI/IL border. Not much accumulation to speak of Monday or Tuesday, but the temperatures will drop and wind will pick up as the front moves into the area. I would say if you are on the road back, you … Continue reading Weekend Weather Update for Sunday, January 21, 2018 – Early morning fog near the lake and northern suburbs

Weekend Weather Update for Saturday, January 20, 2018

Tonight through the day Saturday looks dry. Saturday night a little drizzle smizzle and fog will begin and last through the day Sunday before it changes to rain Sunday evening with periods of rain through the day Monday. Through the weekend, high temps will gradually increase into low to middle 40s for Sunday and upper 40s to lower 50s on Monday. Although our friends at the National Weather Service are pointing to 50 on Monday, I am thinking we will see 50 on Sunday. The bet is on for a M&M Blizzard at DQ. Another Spring tease before we take … Continue reading Weekend Weather Update for Saturday, January 20, 2018

Weather for Friday, January 19, 2018

Temperatures will be above normal Friday through Monday, melting what’s left of the snow cover over the area. It will be breezy on Friday afternoon and night. A storm system will affect the region Sunday through Monday, with fog and light rain or drizzle initially starting Saturday night and then periods of rain and breezy conditions late Sunday night through Monday. Before the precipitation ends Monday night, it should mix with and then change to light snow or flurries. I’m thinking maybe even a 50 top off on Sunday or Monday. It’s extremely possible with the warm air moving in, … Continue reading Weather for Friday, January 19, 2018

Weather for Thursday, January 18, 2018

Breezy conditions will be seen through Thursday and that may lead to patchy blowing snow in open, rural locations. Temperatures will generally moderate through the end of the week, with above freezing temperatures expected areawide by Friday. Saturday looks to have some sun before clouds move in and rain potential by Saturday night into Sunday. Snow melt will pick up considerably by Sunday. For those with river interests, this could result in some ice jam breakups early next week. Pretty boring forecast for those of you who are looking for a weather event of biblical proportions, it’s not going to … Continue reading Weather for Thursday, January 18, 2018

Weather for Wednesday, January 17, 2018

After another cold day Wednesday, expect moderating temps for late week before precipitation chances arrive over the weekend. As warm air moves into the area and the likelihood of precipitation diminishes, we will be removing the Randy, HHHH and CLC Advisories. As those of you who have contacted the National Weather Service have found, the Randy, HHHH and CLC Advisories are those of The Bill Moran Show meteorology department. Although the NWS wishes they have devised these advisories for their use, they can only dream. We own them! So it appears we will be in a cycle of warming weather … Continue reading Weather for Wednesday, January 17, 2018
