After the snow Sunday, 66.9% of the lower 48 states have snow on the ground. This is an unusually high percentage for this time of year.
With all of the snow on the ground it is going to be hard to warm up in the next week or so. Today has been a COLD one with temperatures in the single digits and wind chills in the teens below zero most of the day. Here is the wind chill at 5 PM.
The next chance of snow will be Tuesday night. The snow will once again be very fluffy like the recent snow. Snow accumulation overnight is expected to be around 1”. There is very little moisture associated with the low.
Wednesday will be another day in the deep freeze with highs in the single digits. Thursday through early next week will be slightly warmer with highs in the 20s. We have a couple more chances of light snow…Saturday and Monday.
The 8-14 day outlook, from the Climate Prediction Center, indicates higher chances of colder than normal temperatures and above normal precipitation.
