Quick Update; Snow Next Week?

A very cold low pressure system is expected to affect the area Monday and Tuesday of next week (see predicted temperatures below). This system will pack enough cold air and moisture, that, if the winds cooperate and ingredients come together just right, snow levels could drop to near 500'. At this time, there is at […]

Possibly breezy late tonight & Sunday moring

Wind gusts up to 30 mph possible overnight (strongest 2am-6am Sunday). The rest of Sunday should have breezes below 20 mph. This storm system is expected to bring just over 1/2" of rain through Sunday evening (most of the rain occurs before noon with just isolated/scattered showers Sunday afternoon). Lowest snow levels: 2500'. Monday looks […]

Happy Groundhog Day! Series of storms ahead, no lowland snow...

WEATHER CAMS: I'm ordering the camera systems tomorrow and should have them installed later next week or early the following week. The poll favored downtown, so the first two go up there. One looking west from the Chamber of Commerce, the other looking east from Stacey's. Bohemia Gold Mining Museum may host a third one […]

Cold days/nights, rain possible Friday

We didn't get any snow last night, but we knew that the chances were minimal due to little moisture with the system. By the time cold enough air to cause snow arrived, there was just too little moisture left to work with. Winds overnight were stronger than forecast and therefore evaporated the wet pavement (along […]

Just some flakes or a light dusting overnight, below freezing temperatures

Snow levels through this evening will stay above 2000', then lower to near 500 feet after 11:00pm. This system has very little moisture, so showers today and this evening will total less than 1/10". Any snow between 11pm tonight and 6:00am Sunday will be either as just some flakes to possibly a light dusting of […]

Maybe a few snowflakes or a dusting, but very cold!

Best time for snow looks to be 11pm Saturday to sunrise Sunday. We could see just some flakes to up to an inch. That's about it since the system doesn't have a lot of moisture. Biggest impact will be the coldest temperatures of the season so far. Lows 15-20 likely Sunday night and Monday night. […]

Icy cold weather ahead, possible dusting of snow!

A dusting of snow is possible sometime between Saturday night and about 10am Sunday. This system will be fast moving and doesn't have a lot of moisture, so no snowmageddon. Biggest impact will be very cold temperatures. Breezy Sunday/Monday, so it will feel much colder than actual temperature. Details: On Friday, cold system #1 comes through […]

Uneventful through Thursday, then Colder + Snow?

Snow possibilities increase Sat/Sun. Otherwise, uneventful through Thursday: Night/morning fog and/or low clouds with possible slow burn off and very light to calm winds. Arctic Air may then be dragged into our area by two low pressure systems - the first on Friday and the second on later Saturday or Sunday. I should note that […]

Drier + Colder than Normal next 10+ days

Dry weather and cold temperatures today and Friday, then some light showers later Saturday morning through the evening (less than 1/4"). An extended period of dry weather is likely Sunday through all of next week and probably to the end of the month, which means much below normal precipitation will continue. Expect night and morning […]

Possibly breezy/slightly windy, colder (but no snow here), dry period ahead...

High pressure is expected to build in next Saturday through the end of the month so we'll likely be drier than normal Jan 21-31 with maybe a weak system or two sneaking in (light rain). As of 11am Jan 14, we've recorded 15.61" of precipitation in Cottage Grove since the start of the water year […]
