Minimal Snow Chances this Week, But Winter Chill Arrvies. finally looks like winter across the Stateline, but this week it will really begin to feel like it. While some of the snow will melt today, the snowy ground will also help to reinforce the cold feel that will arrive later this week.

An incoming cold front that arrives Tuesday does bring a very small chance for flurries in the morning but its the cold that we will really notice. That front along with a strong low that will track across the Canadian border will help dislodge cold arctic air. Highs will only make it into the 20's beginning Wednesday, and will only make it into the low 20's Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Not only that but wind chills will be in the teens and single digits through the end of the week. With snow on the ground, it reflects the sunlight and warmth, and so its harder to get temperatures to warm.

Some models indicate that relief from the cold arrives next week, but at this point its too far out to say.

The weather pattern this week will be slightly less active, with just minimal snow chances through the work week. A few flakes will fly, with a small chance for a light snow showers Wednesday night into early Thursday. However, it doesn't look to be a big impact to the area. Our next best chance for snow will be will an incoming system that we are watching on Saturday.
