It’s late, but the weather is still ongoing. It’s going to be a very chilly forecast!
At 1253AM, CT, Madison was reporting a temperature of 22 degrees with overcast skies. There are reports of flurries across the region as colder air continues to build into the region. The brisk westerly flow will continue tomorrow, with the threat for light snow persisting thanks to the chilly air and modicum of instability.
A broad trough over the northern Rockies is helping establish a weak warm front that will develop late on Saturday. Detached from the primary system, still laying in the Mountains, this boundary will function as its own perturbation, with a healthy batch of snow developing in the Dakotas and Minnesota. It will just reach Madison by the time Saturday comes to a close, with heavier accumulations expected on Sunday.

Anthony and I have each posted a forecast for Wisconsin tonight, so we will definitely have to see who wears it better. I might be the only one honoring the flurries in the forecat tonight. Here is a look at the satellite imagery for the evening. You can see a whorl up in eastern Canada that continues to drive westerlies and cold air into the Midwest
