With temps starting today in the upper 10s to upper 20s across the N Plains, the temperature shall only go one way over the next 72 hours and that’s down. Arctic high pressure shall settle over the N Plains and Friday AM looks coldest of the season, especially across E Nebraska, Iowa, southern Minnesota where the deepest snow cover remains from the weekend storm.

Latest US snow cover at 43.7%. Note deepest snow from N/Central Nebraska through southern Minnesota, NW Iowa into Wisconsin.

As the HP settles overhead Thu-Fri, look for the lowest readings over the fresh 6-12 inch snowpack. Could well see first below 0 for the Twin Cities where they picked up 3 inches.

-5 to -10 quite possible over the deepest snow cover.
