Another Winning Weekend!

  We sure have been on a winning streak with Mother Nature lately in that we have thus far recently managed to: A) miss a significant snowfall event that ended up falling just a couple hours away from here, and B) Two weekends in a row (last weekend and this upcoming weekend) of above average […]

Mild Again Today…Windy Wednesday

What a wind storm we managed to get ourselves into late last week as the Whiteside County Airport weather station measured a gust of 55 MPH and several other regional sites were also in the 55-60 MPH range causing a few semi accidents on area roadways. Now that the wind is past we’ve been experiencing […]

One-Two Punch This Upcoming Weekend

Sure is nice to have a few days of sunshine especially after going through the colder temperatures over the last few days. Yesterday we made it up to the middle 20s for highs, just warm enough to safely wash all of the road salt off the car finally! We’ll continue the sunshine today with temperature […]

Few Flurries Today…Cold Air to Stick Around

Staying Mild into the Weekend…Briefly Colder Next Week

Nice to see some sunshine back in these parts yesterday after several days filled with cloud cover after our latest storm system departed from earlier in the week. We couldn’t even manage to get a dusting of snow from that system which I’m sure is ok with many of you :).  We did manage however […]

Continued Mild…Strong Storm Looms Next Week

Today we’ll be briefly cooler as the storm system responsible for the light rain yesterday continues eastward. Behind it colder […]

Mild Weekend Ahead

While the east coast begins to brace for a major winter storm we are staying calm and mild here in the Sauk Valley with high pressure firmly in control. Thankfully this high pressure system doesn’t have nearly the strength of the cold air the previous one did otherwise we’d easily be back down in the […]

Bitter Cold Moving Out

Who’s tired of the bitter cold temperatures? Thankfully they are on the way out as the arctic high pressure system responsible for them marches eastward taking the colder air with it. Slowly moderating temperatures can be expected as we move through the week. Today we’re already seeing a little improvement as highs will reach the […]
