Rain & Snow Chances This Weekend

Near record low temperatures this morning will make for quite a cold day ahead of us. Even some sunshine won’t be able to boost our highs too much this afternoon as we remain in the lower to middle 30s with a biting easterly breeze.

There is some warmth waiting to move back into the area but it will arrive with a chance of rain mixing with snow late Saturday night into Sunday morning. No accumulations are expected. Temperatures closer to normal arrive by Monday into Tuesday with more chances for showers as temperatures head for the 50s near the middle of next week.

We’re excited to announce that we’ll once again be providing live coverage on Facebook of the Twin Cities Holiday Parade next Saturday, November 18th beginning at 12:45PM. If you can’t see the parade in person we hope to see you on the live stream!

Andrew Stutzke was born and raised in beautiful Sterling, Illinois. As a young child, he was continually fascinated by the weather, especially thunderstorms. Often times he could be found glued to the television watching The Weather Channel. Upon entering high school it was clear what his area of study would be once he started college. After graduating from Sterling High School in 2004, he attended Sauk Valley Community College in Dixon, Illinois where he received his Associate of Science degree in 2010. In 2016 he received his B.S. in Meteorology from Northern Illinois University.

Andrew is currently the Friday and Saturday evening meteorologist at WIFR-TV in Rockford, IL.

In his spare time, Andrew enjoys listening to the latest Alt-Rock and Indie music, storm spotting, walking the many paths around the area, and spending time with family.
