Don't put your snow shovel away yet. Two more snowstorms will affect the area this week. In addition to the snow, temperatures will be falling a bit.
The storm system that brought 1 to 2 inches of snow to the area last night might still produce some patchy freezing drizzle or flurries this morning along with cloudy skies. If we are lucky, the clouds will break up a little bit this afternoon. High temps should reach the low 30s around midday, then a gusty west wind will develop and cause the temperatures to drop a little by mid to late afternoon.
On Wednesday another low pressure system will take aim at Northcentral Wisconsin. Snow is likely from late morning through late afternoon. Accumulations will likely range from 1 to 3 inches with a few spots in the Northwoods possibly getting as much as 4 inches. Along with the snow, high temps will be in the 20s.
The wind will pick up out of the northwest late Wednesday and this will clear out the clouds and drop the temps for Thursday. Even with a good amount of sun, high temps on Thursday will only reach the lower teens.
A third storm system of the week will move into Northcentral Wisconsin Friday afternoon and continue to affect the area into Saturday morning. During this time a few inches of snow looks likely. It will be enough to impact travel for the early part of the weekend. The wind will pick up later Saturday and bring some arctic air to the region which will last through early next week. High temps will be in the 20s on Friday and Saturday and then only be around 10 degree for Sunday and Monday. Low temps early next week will be a few degrees below zero.
