There is some snow on the way for today but it will not be too significant. The main storm to watch out for will be hitting Northcentral Wisconsin later Friday into Saturday morning.
Temperatures will be above normal once again for today with cloudy skies and a chance of scattered light snow. The light snow will develop later in the morning and continue through the afternoon. It looks a bit lighter than what we had been forecasting yesterday. Most areas will have an inch or less. There might be up to 2 inches in the far north. Because of the potential for a little more snow in the north, A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY has been issued for Price, Iron, and Ashland counties through 6 p.m. this evening. Because there might be some freezing drizzle mixed in with the light snow in the south, A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY has been issued for Juneau and Adams counties through noon. High temps will be in the mid to upper 20s.
The wind will be fairly light and out of the east-northeast during the day, then it will shift to the northwest and become a little gusty tonight. This shift in the wind direction will bring in much colder air. By Thursday morning, low temps will be near zero. High temps on Thursday will struggle to reach 10 degrees. Even though it will be cold, the nice thing about tomorrow is that skies should be mostly sunny.
On Friday the clouds will increase as a stronger storm system moves in from the west. Snow will develop toward evening on Friday and continue through Saturday morning. During this time, it looks like 4 to 8 inches of snow could fall. After the snow ends in the afternoon on Saturday, the wind will pick up out of the north once again and we will experience a short blast of arctic air. After high temps in the 20s on Friday and Saturday, the mercury will once again struggle to reach 10 degrees on Sunday.
Cold weather will continue early next week with low temps a few degrees below zero and high temps in the low teens on Monday and reaching the mid teens on Tuesday. The good news is that we should have a good amount of sunshine from Sunday afternoon through Tuesday.
Have a super Wednesday! Meteorologist Justin Loew, 4:30 a.m. 15-January-2020
On this date in weather history: 1932 - Up to two inches of snow whitened the Los Angeles basin of California. The Los Angeles Civic Center reported an inch of snow, and even the beaches of Santa Monica were whitened with snow, in what proved to be a record snowstorm for Los Angeles.
