Chilly weather to continue for a while

Tonight: Mostly cloudy north of Wausau with snow showers or flurries at times far-north (mainly north of Highway 8); some clearing south.  Chilly.  Frost or freeze possible.

Low: 28

Wind: W/NW diminishing to West 5-10

Friday: Partly sunny, with more clouds far-north.

High: 40

Wind: NW/W 5-10

Windy and chilly weather conditions lingered through the afternoon, with scattered snow and rain showers continuing through parts of northern and central Wisconsin. Temperature readings ranged through the 30s to low 40s, but the persistent gusty west to northwest winds generated wind chills in the mid to upper 20s.

A much cooler weather pattern will continue through the middle of next week, followed by some moderation. There will be chances of precipitation at times, but amounts should be light.

Flood Warnings continue along portions of the Wisconsin River (south of Wausau), Yellow River (affecting portions of Wood County), and the Black River (affecting parts of Jackson County).

The National Weather Service has issued a Freeze Warning in effect from 1-9 a.m. Friday for parts of east-central Wisconsin, including Waushara County. Most of the rest of northern and central Wisconsin has already experienced a frost or freeze.

Snow showers or flurries will linger tonight across the northern part of the state, with some decrease in clouds elsewhere. Peeks of sunshine are expected Friday, with much less wind.

The weekend forecast includes some sunshine Saturday morning and most of Sunday. Clouds will also increase Saturday with a chance of showers developing during the afternoon and continuing into the night, especially north into central. Snow could mix-in across the north.

Snow or rain showers will be possible Sunday night into early Monday. More rain showers, possibly mixed with snow early are in the forecast Tuesday.

Have a good night and a fantastic Friday! Meteorologist Mike Breunling 3:30 p.m. October 11, 2018
