An area of clouds prevented temperatures from completely plummeting and saved a lot of the area from a thick frost this morning, but that won’t be the case tonight. Mostly cloudy skies will stick around to begin the day, but more peeks of sun should develop this afternoon before we clear out this evening. Winds won’t be as breezy today, but with highs only in the upper 30s to low 40s, wind chills are expected to be at or below freezing all day once again. Temperatures will fall into the low 20s in the Northwoods to upper 20s south of Wausau tonight with frost likely.
Clouds will be on the increase on Saturday ahead of a weak cold front that looks to move into the area by the evening and overnight hours, bringing an isolated chance of light rain/snow showers. A few of those may linger into Sunday, but most of the area should be dry. Temperatures will rise into the mid to upper 40s with breezy conditions Saturday, and then cool back down into the low 40s behind the front on Sunday.
Chilly weather will continue into the start of the work week with highs in the low 40s on Monday under partly cloudy skies. Another system will pass by to our north on Tuesday, bringing an increase in clouds and isolated chance for light rain/snow showers in the far North. This will hold temperatures in the mid 40s. Temperatures will begin to warm by the second half of next week as high pressure takes control and bring sunny to partly cloudy skies into the area. Highs will be in the upper 40s to low 50s Wednesday and upper 50s to low 60s on Thursday.
