Peeks of sunshine developed during the afternoon across parts of central Wisconsin, with cloud cover lingering elsewhere. It was cold again, as highs ranged from the mid 20s to low 30s. The west to southwest winds remained light.

The cold weather pattern will continue through the middle of next week, then trend a bit warmer. Some snowfall will be possible during the period, but amounts will be light except across the northern part of the state in the Lake Superior snow belt.

A light snowfall will develop tonight and linger into the morning Friday, with much of the area receiving around an inch of accumulation. Additional light snowfall is expected Friday afternoon and evening, with up to an inch of accumulation possible. Breezy northwest winds developing Friday afternoon will lead to lake-effect snow showers across the far-north, with this activity continuing into Saturday morning.

The National Weather Service has issued Winter Storm Warning for Ashland, Iron, and Vilas  Counties from 6 a.m. Friday morning until 6 a.m. Saturday morning, and a Winter Weather Advisory for Oneida and Forest Counties from 6 a.m. Friday until midnight Friday night.  Total snow accumulations of 6-12″ will be possible across much of Ashland, Iron, and Vilas Counties, with 4-6″ possible across the northern portions of Oneida and Forest Counties.  The northwest winds will cause blowing and drifting.

The weekend forecast includes some sunshine Saturday, then a chance of snow showers or light snow Saturday night and Sunday, with only minor accumulations expected.

Breezy conditions are likely Monday and Tuesday, along with snow showers in the snow belt and a few flurries elsewhere.

Have a good night and a fantastic Friday! Meteorologist Mike Breunling  9 p.m. November 8, 2018
