High: 33 Wind: West around 5

Tonight: Cloudy with light snow likely. One half up to two inches possible in spots.
Low: 22 Wind: Light West

High: 29 Wind: West-Northwest around 5 mph in the morning, gusting over 20 mph toward evening

If you haven’t dug out all of your Winter clothing yet, you will probably want to do that soon because the next few days will be much colder than normal. Some light snow will fall at times as well.

The cold dry wind moved in yesterday but it did not scour out the clouds. The low level clouds are hanging around early today and it is looking less likely that we will see much sunshine. Therefore, temps will remain on the cold side, only reaching the low 30s for today. Thankfully the wind will be much lighter, out of the west at around 5 mph.

A strong upper level trough will move over the state tonight and Friday and this will reinforce the cold air. High temps on Friday will only top out in the upper 20s. In addition, there will be some light snow. We will likely see a fairly steady light snow tonight with a half inch up to an inch possible. During the day on Friday there will be more of an off-and-on snow shower activity which could accumulate a dusting up to and inch in spots. As cold air and a strong northwest wind develop later in the day on Friday and into the evening hours, there could be some heavier lake effect snow in the far north. Due to the lake effect snow, A WINTER STORM WARNING has already been issued for Friday and Friday night for Ashland and Iron counties. Several inches could accumulate in those areas. Vilas and Forest counties could eventually have some advisories issued as well.

The weather should turn partly cloudy for Saturday, then another batch of snow could move through on Sunday and Monday. The weather systems late in the weekend and early next week will be weaker, so it is looking like there will not be too much accumulation on Sunday and Monday.

Temps will stay on the cold side through early next week. Highs will only reach the upper 20s on Saturday, the low 30s on Sunday, and upper 20s on Monday. Tuesday could be the coldest day with a mix of sun and clouds and highs in the mid to upper 20s.

Have a splendid Thursday! Meteorologist Justin Loew 4:30 a.m. 8-November 2018
