BENNETT, Wis. (AP) -- A winter storm that dumped 17 inches of snow in parts of northwestern Wisconsin is being followed by a cold snap that could cause temperatures in the area to plunge as low as 25 degrees below zero.

The National Weather Service says temperatures across north-central Wisconsin are expected to fall into the single digits above and below zero on Thursday night. Over the next few days the region could see temperatures in the minus 20s.

Tom Stangeland of the weather service's La Crosse bureau says the cold snap is expected to linger at least through late next week.

Residents in northwestern are digging out from more than a foot of snow. Parts of Douglas County got 17 inches, while Bayfield and Maple counties got 15 to 16 inches.
