WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) - Another mild day in-store with melting temperatures. Enjoy highs in the 40s while they last, because multiple rounds of snow showers are ahead in the forecast over the next several days.

Despite highs in the 40s today, a cold front north will dip into the region Thursday and bring in breezy winds and chances for some flurries. A northwestern wind today will likely allow for some lake-effect flurries to form. However, mild temperatures today may allow flurries to melt and fall as a drizzle. Later tonight, a front system will bring in snow chances overnight. Some accumulating snow near a half-inch is possible for the greater Wausau area.

Temperatures drop into the lower 30s heading through the weekend. Most of Saturday will be dry. But late Saturday night, a frontal system will bring snow chances to the area. Widespread snow showers will continue into Sunday. There is a moderate chance for accumulating snow, but there’s still some uncertainty on the path of the system which will affect snowfall amounts and precipitation types. Keep an eye on the forecast this weekend for any changes and weather alerts.
