First Alert Weather: Winter chill continues, more chances for snow
Snow showers are in the forecast for the second half of the weekend.
WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) - Mostly sunny and continued chilly on Saturday with afternoon readings in the mid to upper 10s. Clouds return on Sunday as a cold front slides southeast toward the region during the afternoon. Snow showers are likely with accumulations around 1″ possible. This will make for slippery and snow-covered roads Sunday afternoon into the evening hours. Highs on Sunday in the low 20s.
MLK Day on Monday features a mix of clouds and some sun. Highs close to 20. The next weather maker that we are keeping close tabs on will be a clipper system dropping into the area on Tuesday. Snow is forecast to develop by Tuesday afternoon and last into Tuesday night, winding down before daybreak on Wednesday. The potential exists for a few inches of accumulation in North Central Wisconsin, with the better bet of higher amounts in the Northwoods. Since this snow producer is still about 4 days away, changes are likely to the forecast track and snowfall amounts. So be sure to check back for updates. We are monitoring this for a possible First Alert Weather Day.
In the wake of the snow on Tuesday night, colder air returns on Wednesday with temperatures struggling to make it to 10 degrees during the day. Brisk winds are also anticipated, which will put wind chill values well below zero. The cold conditions stick around into Thursday, followed by some moderation in temperatures by next Friday.
