WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) - Mostly cloudy and breezy on Saturday, still rather chilly with highs in the mid 10s. A clipper system will be dropping by the Badger State later Saturday night with a chance of snow showers in our southwestern-most counties. South and west of Marshfield, up to 1″ of snowfall is possible. For the rest of the region, partly cloudy and cold as temps slip below zero.

It will be mostly cloudy and cold at Lambeau Field for the Packers Divisional Playoff Game Saturday night. Temps at kickoff will be in the mid 10s, dropping back to around 10° by the end of the game. Frozen tundra indeed.

Lots of clouds and cold at Lambeau Field tomorrow night.

A colder day to end the weekend on Sunday with a fair amount of sunshine. Afternoon readings may not make it past the upper single digits to low 10s. Another round of snow on tap for Sunday night into Monday morning the next in the series of clipper systems to drive through the Badger State. This storm system will have more moisture to work with and has the potential to leave a few inches of snowfall in its wake through Monday midday. We are watching this for a possible First Alert Weather Day, which will depend on whether snowfall amounts are at or above 4″ and the impacts it would have on the morning drive for Monday. Either way, once the flakes wind down, mostly cloudy on Monday and breezy. Highs in the low 10s.

Tuesday is cold with a good amount of sunshine. Morning temps start in the -10s, rising to around zero. Frigid Tuesday night into Wednesday morning with lows falling to near -20°. A good amount of sun on Wednesday with highs in the mid-single digits. We are also keeping tabs on how much wind there may or may not be for Tuesday and Wednesday to see if dangerously low wind chills develop or if it is just going to be downright cold with little in the way of wind.

Snow showers are possible Thursday and next Friday with highs in the mid 10s Thursday, upper 10s on Friday.

Staying colder than average in the next few days.
