First Alert Weather: Mainly dry weather this weekend
Tranquil weather for the last weekend of January.
WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) - The weekend gets underway with more clouds than breaks of sunshine on Saturday. Highs in the upper 10s. A mix of sun and clouds on Sunday with afternoon temps rebounding into the low 20s.
The next chance for snow showers will be on Monday afternoon into Monday. A warm front will lift northeast on Monday with snow shoewrs developing during the afternoon. The snow showers will linger in the northern half of the area Monday. Accumulations of an inch is possible in the north. A cold front will follow on Tuesday with a chance of snow showers in the morning, followed by falling temperatures in the afternoon. Highs on Monday reach the mid 20s, while Tuesday will feature morning highs in the low 20s, falling back into the 10s for the afternoon.
Groundhog Day is on Wednesday and it will be mostly cloudy. If this is the case during the morning, Jimmy in Sun Praire may not see his shadow, which would mean an early spring. Winter will be sticking around for the rest of the week and beyond into the first two weeks of February. Back to the forecast and there has been a shift to the north of the track of low pressure for Wednesday into Wednesday night. This means there is a chance of snow Wednesday afternoon into Wednesday night. How much snowfall is still to be determined. The keys are how much the track of the low will change between now and next week, plus how much moisture moves up into our part of the state. We will continue to monitor this winter storm, so check back for updates.
Colder for the end of the week. Considerable cloudiness on Thursday with highs in the single digits. Bitter cold on Friday with low around -20° and struggling to make it above zero in the afternoon.
