Tumbling temperatures into Saturday morning & staying cold through the weekend.
WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) -Mainly cloudy on Saturday with snow possible south of Highway 10 during the day and into Saturday night. Accumulations will vary from a coating to 1″ from Marshfield to Stevens Point and north of Wisconsin Rapids, 1-3″ Wisconsin Rapids and Wautoma, while 3-5″ possible farther south into Necedah, Adams, and Wisconsin Dells. The highest amounts will be in southern Wisconsin, where 5-8″ of snow will fall. Hazardous travel is likely in the southern part of the state Saturday into Saturday night due to the snow. Locations to the north of Highway 10 will have considerable cloudiness on Saturday with highs in the low to mid 10s.
We do want to provide a First Alert about the risk of dangerously cold conditions for the early part of the new week. Temperatures Monday may not make it above zero for a high, and Tuesday may have the coldest morning conditions with readings in the -10s. Wind chills are a concern as well, running -10° to -20° Monday, and could be as low as -30° on Tuesday morning. We are monitoring this trend to see if a First Alert Weather Day will be needed. No less, the bitter cold will be sticking around for the next several days with many mornings starting below zero, and highs in the single digits or teens.
