First Alert Weather: Winter chill continues through the weekend
Winds will diminish Saturday night with a cold start on Sunday. Bright end to the weekend, but still breezy.
WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) - The last weekend of winter on the calendar feels a lot more like mid-February in North Central Wisconsin. Highs on Saturday topped out in the low to mid 20s. Lake effect snow far north and snow showers during the day on Saturday have exited, yielding to some clearing. A cold start on Sunday but milder with sunshine during the afternoon. The next weather maker could bring accumulating snow to parts of the area Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.
Partly cloudy to clear and cold tonight. Lows by morning on Sunday in the low to mid-single digits north, while mid-single digits to around 10° in Central Wisconsin. A good deal of sunshine on Sunday breezy, and milder. Highs rebound into the mid 30s.
Clouds will be on the increase to start the work week on Monday, and also start the spring season. The equinox occurs at 4:24 PM on Monday afternoon. Highs on Monday in the upper 30s.
The next risk of precipitation will move into the region on Tuesday afternoon. Rain showers, mixed with snow in the Northwoods will change to all snow from Highway 29 on north for Tuesday night, while rain showers are a better bet to the south. Snowfall by Wednesday morning of 2-4″ is possible from Wausau on north, while less than 1″ between Highway 29 & Highway 10 to the south, Morning rain/snow showers will wind down on Wednesday, otherwise mostly cloudy. Highs in the low to mid 40s.
Another storm system will be moving across the Midwest on Thursday but indications are that the low may pass too far to the south to have significant impacts locally. No less, we are going to include a chance of snow on Thursday in the southern parts of the area. Highs in the mid to upper 30s. Quiet conditions are on tap for later in the week with a fair amount of sunshine on Friday and next Saturday, March 25. Highs in the low 40s.
