WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) -Precipitation winds down by mid-morning on Wednesday with an additional chance of showers in Central Wisconsin during the afternoon Wednesday. Additional chances of snow or snow showers late week and into the start of the weekend.

Clouds will once again build across North Central Wisconsin Tuesday night as the next weather maker drives east into the region early for Wednesday morning. Snow is likely from Highway 29 on north into the mid-morning Wednesday, with a mix of rain/snow showers to the south. Accumulations of a slushy inch in Wausau, a coating to 1″ in Marshfield and Stevens Point, while in the Northwoods, 1-2″ of wet snow is anticipated by a little after daybreak on Wednesday. Clouds will be more common than peeks of sun Wednesday afternoon, with a chance of rain showers south. Highs in the low to mid 40s.

Another shot at rain/snow showers in the southern parts of the area later Wednesday night into Thursday morning with a quick moving disturbance. That precipitation should be done by late morning Thursday, then clouds with some breaks of sun. Highs in the upper 30s to low 40s.

Partly cloudy Friday with highs in the mid 40s. We are watching for the next winter-type storm that may track either too far southeast to have any impact on the region, or if the European model is correct, close enough to bring periods of snow late Friday night into Saturday in at least Central Wisconsin. The jury is still out on the storm track, but keep in mind the possibility for messy travel conditions on Saturday from Wausau south and east. Highs on Saturday in the upper 30s.

Clouds with breaks of sun on Sunday. Highs in the low 40s. Staying on the chilly side heading down the home stretch for the month of March for next Monday and Tuesday with considerable cloudiness and a chance of snow showers. Highs in the mid 30s Monday, low 30s Tuesday.
