First Alert Weather: Snow returns Wednesday followed by an Arctic Chill

Wis. (WSAW) - Get ready for windy conditions and much colder conditions later this week, as an Arctic cold front approaches the #Badger State throughout the day Wednesday.

Snow will develop throughout Wednesday afternoon and evening, with most locations picking up some light snowfall by Wednesday evening. The latest model updates for Tuesday night continue to show most areas receiving less than an inch of snow during this time, with a few locales farther north, picking up just over an inch.

Hold on to your hats behind this system, as the wind will continue to howl as the wind direction turns to the north-northwest by early Thursday morning. These will be the "winds of change", as temperatures will drop into the single digits above zero by Thursday morning, with even colder conditions by late Thursday night and into Friday morning. Temps will start out -10° to -20° for Friday morning, with a warming trend kicking in Friday night.

Snow still looks to return to Wisconsin Saturday, followed by another quiet day on Sunday as temps warm into the upper 20s and lower 30s throughout the weekend.

Monday's system could present more of a wintry mess, as temperatures will be climbing into the lower to middle 30s, which will bring areas of freezing drizzle and freezing rain at times, by Monday afternoon.
