Wis. (WSAW) - Some clouds tonight and not as chilly with lows in the mid to upper 20s. Sunday is mainly cloudy and a little milder with highs in the mid 30s.

Spotty freezing drizzle is possible Sunday night into early Monday. Snow overspreads the Northwoods during the early morning hours to on Monday, filling in across the rest of the region between 7 am and 9 am. Periods of snow, moderate to perhaps heavy at times, will persist through the afternoon into the evening. The snow will wind down by late Monday evening. Snowfall accumulations of 4 to 7 inches are possible north of Highway 8, with 3 to 5 inches south of Highway 8 to Highway 10, while 1 to 3 inches farther south in the region. Roads are going to be snow covered in the north for morning drive Monday, while the afternoon drive home will be a tricky one across the entire region due to the snow on the ground and brisk winds that could cause blowing snow, along with reduced visibility. Those northerly winds will also usher in the frigid air from Canada that will drop temperatures starting Tuesday. Clouds along with some sun Tuesday, however temperatures during the day will be stuck in the single digits. Wind chill values will range from 0 to -10°. Frigid Tuesday night into Wednesday with a partly cloudy to clear sky. Lows Wednesday morning in the -10s, wind chill values as low as -35°. Even though there will be plenty of sun on Wednesday, highs will be challenged to make it past 0°, while wind chill values run in the -10° to -20° in the afternoon. After another sub-zero morning on Thursday, temps will rebound back into the low 20s. The side effect is there is a risk of light snow on Thursday during the afternoon. Partly sunny and less cold on Friday with highs in the upper 20s. A chance of snow showers next Saturday, high in the mid to upper 20s.
