A couple inches of snow expected

More light snow is on the way for today. This time around the heaviest accumulations will be in the southern and western parts of the area. A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in effect until 6am Tuesday for Clark, Jackson, Monroe, Juneau, and Adams counties. 3 to 5 inches of snow is possible in the ADVISORY area. For the rest of us, accumulations will range from just a dusting north of highway 8 to an inch or two in Marathon county, to 2 to 3 inches around Marshfield, Wisconsin Rapids, and Stevens Point. With a northeast wind around 5-10 mph and cloudy skies, high temps will only be rising into the middle and upper teens. The light snow will continue tonight and slowly taper off to flurries during the day on Tuesday. The heavier snow will be shifting into far southern Wisconsin where there could be blizzard-like conditions Tuesday night. For our area, the wind will be picking up a little out of the north on Tuesday (about 10 to 15 mph with gusts to 20), and therefore temperatures will remain in the teens. The clouds will decrease on Wednesday morning so we should have plenty of sunshine for the middle of the week, however, temps will remain below normal - in the teens once again.

On Thursday the wind will pick up out of the west and this will start to bring in some milder air. High temps will only be in the mid to upper teens on Thursday but then rise into the mid 20s on Friday. The mercury could top out around 30 on Saturday before falling back into the mid 20s on Sunday. Another spell of arctic cold could hit Northcentral Wisconsin next week so you will want to enjoy the milder weather late this week.

As far as snow chances late this week, it doesn't look too promising for anything heavy. A couple weak storm systems will hit the area, one on Friday and one on Saturday night. Right now it looks like the system moving through on Friday could produce a dusting of snow, with the system on Saturday night potentially bringing an inch or two.
