A WINTER STORM WARNING continues through 7pm today for Iron, Ashland, Price, Vilas, Forest, Florence, Oneida, Lincoln, Langlade, Taylor, Clark, Marathon, Menominee, Shawano, and Waupaca counties. A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY remains in effect through 7pm for Jackson, Juneau, Adams, Wood, Portage, and Waushara counties. Snow will continue today with another 2 to 4 inches of accumulation possible in the warning area and an inch or two in the advisory area. Along with the light snow there will be gusty winds out of the northeast at 15 to 30 mph causing a bit of blowing and drifting. It will feel a lot like winter with temperatures remaining steady in the mid to upper 20s.
After today it looks like tranquil weather will move into Northcentral Wisconsin and remain here through early next week. Unfortunately, temperatures will be well below normal so the snow will not be melting too fast. The good news is that the sun will be out on most days late this week and through the weekend. Friday and Saturday will have a few more clouds - I'll call it partly sunny, but the other days in the outlook should have more sun than clouds. High temps will remain in the upper 20s on Thursday and Friday and then linger around 30 for Saturday and Sunday. Temps should slowly warm up next week with high reaching the low 30s on Monday and the mid 30s on Tuesday. Low temps will be in the single digits for the next few nights. If you are hoping for 50s and 60s, you are going to have to wait until April.
Have a fine Wednesday! Meteorologist Justin Loew. 4:30am, 23-March-2011
