*A Winter Weather Advisoryis in effect until 6 a.m. Monday for Taylor, Marathon, Menominee, Shawano, Waupaca, Portage, Wood, Clark, Monroe, Jackson, Juneau, Adams, and Waushara Counties. Total snow accumulations generally should run into the 1 to 2" range through late Sunday night (with slightly higher totals possible in the far south-southeast portion of the area). Please drive with extra caution and be prepared for snow coveredroads and reduced visibility.
Sunday night: Light snow tapering to flurries late. Low: 5 Wind: East becoming W 5-10
Monday: Flurries possible early. Blustery and cold with some blowing and drifting snow in open areas. High: 8 Wind: West 12-25
It sure has been very wintry period across the region. Temperatures 20 degrees below normal plus a steady snow has greetedthe region. The snow is courtesy of low pressure system down towardMissouri and southern Iowa Sunday. The accumulating snow will taperto flurries late Sunday night. Monday will be cold and ratherblustery as the system departs. West winds gusting to 25 mph willcreate some blowing and drifting of the snow. Temperatures willstart in the 5 to 10 degree range and probably hold steady or evenfall during the afternoon as a reinforcing shot of arctic air movesin.
Another cold front will slice through Wisconsin Tuesday morningand may generate a few snow showers. It will also have a healthydose of gusty winds and bitter cold air moving in behind it. ByWednesday morning temperatures could be in the -10s with wind chillsin the -20s at least. Sunshine will be the rule Wednesday as highpressure builds in but it will be extremely cold with highs possiblynot even reaching 0 in the afternoon. Low temperatures Wednesdaynight into Thursday morning could reach -20 in parts of the TV-9viewing area.
We do expect a pattern change late in the week allowing for milderair to sweep in from the southwest. This should push the highs backup into the 10s Thursday and 20s Friday through Sunday. Overall wedon't foresee any major storms but a weak system or two could bring afew light snow showers Friday and Saturday.
Have a good night! Meteorologist Tony Schumacher, 8:50 p.m.,8-December 2013
