A WIND CHILL ADVISORY has been reissued for Thursday evening through Friday morning for almost all of the Badger State. Wind chill factors could dip as low as -30 degrees through early Friday morning.
After a bitterly cold night, temperatures will moderate on Friday as a weather system moves into the Badger State with highs around 20. Around 1-2" of accumulation can be expected during the day on Friday.
However, strong winds circulating around the low will generate blowing and drifting snow especially in the outlying areas.
Winter Weather Advisories have been posted Friday for Sheboygan, Fond du Lac, and Green Lake counties for considerable blowing and drifting snow. The strong winds will continue to keep wind chills well below zero throughout the day on Friday.
Strong winds will continue off and on Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. This will keep the chances for blowing and drifting snow throughout the outlying areas but also keep our wind chills in the bitterly cold range.
A second weather system will move through on Sunday afternoon and evening which could produce another inch of snow throughout the area.
That will be followed by strong northwesterly winds which will usher in another round of bitterly cold temperatures throughout the Great Lakes.
The combination of the winds and bitterly cold temperatures will lead to dangerously cold wind chills throughout the Badger state for the beginning of the week. This could equal the type of weather we experienced a few weeks back.
This exceptionally cold weather could continue throughout most of the week with minor improvements by the end of the next work week.
