The latest Northeast Wisconsin Weather Forecast from Storm Team 5…
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch from Wednesday night until Friday morning. A wintry mix and snow will make travel difficult during this time.
Clear and quiet weather will take us through the overnight as lows cool into the single digits to low teens. Winds will be light through the night.
Wednesday will still bring nice weather to the region. We start the day with some sunshine, but clouds begin to build back in later in the day ahead of our next storm system. Highs will stay on the mild side with temperatures in the lower 30s for most locations and a light south breeze.
A messy weather system begins to impact the area Wednesday night, but even more so Thursday. During the morning hours this system will bring a mix of drizzle and sleet for most of the viewing area. Snow will be falling just to our west. We’ll see the wintry mix transition over to snow for the entire area by the afternoon. Snow, moderate to heavy at times, will be widespread during the afternoon and into Thursday night.
Travel will be slow going Thursday afternoon and night. The snow will come to an end early Friday morning with gusty winds and dropping temperatures. Snowfall totals will be in the 3″-6″ range from Green Bay and to the south. North of Green Bay snow totals of 6″-9″ will be possible where most of the precipitation will stay in the form of snow. Stay tuned for updates to this forecast!
Behind this system the coldest air of the season will move into the state. Highs for the weekend will only be in the single digits. Wind chills Sunday morning could be in the -20° to -30° range. Highs early next week remain in the single digits under a mostly to partly sunny sky.
