Clouds will increase tonight as our next storm system approaches. Dry weather Wednesday evening will give way to a wintry mix of freezing rain, rain, and snow by early Thursday. Lows tonight will be in the 20s. Roads could be slippery for the Thursday morning commute.

Thursday will begin with a round of mixed precipitation which could make roads icy. That mixed precipitation will eventually transition over to wet snow by the late morning and continue through the afternoon and evening.

Moderate to heavy snow will move through during the mid to late afternoon which will create slow conditions for the evening commute. Winds will increase late in the day out of the west to northwest which may lead to blowing and drifting snow. Total accumulations of 3-6″ is forecast for most of the area with higher totals possible north of Shawano and Marinette.

The snow will come to an end throughout the morning on Friday. Gusty winds will bring in much colder air and will also lead to some blowing and drifting of the recently fallen snow. The coldest air of the season then settles in for the weekend with highs potentially stuck below zero on Sunday.

High temperatures in the single digits will continue through the first half of next week with generally quiet conditions. Wind chills during the morning hours could fall into the -10 to -25 degree range.
