Cold Today; Snow Friday and Saturday; More Cold to Sunday & Monday

From the National Weather Service. Arctic high pressure in the region will bring bitterly cold conditions to southern Wisconsin again today. Highs are not expected to get out of the single digits.

A Wind Chill Advisory remains in effect for the entire forecast area through 10 am this morning. Though the wind chills will moderate some through the day, breezy winds will result in wind chills remaining below zero through the day.

Low pressure passing through the Midwest (to the south of Wisconsin) will bring accumulating snowfall to Wisconsin Friday and Saturday.

There is increasing confidence that several inches of snow will fall with this storm system. Below is a map of the current forecast snow totals, ranging from 4 to 6 inches southwest to 9 to 11 inches northeast.

There will be up to one inch of snow late tonight night into Friday morning. After a brief lull, snow will return from the west late morning into the afternoon. The bulk of the snowfall accumulations will be from late Friday afternoon through late Friday night, though accumulating snow will linger through much of Saturday. The Friday afternoon/evening commute will likely be impacted by the beginning of this storm.

As always, keep up with the latest forecast to catch headline changes/upgrades and any changes to snowfall totals at National Weather Service-Milwaukee/Sullivan

Another arctic high pressure system will pass over on Sunday. It will bring even colder conditions to southern Wisconsin Saturday night through Monday morning. Wind chill values on Sunday morning will bottom out around -25 to -35 degrees. Wind chills will be around -20 to -25 at daybreak Monday.
