Look for clouds to thicken as our next weathermaker approaches. That system will bring rain across eastern Wisconsin late this afternoon through most of tonight. Areas NORTHWEST of Shawano will see wet, accumulating snow. A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY has been issued for north-central Wisconsin. A slushy 2-4″ of snow will fall through tonight.

Most of the snow will fall and compact on grassy surfaces. However, given the recent cold spell, untreated roads will probably become slippery into Wednesday morning. Plan ahead if you’ll be traveling across northern Wisconsin or into the U.P. Highs this afternoon will stay in the mid 40s, and Wednesday afternoon is likely only a few degrees warmer.

Another storm system will approach the area later this week. Temperatures will briefly spike ahead of that weathermaker. Lows Wednesday night should be in the upper 30s, and highs Thursday will be near 60! Occasional showers will arrive over the course of Thursday morning, and a few non-severe thunderstorms will be possible. Temperatures will stay mild Thursday night with rain continuing. Lows should stay in the 50s. However, Friday’s high temperature will likely occur around midnight, or early in the morning. As a cold front passes on Friday, breezy northwest winds will lead to temperatures falling into the 40s by the afternoon. Look for those 40s to continue this weekend. There could also be another round of rain and mixed precipitation on Sunday.
