MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Arctic air has smacked Wisconsin after two days of snow that brought 6 to 10 inches to parts of the state, but relief is in sight.

Subzero temperatures and brisk winds combined to create dangerous cold across much of Wisconsin on Sunday. Wind chills plunged to 35 below zero at one point in Marshfield, while wind chills in the minus-20s were common across northwestern and north-central Wisconsin by mid-afternoon. Afternoon temperatures across Wisconsin were mostly in the single digits above and below.

The Weather Service warns to expect wind chills from to below to 35 below zero into Monday morning, with some of the worst coming Sunday night.

But warmer weather starts to return Monday. And by Tuesday temperatures will rebound into the upper 20s and even the lower 30s.
