**A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until 6 PM.** Only minor snow accumulation is expected but freezing rain and sleet could cause hazardous road conditions.
A mix of sleet, snow and freezing rain are possible causing slippery roads and prompting the National Weather Service to issue the Winter Weather Advisory. Snowfall will be minimal with most of the area seeing about an inch with some areas to the east closer to 2-3".
Temperatures by this afternoon will once again rise above freezing, continuing our trend of well above average highs. Average temperatures for late January are still in the mid 20s for highs and single digits for lows, so enjoy the continued mild conditions. Some light rain or wintry mix may linger into the afternoon with cloudy skies. But, some sunshine will be back by Tuesday.
Tonight the clouds begin to break, but temperatures remain very mild, in the middle 20s. Sunshine returns for Tuesday and it will be a really nice day for a walk outside with temperatures in the middle 30s.
The middle of the week looks fairly quiet, although we'll be watching the next system move in sometime around Wednesday night or Thursday which could bring some additional light snow to the area. Following the next round of light snow, we should see the return of some arctic air. Get the scarves and gloves back out for the weekend as highs may run about 10° below average with seasonable lows returning (which means lows in the single digits)! There is also a chance for additional snow just in time for the end of January so we'll be watching closely and will provide additional updates as they become available.
- The snow has come to an end but blowing and drifting snow will be the big concern for this evening. That should continue to make for treacherous road conditions in Western Wisconsin.
- Frigid temperatures and blustery winds will combine to create dangerous wind chills this morning. The entire viewing area is under a WIND CHILL WARNING for tonight through Wednesday morning.
