The National Weather Service says a series of Alberta Clippers are moving in-and-out of the Badger State – and a big one will settle in, starting on Martin Luther King Day. Low temperatures on Monday night are predicted to be 10-to-17 below zero statewide – expect along Lake Superior, where it will be as warm as minus-six.
But first, we’re due to get one more warm spell. Forecasters say it will be in the 30’s to near 40 tomorrow and Saturday before the big Arctic push begins. Colder readings in the teens are in today’s forecast.
Northern Wisconsin had wind-chills colder than 10-below at six this morning. And it could have been worse. The Weather Service canceled a wind-chill advisory for Duluth-Superior overnight, after clouds moved in unexpectedly. Much of northwest Wisconsin got at least a little snow yesterday. Rural Rusk County had the most, with one-point-two inches near Bruce.
