MADISON (WKOW) - Temperatures have taken a nose dive ahead of a weather system impacting us in the coming days.
High pressure has moved in from the Arctic bringing cold conditions across the region.
That will move out through Saturday and a low develops causing snow to develop later this weekend.
Mostly sunny and cold with highs in the teens and wind chills in the single digits with a light wind from the northwest around 5-10 mph.
It'll likely be the coldest night of the season so far with temps around or slightly below zero and wind chills staying sub-zero too. Our coldest temp this winter has only been 3° on Christmas Eve.
Increasing clouds and chilly with a high around 20° and wind chills in the teens.
Snow will develop around 6 pm to midnight from west to east. Widespread light to moderate snow expected overnight.
Snow wraps up around late-morning with mostly cloudy skies. Expect around 2-4" totals with slightly lower totals possible near the stateline and southeastern Wisconsin. Temperatures recover to the upper 20s.
Another chance for snow, but there is much more uncertainty with the next round. The main low may be too far south to impact us. Therefore, the highest chance for snow at this point is for our southernmost communities.
Either way, expect mostly cloudy skies and temps in the mid 20s.
Mostly cloudy with temps in the mid 20s.
Mostly cloudy with a few flurries possible and temps in the mid 20s.
Some sunshine finally returns with temps in the mid to upper 20s.
