UNDATED (WSAU) Wisconsinites are shivering through their coldest morning of the winter. It got down to 13-below in Superior, Hayward, and Siren. And unlike yesterday, cold winds are blowing.
Rhinelander and Marshfield had the state’s lowest wind-chill factors at minus-33 as of 6am Thursday morning. Wind-chills were generally in the minus-teens-and-20’s in northern and central Wisconsin, and in the single digits and teens below in the south.
Kenosha was the state’s warm spot with 17 degrees at six o’clock. The National Weather Service has issued a wind-chill advisory until noon for western and central parts of the Badger State. A lake effect snow advisory continues in Iron County until noon. And a winter storm watch has been posted for Friday, as up to a half-foot of snow is expected in southern Wisconsin with only a chance of light snow in the north. The cold temperatures are expected to continue at least through Saturday. It might get down to 20-below tonight in parts of the north.
Warmer weather is expected in Central Wisconsin this weekend.
