GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - It's supposed to get a little warmer in Wisconsin Wednesday, before a major cold snap moves in Thursday.
The National Weather Service says a low pressure system will bring in southerly breezes Wednesday and Wednesday night. Highs are expected to be above freezing in all of the Badger State, up to the high 40's in the south.
Once the system leaves, Wisconsin will have at least a few days of much colder weather starting Thursday -- when highs will generally be in the teens and 20's. By Saturday morning, overnight lows could drop to beyond 10-below in some places.
On Sunday, highs will get a tad warmer in the teens and 20's.
Meanwhile, a second wave of snow hit northern Wisconsin late Tuesday. Ashland had 9 inches at last word, and Cornucopia 6.5. In the first wave of snow, Gordon in Douglas County got 10.5 inches before freezing rain began at mid-morning Tuesday.
Central and northeast Wisconsin picked up 3 inches to around a half-foot. Wittenberg got the most, with 6.5 inches.
Southwest Wisconsin got two inches or less. In La Crosse, the snow was covered with freezing rain overnight.
Black ice was also reported in the north, and drivers were urged to be extremely careful.
