WISCONSIN WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MILWAUKEE/SULLIVAN WI
259 PM CST Wed Dec 7 2016
Cold weather will persist into the weekend as high pressure slowly
builds into the western Great Lakes.
Arctic air flowing across the relatively warmer waters of Lake
Superior will bring significant lake effect snowfall to the
snowbelt region of far northern Wisconsin. Snowfall totals could
approach 1 foot in some locations.
A low pressure system will approach Wisconsin this weekend,
likely bringing accumulating snow to much of the Badgerland
Saturday afternoon into Sunday morning. There is a lot of
uncertainty with the timing and intensity of the low right now, so
the forecast is subject to change in the days ahead. But, be
prepared for the potential of this snowfall and the travel hazards
that may result.
