Weather Summary for North-Central and Northeast Wisconsin
National Weather Service Green Bay WI
324 AM CST Tue Feb 28 2017
A band of light rain moved northeast into the region during the
overnight hours. The rain mainly impacted central and east-central
Wisconsin, while northern Wisconsin stayed dry. Low temperatures
were reached before midnight in the upper 20s to lower 30s, with
readings slowly rising thereafter.
An area of low pressure is forecast to move from the central
Plains toward the western Great Lakes today and bring several
bands of mainly light rain to the region. The rain may be mixed
with a little freezing rain or sleet far north this morning with
rain becoming more likely this afternoon. There will also be areas
of fog through the day which would lower visibilities.
As the surface low begins to move away late tonight, colder air
is expected to get pulled into the region and begin to transition
the rain to snow from northwest to southeast. Any accumulations
should be minor due to temperatures still somewhat mild.
The combination of the exiting surface low with a trailing mid-
level trough, will produce snow mainly across east-central
Wisconsin on Wednesday. 2 to 4 inches of new snow is forecast
generally south of a line from Wisconsin Rapids to Sturgeon Bay
with the higher amounts south and east of the Fox Valley. Gusty
north winds at 15 to 25 mph will also create blowing and drifting
of the snow.
