...ARCTIC AIR ARRIVING ON GUSTY WEST WINDS THROUGH TONIGHT...

An Arctic air mass will pour into the area this afternoon into
tonight on gusty west winds. The gusty winds are expected to reach
central and north central Wisconsin by mid afternoon and then northeast
Wisconsin by late afternoon into early evening. Areas which
recently picked up a fluffy type of snow in the last 24 hours
will also be a prime location for blowing and drifting of this
snow. North to south roadways will be the most vulnerable.

The arctic air will continue to filter into the region tonight
into friday morning. Winds are expected to diminish overnight,
however, some locations which do not report calming winds may see
wind chills from 15 to 25 below zero. North central Wisconsin
should see the coldest readings.

Motorists for the afternoon and evening commute should be prepared
for scattered slippery spots due to drifting snow with the gusty
west winds, along with briefly reduced visibilities in higher
gusts.
