Wisconsin Weather Summary

230 AM CST Mon Jan 16 2017
Thanks to high pressure, it was a seasonally beautiful day across the
Badgerland. Skies were clear throughout much of the day, and
temperatures neared the freezing make through much of the state.
Winds were light through the day.
Clouds continued to increase well ahead of a storm system in the
southern Plains. Temperatures dropped off into the single digits and
teens across much of the north though many areas in the south
remained in the 20s.
Developing low pressure in the southern Plains will track toward
northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin today and across the area
tonight. This will return wintery weather to the region, beginning
early today in the south. A wintery mix of sleet, freezing rain and
snow will spread across southern into central and northern Wisconsin
this afternoon and evening.
Snowfall from this system will remain on the lighter side. The main
impacts will be from areas of freezing rain and glazing that will
cause hazardous travel across central and parts of southern
Wisconsin. Winter Weather Advisories and Winter Storm Watches are
currently in effect for Monday into Monday night.
Warmer air getting pulled into the system will result in the wintery
mix changing to mostly rain over parts of southern Wisconsin.
