...WINDY AND MUCH COLDER TODAY...

COLD CANADIAN AIR WAS SURGING INTO THE AREA THIS MORNING...IN THE
WAKE OF AN INTENSE UPPER-LEVEL DISTURBANCE THAT CROSSED THE STATE
OVERNIGHT. WINDS WERE QUITE STRONG ACROSS THE AREA. THE STRONGEST
WINDS...WITH GUSTS TO NEARLY 50 MPH...WERE OCCURRING OVER NORTHERN
DOOR COUNTY.

SCATTERED SNOW SHOWERS CONTINUED IN THE LAKE SUPERIOR SNOWBELT OF
NORTH-CENTRAL WISCONSIN. THE INTENSITY OF THE SNOW IN THIS AREA
WILL CONTINUE TO FLUCTUATE AS ADDITIONAL SNOW SHOWERS FORM OVER
LAKE SUPERIOR AND MOVE INLAND. BUT OVERALL...THE SNOWFALL WILL NOT
BE AS PERSISTENT OR HEAVY AS IT WAS LATE THURSDAY EVENING.
TEMPERATURES IN THIS AREA WERE GENERALLY A COUPLE DEGREES BELOW
FREEZING...SO THE SNOW WAS ABLE TO COVER UNTREATED ROADWAYS.

AT 645 AM...RADAR INDICATED THAT THE REMNANTS OF THE MAIN BAND OF
PRECIPITATION WAS OVER THE LAKESHORE AREAS OF FAR EASTERN
WISCONSIN. IT WAS MOVING SOUTH AT 35 MPH...AND WILL EXIT THE AREA
BY MID-MORNING. TEMPERATURES OVER EASTERN WISCONSIN WERE STILL
JUST WARM ENOUGH TO ALLOW FOR A MIX OF RAIN AND SNOW WITH THE MAIN
BAND. SCATTERED SNOW FLURRIES WILL LINGER IN THE WAKE OF THE MAIN
BAND.

THE WINDY WEATHER ACROSS THE AREA...AND SNOW IN THE NORTH...WITH
CREATE HAZARDOUS TRAVEL CONDITIONS. USE EXTRA CAUTION WHEN
TRAVELING THIS MORNING. ALSO BE SURE TO DRESS APPROPRIATELY FOR
THE COLD AND WINDY WEATHER.
