Widespread dense fog across Wisconsin will cause travel issues this morning. Along with the poor visibility, some icy spots are possible on untreated roads due to the chilly temperatures. Drivers should be especially careful on lesser traveled roads, and on bridges and overpasses. The fog is expected to remain thick into the midday, with some improvement this afternoon. Even though visibility will slowly improve, skies will stay cloudy all throughout the day, with high temperatures in the lower 30s.

As a gentle northeast breeze blows off of Lake Michigan tonight and into Thursday, some lake flakes or freezing drizzle is possible. It’s most likely closer to the lakeshore, with a smaller chance farther inland. Other than a dusting on the ground, sizable accumulation is not expected. Tomorrow’s severe weather outlook remains VERY LOW.

Looking ahead, there’s no big storms in sight... And the forecast looks rather mild for January with many highs in the lower 30s. However, we pay the price with more gloomy clouds, which will hang around through the weekend.
