TWO FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAYS... A BLIZZARD IS POSSIBLE TOMORROW
Your First Alert Weather Forecast:
A Winter Storm Warning has now been posted for all of northeast Wisconsin. Snow continues to fall for most of northeast Wisconsin and it will continue through most of the afternoon. Much of the area have already picked up 1-4″, although some folks along the lakeshore may have received less. Regardless, travel will be difficult at times as more snow falls across the area. Drivers should take it slow and allow for extra travel time. Through this evening, most snowfall totals will vary from 4-8″, so you’ll likely have some shoveling or snowblowing to do. Our severe weather outlook is MODERATE.
As a cold front continues to pass through the area, temperatures will be falling into the single digits with wind chills below zero. Temperatures will fall below zero overnight, with wind chills ranging from -10 to -30. These harsh “feel-like temperatures” are courtesy of intensifying west-northwest winds. This wind will cause even bigger problems for us heading into tomorrow...
Friday’s severe weather outlook is HIGH... Fierce winds gusting around 50 mph will likely blow any falling, or new fallen snow into a whiteout at times. A BLIZZARD is possible across northeast Wisconsin, which would make travel NEAR IMPOSSIBLE, especially in open country. Along with the tremendous blowing and drifting snow, our wind chills will be the nasty teens and twenties below zero. All things considered, tomorrow is a day to stay home is you can help it.
As this winter storm moves away, we’ll still have bitter cold air and harsh wind chills. Those “feel-like temperatures” will be in the teens and twenties below zero at times during the Christmas weekend. The wind will finally die down as we head into Christmas morning.
Stay tuned to WBAY-TV both on-air and online as we follow this major winter storm heading into the holiday weekend!
