Bitter Cold Continues

(12/30/13) It continues to be the coldest day of the year in Wisconsin.  The mercury was still below zero at mid-afternoon as far south as Viroqua and Watertown.

 Several cities were at five-below, and Marshfield was the southern-most place in that group.  Milwaukee was the warm spot at seven above.  Winds were relatively light, so wind chill factors were not a problem.  The actual temperature got down to 28-below in parts of northern Wisconsin early today.  The National Weather Service says a high pressure system that delivered the Arctic cold is moving to our east, so it won't be as cold tonight.  It's supposed to be partly-to-mostly cloudy this evening, with a new chance of light snow as another low pressure system gets closer to Wisconsin.  Overnight lows are expected to be 4-to-10 below.   During the day on New Year's Eve, there's a continued chance of light snow -- but it's supposed to remain cold, with highs of zero-to-eight above statewide.
