(12/30/13) It continues to be the coldest day of the year in Wisconsin. ÂÂ The mercury was still below zero at mid-afternoon as far south as Viroqua and Watertown.
ÂÂ Several cities were at five-below, and Marshfield was the southern-most place in that group. ÂÂ Milwaukee was the warm spot at seven above. ÂÂ Winds were relatively light, so wind chill factors were not a problem. ÂÂ The actual temperature got down to 28-below in parts of northern Wisconsin early today. ÂÂ 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. ÂÂ 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. ÂÂ Overnight lows are expected to be 4-to-10 below. ÂÂ 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.
