Wisconsin Weather Update

Wisconsin Weather Update for January 27, 2014.

By: HaleStorm, 2:31 PM GMT on January 27, 2014

Forecast Summary: Bitter cold today and tomorrow. Little if any snow this week.

Active Advisories:
Wind Chill Advisory remains in effect until 9 PM CST this evening...
Wind chill warning remains in effect from 9 PM this evening to noon CST Tuesday...

Today:
Synopsis: A strong area of low pressure to our east will develop a lot of snow over parts of New England, but around here strong northwesterly winds behind the system will bring another round of arctic cold to Wisconsin today and tomorrow. Our normal high is the mid- 20s, but we won’t get anywhere near that (again) this week.
Conditions: Partly cloudy, windy and bitterly cold.
High Temp: Temps not moving much today with a nasty best-case temperature of -7. Wind chills to -35.
Winds: Windy at times from the west-northwest.

Raw Model Data: (combined numerical output range from three different NOAA weather models)
Appleton: Highs -8 to -9.
Madison: Highs -6 to -10.
Milwaukee: Highs -3 to -4.

Tonight:
Conditions: Clouds and stars. And cold. Lots of cold.
Low Temp: Near -20. Wind chills as bad as -40.

Tomorrow:

Synopsis: More colors rarely seen on a temperature weather map will remain over the Great Lakes tomorrow as the arctic air mass from Canada continues to invade our country. You know it’s bad when we’ve run out of colors on our temperature weather map and they have to start repeating. If the kids still have school today, they might not tomorrow.
Conditions: Partly sunny, breezy, and again ridiculously cold.
Temps: Highs up to a non-balmy -5. Lows to -10. Wind chills to -40 during the day, -35 tomorrow night as winds slowly lessen and warmer air starts moving in tomorrow night.
Winds: Breezy from the west.

Extended Outlook:
Wednesday: Partly cloudy and breezy. Light snow or flurries Wednesday night? Highs in the low to mid- teens…ABOVE ZERO!
Thursday: Clouds and flurries early, then maybe some sunshine. Highs in the mid- to upper teens.
Friday: Mostly sunny. Highs around ten above.
Saturday: Partly cloudy. Highs in the mid- to upper teens.
Sunday: Increasing clouds. Highs in the low to mid- teens.
