Wisconsin Weather Update for December 16, 2013.

By: HaleStorm , 1:33 PM GMT on December 16, 2013

Cold morning, then 2-3” of snow later today and tonight.
It’s a very cold start to your day in Wisconsin with most of us below zero as of 7am. You may be seeing some sunshine out there, but it won’t last long as a disturbance stemming from a low pressure system in Manitoba, Canada, will cloud things up shortly and start developing snow showers this afternoon and evening. The snow should end early tomorrow but not before a fresh 2-3” lands on your driveway. We will warm up starting tonight through Thursday, but look out for a mixed bag of precip headed our way Thursday. Could be rain, snow, sleet, freezing rain, or maybe a wintry cornucopia of all of them!
