Wisconsin Weather Update for January 4, 2011.

By: HaleStorm , 1:57 PM GMT on January 04, 2011

Good Tuesday morning!

Hey! There's snow on the ground again. Where did that come from?
A little area of low pressure that moved through late yesterday, and is now over eastern Michigan this morning. And if that wasn't enough for you, we may see another inch or so of snow develop tomorrow.

It's not going to get cold again, right?

Uhhh... wrong. Unfortunately, the low pressure system mentioned above also had a cold front with it, meaning temperatures behind the front will be colder than they were yesterday. Expect daytime highs only in the upper teens to near 20 today.
