RHINELANDER, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News) It's beginning to feel like winter in far northern Wisconsin, where temperatures dropped into the teens overnight. Rhinelander had a wind-chill factor of 8-above at 7am, with an actual reading of 17.
Hayward was the state's cold spot with 15.
La Crosse was the only Wisconsin reporting station that was above freezing, at 33.
The National Weather Service said a cold front went through the Great Lakes region yesterday, ending the rain-and-snow from earlier this week and replacing mild southerly breezes with cold air from the northwest. Places that were in the 50's on Monday were in the 30's yesterday afternoon.
Parts of the north had up to 5-inches of snow, while southwest Wisconsin got waterlogged with up to an-inch-and-a-half of rain. It's dry this morning but a new low-pressure system is moving in, giving us another chance of scattered sprinkles and light rain and-or snow this afternoon and again tomorrow. A slight warm-up is expected tomorrow, with highs in the 40's statewide at least into Veterans Day on Monday.
