GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - It's not as cold as expected in northern Wisconsin on this first morning of 2014.  

But the eastern counties along Lake Michigan will get a bigger dose of lake effect snow than was originally forecast -- up to 8 inches in Metro Milwaukee.  

About the southern third of the Badger State got at least some snow on New Year's Eve.  

Janesville reported the most, with three-and-a-half inches by early evening. Most other parts of the region had 2 to 3 inches.

The National Weather Service says a low pressure system that's moving south of Wisconsin will bring lake effect snows to eastern Wisconsin. Milwaukee, Racine, and Kenosha could get 4 to 8 inches Wednesday and Thursday. Three to five inches are in the forecast along the lake between Kewaunee and Ozaukee counties.  

The nearest tier of inland counties can expect 1 to 3 inches. The rest of Wisconsin will stay dry, or close to it.  

Meanwhile, it's warmer than expected in the north, if you can call it that. It was 17-below at 5 a.m. in Hayward, where the overnight low was predicted to be minus-27.

Winds are light for the most part. Highs Wednesday are expected from the single digits above in the north, to around 20 in the southeast.  

Wednesday night's lows are expected to be in the teens in the south, to the teens-below in the far north.
