Cold Then Snow 011912January 20th, 2012 at 9:52 am by Pete Petoniak under News, Weather
It started to warm up today at about 3 am, that’s when we hit our low of -9° in Green Bay. With warmer air pushing in (although not too warm) so is the snow. Expect snow to start falling in Green Bay and the Fox Cities about noon and continue through this evening. Most of the area will see 2-4″ of accumulation and driving will not be the best as the day wears on.
The temperature will be near 10° when the snow starts flying and that means it will be the light, fluffy kind of snow so it won’t be a back-breaker as you shovel. At such low temperatures though, salt isn’t as effective at melting so roads will get slippery. If you’re traveling to the south you can expect snow all the way through Chicago with the heaviest amounts between Milwaukee and Chicago with a possible 6 to 9 inches of accumulation. Expect sun but cold conditions tomorrow and a wintry mix may make traveling Sunday afternoon a bit tough.
