GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - It was no warmer in Wisconsin early Thursday afternoon than it was at 6 a.m.
In fact, it's a few degrees colder in some places -- evidence that a high pressure system with the coldest air of the season is taking hold.
Parts of northern Wisconsin were in the single digits above zero during the lunch hour. Hayward was the cold spot at 7-above. Kenosha was the warm spot at 28. Milwaukee and Racine were at 27, a few degrees colder than early Thursday morning.
The National Weather Service said the winds were supposed to get stronger Thursday afternoon in some places, creating the chance for dangerous wind chills Thursday night.
Friday night is expected to be the coldest, with lows projected to be 10-below by Saturday morning in much of the Badger State.
A warmer Sunday is in the offing, with highs in the teens and 20's -- following by our next chance of snow Sunday night into Monday.
