GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - It's brutally cold in Wisconsin Tuesday morning -- but a few degree less brutal than three weeks ago, when the wind chill factors got down to 55-below.
At 7 a.m., the coldest wind chill in the Badger State was 48-below in Rhinelander, with readings in the minus-30's and 40's throughout Wisconsin.
Actual temperatures were predicted to drop to 30-below -- and Sparta came the closest at 29-below at 7 a.m. The southern half of the state was in the minus-teens.
About 350 Wisconsin Public Service electric customers were without power in the Stevens Point and Plover region.
The arctic cold is expected to continue for one more day and night. Wind chill warnings and advisories continue throughout the Badger State until around 10 a.m. Wednesday.
A new weather system is supposed to bring southwest winds into Wisconsin late Wednesday and into Thursday. Look for highs in the teens Wednesday and the 20's on Thursday.
A couple inches of new snow is possible in the southern part of the state.
