GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The latest cold snap in Wisconsin began Monday.
After mild readings in the 30's Sunday, the mercury dropped to the single digits and teens Monday afternoon in northern and central areas.
Weather officials said a good part of the nation will remain cold for most of the week from the Midwest through New England.
Northwest and east central Wisconsin received a fresh coating of snow Monday morning. Four inches fell in parts of Ashland and Bayfield counties, and it was still coming down as of mid-day. One to three inches swept through eastern Portage County through Waupaca and Door counties.
It was still in the 20's in much of southern Wisconsin early Monday afternoon, but they'll get cold as well.
Monday night's lows are expected in the single digits in the south, to around 14-below in Eau Claire and the northwest. All of Wisconsin could be below zero Tuesday night. The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Chill Advisory for the entire listening area from 9 p.m. Monday until 10 a.m. Tuesday.
Another weak storm system is due in on Wednesday, with an inch or two of snow possible. But we're not supposed to get any real warm up until Friday, when temps in the low 20's are forecast statewide.
