Justin Liles: Strong winds and bitter cold air returns tonight
A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect tonight due to accumulating snow. Blowing snow may cause difficult travel conditions tonight as visibility drops. The worst of the travel will likely be north of the Iron Range. The Wisconsin south shore (Iron County) may also see accumulations of 3-4 inches tonight into Saturday morning as lake-effect snow occurs. Snow will likely end by the afternoon ours.
Another concern for this evening into Saturday morning will be the strong winds and cold wind chills. Expect northwest winds to increase following the passage of a cold front this evening. Wind gusts are expected to be highest along the North Shore this evening through tonight, with gusts as high as 50 mph.
Rapid falling temperatures will result in wind chills falling well below zero into tomorrow morning. The thermometer will climb some on Sunday with more sunshine. More light snow returns Tuesday and Wednesday with colder conditions.
