GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Wind chill advisories continue through noon in all of Wisconsin, as January's second major cold snap enters its final day.
Siren in Burnett County was the state's cold spot at 8 a.m. Thursday, with an actual temperature of 21-below zero and a wind chill of minus-37.
Parts of southeast Wisconsin were the only places above zero. Sheboygan was at 3, and the region had wind chills generally in the minus-teens.
Much of far northern Wisconsin along Lake Superior did not get as much lake effect snow as predicted. Herbster in Bayfield County had 1.5 inches, and Cornucopia picked up 3 inches before the snow tapered off Thursday morning.
Gile in Iron County had just under six inches as of Wednesday night, and it was still coming down. That area could get the predicted total of 7 or more inches.
A sunny day is in store for Thursday, with highs from zero to 10-above. It could get down to minus-12 Thursday night, before warming up into the 20's Friday with more light snow. Colder highs in the single digits are forecast for the weekend.
