A low pressure system that will eventually become a Nor'Easter is sliding through the Plains/lower Midwest bringing the threat for snow as we kick off the weekend. Once this low scoots to our south and east, cooler air moves on in for next week. And long range models suggest the cooler air isn't leaving any time soon.

Most will make off with around an inch of snow or less across southern Wisconsin by the time Saturday morning rolls around. Those farther west, there's a chance to pick up to 4", especially along the Mississippi River. Grant, Crawford, La Crosse and Vernon counties are under a winter weather advisory until 3am Saturday

The snow tapers off overnight Friday leaving the area with quiet conditions through Sunday night, when our next round of light snow may pass through Wisconsin. This round will bring around a .25", at most, to central parts of southern Wisconsin. 

After temperatures steadily climb back into the low to mid 30s by M.L.K Jr. Day, temperatures quickly drop back into the low to mid teens for highs by Tuesday where they'll stay through the second half of the upcoming work week.
