A major winter storm will start to wind down over southern Wisconsin early this evening. It will be mostly cloudy, windy, and colder with occasional snow tapering off to flurries this evening. Additional snow accumulations of 1-3" will be possible through the evening hours. Blowing and drifting snow will be a problem this evening, especially in rural areas. Temperatures will fall to around zero by early Monday morning, and wind chills will be as cold as -10 to -20.

Monday will be partly sunny, but it will be quite cold. High temperatures will only make it to the middle teens. Skies will become mostly cloudy on Monday night, and a few flurries will develop. Temperatures will fall to the upper single digits before climbing back into the teens overnight.  

Flurries will come to an end early Tuesday, but light snow will develop in the afternoon. It won't be as cold as high temperatures will be in the lower to middle 20s. There may be some minor snow accumulations on Tuesday night before the snow tapers to flurries toward Wednesday morning. Any flurries will end early on Wednesday morning, and skies will become partly sunny. Wednesday will be breezy and colder with highs reaching the middle teens in the morning, with temperatures falling in the afternoon. 

Thursday will be mostly sunny, but very cold with low temperatures in the single digits below zero and high temperatures in the middle teens. Wind chills will be as cold as -10 to -20 Thursday morning. Friday will be partly sunny, breezy, and not as cold with high temperatures reaching the middle 20s.

For next weekend, Saturday will be mostly cloudy, breezy, and a little milder with high temperatures climbing into the lower 30s. There is a chance for light snow, possibly mixed with rain or freezing rain late in the day. Sunday will be mostly cloudy with light snow tapering to flurries and ending. High temperatures will top out in the middle 20s in the morning before falling.
