Another round of snow

The National Weather service says a powerful cold front will push more snow into the northern two-thirds of Wisconsin Monday. Up to eight inches are predicted along Lake Superior in Iron and Ashland counties. More than six inches is expected in the Hayward and Park Falls regions, with two-to-five inches are in the forecast as far south as Juneau and Adams counties.

In most cases, the bulk of the snow will clear out by mid-afternoon – and then strong winds will blow it around, with gusts up to 40-miles-an-hour. Freezing rain is expected in some places once the snow tapers off. Winter weather advisories are in effect as late as 1:00 a.m. Tuesday. Spring is supposed to begin this week, but it looks like winter will drag on for at least a while. The bitter cold temperatures are normally gone by now – but it was 17-below early yesterday at Land O’Lakes in Vilas County. Tomahawk and Eagle River each had minus-13.
