Lake effect snows are just getting started close to Lake Superior in far northern Wisconsin. Rhinelander had one-point-four inches as of early this (Thursday) morning -- and places north of that city are bracing for as much as ten inches by evening.
The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for Iron County where six to ten inches are in the forecast. Winter weather advisories are in place for Ashland and Bayfield counties, where two to six inches of snow are predicted. An arctic cold front will then bring in the coldest temperatures of the fall, with lows getting down to three above by tomorrow (Friday) morning in Superior -- and places as far south as Wausau will drop into the single digits before a warmup begins in time for the weekend.
