Snow is in the forecast for parts of Wisconsin this weekend
Snow is in the forecast for parts of Wisconsin this weekend.
The National Weather Service says a big low pressure system is moving east along with the U.S.-Canadian border, and it will push a strong cold front into Wisconsin Saturday.
There's a chance of light snow in the northwest Saturday, with rain or snow in central Wisconsin, and rain elsewhere in the state.
Tonight's lows are supposed to drop into the 20s in north central areas, with freeze warnings in southwest and west central Wisconsin.
Freeze warnings are also posted for Saturday night in much of southern Wisconsin, which means whatever growing season is left will come to an end. Forecasters say the southeast might also get a few snowflakes.
The first trace of snow in Milwaukee is normally seen on Oct. 28, and the earliest date ever for the first visible snow is Sept. 20, 1954.
Rain and snow are in the forecast through Monday, and cold temperatures are expected to continue well into next week.
