Low temps, strong winds expected tonight

WTMJ4 meteorologist Craig Koplein anticipated the Lake Country area would see a total of 9 to12 inches of snow before the storm was all done this evening, but he said now the concern was shifting to the bitterly cold temperatures and strong winds expected this evening.

This afternoon temperatures are expected to turn "nasty cold" and damaging winds up to 25 to 40 mph and gusts as high as 50 mph were expected into the night, Koplein said.

The sustained winds will cause snow to blow all over and may make rural roads "dang near impassable," said Koplein, a Pewaukee High School graduate. Power companies were concerned that the heavy snow that fell on trees and power lines had the potential to cause severe damage if instead of falling off the weight of the snow caused trees and power lines to break, Koplein said.

Thursday’s mercury is expected to read about 10 degrees but the wind chill is expected to be below 0 all day. Koplein said Friday temperatures should be close to 30 degrees and over the weekend close to 30.
