GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - It continues to be the coldest day of the year in Wisconsin.
The mercury was still below zero at mid-afternoon as far south as Viroqua and Watertown. Several cities were at five-below, and Marshfield was the southern-most place in that group.
Milwaukee was the warm spot at 7 above. Winds were relatively light, so wind chill factors were not a problem.
The actual temperature got down to 28-below in parts of northern Wisconsin early Monday. The National Weather Service says a high pressure system that delivered the Arctic cold is moving to our east, so it won't be as cold Monday night.
It's supposed to be partly to mostly cloudy this evening, with a new chance of light snow as another low pressure system gets closer to Wisconsin. Overnight lows are expected to be 4 to 10-below.
During the day on New Year's Eve, there's a continued chance of light snow -- but it's supposed to remain cold, with highs of zero to 8-above statewide.
