Polar Vortex Headed For Wisconsin: Arctic Temps And Major Snowfall Expected
Winter storm Decima is coupling with a polar vortex and blasting into Wisconsin for the weekend, just in time to make sure everyone has a white Christmas to remember.
And while for most of Wisconsin a white Christmas is a fairly standard occurrence, it's not usually ushered in with such an abrasive touch.
With the winter storm now hitting America's Dairyland, a new six to eleven inches of snow can be expected all over the state, according to the National Weather Service.
What's more, forecasters at the National Weather Service say just when you think the snow has taped off in your area tonight, you're going to whammied all over again tomorrow starting around lunchtime.
But don't be quick to think it's all over even when that second blast of snow stops. Just as that second wave of snow starts to wind down, then that Polar Vortex, a chilling mad rush of wind from no place other than the North Pole, is going to plummet temps in much of the state to as much as 30 below zero Saturday night.
And you won't likely see them rise above zero during the daytime on Sunday.
Wisconsin natives are no strangers to inclement weather. We're sure you know the drill by now.
Stay inside, stay warm, make sure animals have shelter and keep an eye on your neighbors – and the forecast.
