The National Weather Service says this winter is shaping up to be one of the coldest on record. Meteorologist Sarah Marquardt says windchills Tuesday morning are expected to be in the -30 to 40 below
zero range. Marquardt says when its this cold it take only minutes for frostbite to occur on exposed skin.
Marquardt says even though high temps are expected to rise into the upper teens or near 20 starting Thursday and through the weekend…bitter cold is expected to return early next week. She says there is nothing in the forecast to indicate the arctic cold will lessen its grip on Wisconsin anytime soon.
