Wisconsin Weather Update

UNDATED (AP) -- Many schools across Wisconsin that haven't already canceled classes today are closing early in anticipation of a winter storm headed for the Badger State.

From Tomah to Mishicot, schools are dismissing early this afternoon before the weather gets rough.

A strong arctic front will bring plummeting temperatures, strong wind, reduced visibility and bitter cold wind chills.

January has brought a weird combination of weather to Wisconsin -- including fog, record warmth, bitter cold, snowstorms and tornadoes.

The National Weather Service says the strong low pressure system is similar to one that moved through in early January, producing record high temperatures in southern Wisconsin and storms January seventh that included rare tornadoes in Kenosha County.

A day before that, heavy fog enveloped a freeway near Madison and caused massive pileups involving about 100 vehicles. Two people died and dozens were injured.
