LAKE WINNEBAGO — Cold air plunges into Wisconsin at the end of this week, according to WBAY Meteoroligist David Ernst.
That’s good news for ice anglers waiting for area lakes and bays to safely freeze over.
Satellite images from the National Weather Service shows Lake Winnebago largely frozen over, although anglers are urged to carefully assess local conditions.
However members of a popular Facebook Lake Winnebago fishing group say there are still many areas of open water.
Green Bay is beginning to freeze over, according to the satellite image.
Lows should be around 10° Wednesday night and might dip below zero Thursday night.
Highs both Thursday and Friday should stay in the teens.
Temperatures may warm some to begin the weekend, but another round of snow/mix could develop Saturday followed by another blast of cold air to begin next week.
