The Salvation Army of Brown County has opened as a warming shelter because of the cold. The chapel at the Salvation Army Corps building at 626 Union Court will be open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. throughout the winter on any day when the temperature, actual or wind chill, is below minus10 degrees.
A wind chill advisory for all Northeastern Wisconsin expired at noon.
Monday’s forecast includes a high temperature of 3, with a wind out of the west southwest at 6 to 8 mph. There’s a 50 percent chance for snow Monday night, although not more than a half-inch is expected. The low is forecast around minus 3, with wind chill values between minus 10 and minus 20.
Tuesday’s outlook isn’t much better, with a high near 4 and wind chill values again between minus 10 and minus 20.
The weather service said high temperatures in the low teens are forecast for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
