The cold just won’t stop.

The National Weather Service in La Crosse, Wis., has issued a wind chill warning for 6 p.m. Wednesday through noon Thursday. The weather service also issued winter weather advisory for blowing snow, as strong wind gust after a dusting of snow overnight is reducing visibilities and could cause drifting on rural roads.

Temperatures are expected to fall to 16 below overnight, with a 23 to 25 mph winds, 34 mph gusts and wind chills as low as 41 below.

It won’t warmup much Thursday when there will be a high of minus 3, a low of minus 6 and wind chills as low as 41 below.

The weather will warmup briefly on Friday, when the high will reach 28, but highs will drop to the teens over the weekend and then to zero on Monday.

Another few inches of snow is expected Friday afternoon and evening.
