The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for Vilas County in northern Wisconsin where 3 to 6 inches of additional snow was expected Tuesday. Monday's snowfall dumped 5.8 inches in the southeastern community of Wind Point and 3.7 inches in Milwaukee.

Temperatures slid below zero in the southern Wisconsin city of Elkhorn early Tuesday where it was minus 1.

Overnight warming shelters opened for the first time this year in Milwaukee Monday night, the earliest opening that one organizer can recall. Capuchin Community Services director Robert Wotypka tells WISN-TV that last year they didn't open until around Dec. 20.
