    (WLUK) -- Snow, sleet and freezing rain. That's what people saw during Winter Storm Chase as it hit the area Thursday throughout the day.

    Conditions made for dangerous commutes, and a challenging forecast.

    But as the Winter Storm makes its way out, single digit temperatures are making their way in.

    While this is a named winter storm, it is being named because of a combination of wintry weather, not just the snow. Just because the snow forecast may not be a "big" one, that doesn't mean impacts from ice and sleet weren't just as dangerous.

    That was a case for those involved in a roll over crash on I-41, just north of Kaukauna.

    The precipitation wrapped up in the late evening hours, well after dinnertime for most.

    Friday welcomes a partly sunny day, both windy and much colder. The high only reaches 7 and winds could gust as high as 35 miles per hour behind the storm.

    Our advice: Bundle up.

    Wind chills will be well below zero all day long.

    Saturday looks mostly cloudy with a high near 10 degrees with light winds.

    Sunday will be cloudy and some light snow is possible. The high reaches 20 degrees.

    We will start next week dry and seasonable, with a high in the low 20s and partly cloudy skies on Monday.

    Tuesday another weathermaker pushes in with the potential for significant accumulating snow. The FOX 11 meteorologists will be watching this one closely, and bringing you updates often right here.
