Today's Storm Team 4cast

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for Waukesha, Walowrth, Jefferson, Fond du Lac, Ozaukee, Dodge, and Washington Counties from midnight Thursday night until 6:00 a.m. Saturday.

It was quite the night in southeastern Wisconsin with our northern counties picking up 1-2" of snow after a tenth of an inch of ice fell.  Most locations in the south picked up an inch to an inch and half of rain with some loud thunderstorms which even brought some small hail, an odd thing for February.  Now we have drizzle, freezing drizzle and some flurries hanging out ahead of a cold front that will swing through tonight, changing all precipitation over to snow before midnight. 

Most locations will pick up and additional 1-2" of snow with the heaviest amounts to the northwest before noon on Saturday.  Lows will drop into the low 20s and it will feel like the teens when you add in the strong northwest wind at 10-20mph.

Snow tapers off well before noon on Saturday morning but some patchy fog may linger despite a strong WNW wind at 15-25mph that will keep wind chills in the teens.  Sunday is looking just a bit breezy but the wind will be from the southwest to usher a high of 40 degrees back to Milwaukee under partly cloudy skies with just an outside chance of a few flurries.

More sunshine is expected by Monday with a calm wind and highs climbing into the low 40s.  A wintry mix is possible on Tuesday morning before changing over to rain as the temperature warms into the upper 40s.  A cold front brings a few flurries and drops highs back into the 30s for Wednesday and the rest of the week.
