We started our Saturday with areas of freezing drizzle and freezing fog, making for a slick start on some of the side streets and roads. Drier air has rushed in and the clouds will be clearing overnight tonight, allowing temperatures to drop into the teens. It will be a bit breezy tonight as well so wind chills will be in the single digits on Sunday morning as the sun makes its appearance.

Sunday stays dry but colder with highs in the mid-20s and wind chills stuck mostly in the teens even with a lighter wind. A few high clouds roll in by sunset in the south with a storm system moving through Kansas, Missouri and Illinois to bring them ice and snow through Monday. This system will keep us mostly cloudy on Monday with highs barely reaching 30 degrees but the majority of the snow will stay to our south with just a slim chance for a few flurries near the Illinois border, we will not be shoveling here in southeastern Wisconsin.

The wind kicks up on Tuesday as skies begin to clear but the sunshine won't warm us up much as highs will dip back down to the mid-20s, again feeling colder with the wind. The quiet conditions continue on Wednesday with sunshine and cold temps in the 20s. A warm front brings some more clouds for Thursday but also boosts the temperature into the mid-30s with a breezy wind. Some light snow showers are possible on Friday into Saturday but this doesn't look to be a big storm system. The next major storm system to swing through southeastern Wisconsin looks closer to Dec. 26th/27th which is still quite far out at this point.
