Don't kill the messenger on this one, but chances are pretty high we sink back down to freezing temperatures this weekend.
The National Weather Service is forecasting a Canadian cold front in the area beginning Friday morning. Storm Team 4 Meteorologist Brian Niznansky predicts the low for that day will be a frigid 32 degrees, while the high is just 44.
A Canadian cold front will arrive early Friday morning marking the beginning of a very cool period for southern WI. Freezing temperatures are looking likely especially for early Saturday morning. #swiwx pic.twitter.com/jmNgiiFfjO— NWS Milwaukee (@NWSMKX) May 5, 2020
Freezing conditions mean you may want to keep an eye on any vegetation or gardens, and definitely hold off on any spring planting.
The coldest temperatures look like they'll be Friday night into Saturday morning when the NWS says a hard freeze is expected. Saturday's high is 54 degrees and the low is 36.
A couple nice spring days followed by chilly conditions. Freezing temps possible early Friday AM, but a hard freeze is likely for late Fri nt-Sat AM. Protect sensitive vegetation. #swiwx pic.twitter.com/rrhTzvnrPk— NWS Milwaukee (@NWSMKX) May 6, 2020
Mother's Day doesn't look too great either with a high of 48, low of 38 and slight chance of a rain/snow mix. Let's just...hope for the best.
