MILWAUKEE — A deep freeze is coming to Wisconsin this weekend (well, deep freeze for May at least). We're almost to the point when we can expect consistent warm weather, but were not there yet.

It all starts Thursday night. Our meteorologist Brian Gotter expects temperatures will drop to the low 30's in many areas of Southeastern Wisconsin. In fact, the National Weather Service is expected to issue a freeze warning later Thursday night for Sheboygan, Fon du Lac, Dodge, and Washington counties.

There is a freeze watch for all of SE Wisconsin Friday night going into Saturday morning. The low could reach in the 20's and that has the potential to damage budding trees.

Things get a little warmer for Mother's day but not by much. You should expect 40's and maybe a drizzle or two.

But hey, at least we aren't Maine. The NWS is predicted four to six inches of widespread snow this weekend.
