This morning was in the single digits once again with wind chills below zero, and despite a sunny day, highs only climbed into the 20s and wind chills in the single digits and teens. We will see a few clouds tonight, otherwise it is cold once again with a low of 7 in Milwaukee to near 0 inland. At least the wind dies down tonight. Clouds increase on Thursday with a high of 26 and a light SE breeze. The clouds will bring a few flurries late Thursday night into early Friday morning, but the accumulating snow will stay in northern Illinois. Once we get the flurries and out of here Friday morning, we see afternoon sunshine with highs above freezing.


Saturday is cloudy, windy and mild with a high of 41 and SE winds gusting to 35 mph as a bigger storm system moves in with a slight chance for rain/snow before noon. Then it becomes all rain in the afternoon and evening…and it will be heavy at times. Most of the area could get close to 1” of rain by early Sunday morning. Sunday morning will see light rain changing to light snow with a dusting of accumulation in Milwaukee to 1-2” of snow in Fond du Lac. Highs early in the day will be near 40, and then dropping with the gusty west wind to 35 mph. Monday is sunny and cooler with a high of 34.
