******WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY FOR FOND DU LAC, DODGE, SHEBOYGAN, OZAUKEE, WASHINGTON COUNTIES FROM 5 P.M. WEDNESDAY UNTIL 1 P.M. THURSDAY*****
The snow arrived right on time and caused a major headache for the evening commute. The roads were mainly wet and slushy while the grassy surfaces and roof tops picked up a quick inch of snow. Scattered snow showers continue this evening with 1-2" of slush in Milwaukee to Madison, and 2-4" north. The northern counties are under a Winter Weather Advisory until 1pm Thursday. It will be a windy night and Thursday with an easterly wind of 20-40 mph. A Wind Advisory is in effect until 1pm Thursday for Milwaukee to Madison and areas south for gusts to 50 mph.
That snow quickly melts with highs in the low 40s and heavy rain Thursday afternoon. We could see 1-2" of rain across the area from a few lines of afternoon downpours and thunderstorms. There is actually a marginal risk for some of these storms to become severe. As the system pulls away on Friday we get a strong SW wind to 35 mph and highs near 50. We get to enjoy the sun on Saturday with highs near 50 and a west wind to 20 mph. Another storm system arrives Sunday morning with a chance for more rain and snow showers throughout the day with highs near 40 and a strong NE wind.
