A strong cold front is moving through the Badger State, bringing light rain changing to snow during the evening rush hour. This is a thin band of precipitation and while it will not bring much in terms of accumulation, it does fall at a bad time and may reduce visibility to a quarter to a half mile as it sweeps through. Some light snow is possible from Milwaukee north behind the front but that will wrap up by midnight and leave less than a half an inch of snow behind. The most potent part of the cold front is the chill that follows as temperatures will drop into the teens overnight and windy conditions will make it feel like the single digits on Tuesday morning. Skies will clear to mostly sunny on Tuesday but that won't warm us up much: highs will be in the 20s but with a breezy wind it will feel like the single digits all day long.
The coldest air of the season so far settles in on Wednesday morning under clear skies with lows in the single digits, while it will not be drastically breezy the wind will keep feels like temperatures in the subzero range in the morning, improving to the single digits by the afternoon with partly cloudy skies and highs in the teens.
A warm front moves in on Thursday to bring more clouds and highs back above freezing with the chance for a few flurries by the end of the day. Friday is mild with a high of 40 degrees with a small storm system on the way for the weekend to bring a light wintry mix for Saturday.
