The same area of low pressure which brought us Saturday night's rain and Sunday's rain has moved farther east and we are now on the cold side of it so winter and snow have returned. It will stay windy tonight with gusts topping 40mph and that will reduce visibility with the snow falling so be careful on the roads tonight. Most of the snow wraps up by 4am and many locations will pick up 1-3" with higher amounts northwest of Milwaukee. Temperatures fall into the mid-20s overnight and will only climb to the freezing mark on Tuesday with gradual clearing expected. The wind will still be breezy during the day so wind chills will be in the teens and low 20s. Temperatures for revelers will be in the mid-20s with wind chills in the teens surrounding the midnight hour.
January first will be a pleasant start to the new year with a high of 38 degrees and partly sunny skies with a calmer wind. We continue to warm on Thursday with 40s returning and clouds creeping in by the end of the day. Rain is possible Thursday night and into Friday before changing over to snow Friday night and into Saturday with temperatures falling from the 40s on Friday to the 30s by Saturday. The snow stops for Sunday but colder air settles in with highs barely hitting the 30s.
