There has been plenty of time this weekend to get any outdoor chores done with highs in the 40s yesterday and even a few 50s today despite the clouds that rolled in. Tonight we stay quiet as well with some clearing expected with temperatures falling close to freezing by Monday morning. Monday will be a relatively uneventful weather day with partly to mostly cloudy skies and a stray sprinkle possible with highs in the upper 40s.
Tuesday will start out dry so if you must travel on Tuesday get an early start. After the noon hour rain will ramp up across southeastern Wisconsin with highs in the low 40s. Snow is expected in central Wisconsin and some flakes may mix in with the rain late Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning but around here there shouldn't be much accumulating snow, mainly a half an inch to an inch of rain with the wintry mix possible on Wednesday morning. This system still has the potential to shift paths so stay tuned to the forecast closely this week but everyone will see increasing winds with this storm system, no matter what type of precipitation we receive. Highs on Wednesday will top out in the low 40s with a drier evening expected for travelers.
Thanksgiving is looking colder with highs in the upper 30s however it does look drier for all the trips over the river and through the woods. Black Friday temperatures will start in the upper 20s, so it will be chilly for shoppers before another major storm system moves in later in the day to bring a wintry mix heading into the weekend.
