Most places picked up 4-7" of snow with a few isolated higher and lower amounts across southeastern Wisconsin and there are still a few scattered showers that will fizzle out tonight, not adding much to our totals. Hopefully you enjoyed the snow during the daytime hours as the temperature is quickly falling and the wind is increasing with gusts up to 40mph possible tonight. Lows will fall into the single digits and with a constant, strong westerly wind at 20-25mph it will feel like -10° to -20° overnight and Sunday morning. A Wind Chill Advisory has been issued for Jefferson and Walworth county which runs through noon on Sunday with frostbite possible in 30 minutes so bundle up!
Sunday will be mostly cloudy, cold and windy with highs in the teens, feeling like -5° to -15° when you factor in a breezy northwest wind, gusting to 30mph. The sunshine makes a return for Martin Luther King Jr. Day and the wind will be calm, making the 23 degree high temperature in Milwaukee actually feel like January. Tuesday will be similar with highs in the low 20s and mostly sunny skies but crisp starts to the morning with lows not even reaching the teens.
Warmer air starts to move in on Wednesday with highs in the mid-30s as the clouds begin to roll in ahead of our next big storm system. The track on this one is still to be determined so keep up with the evolving forecast but the way it looks right now is that we will see a wintry mix for Thursday and Friday with highs in the mid to upper-30s. This will transition to snow as we get into Saturday morning and the system exits the area.
