Many spots saw 1" to 4" of fresh snow across southeastern Wisconsin after 41 days without seeing at least an inch of accumulation in Milwaukee. The snow has moved east and the clouds will follow tonight with temperatures falling to 22 degrees at midnight, feeling like 11 degrees when you add in a slightly breezy westerly wind.
New Year's Day will start out with temperatures in the teens inland and close to twenty degrees near Lake Michigan and we will double that temperature by midday thanks to plentiful sun and a southwesterly breeze making for a great start to 2020.
Warming continues on Thursday with a high of 44 degrees and more clouds rolling in through the afternoon. Rain returns on Friday, changing over to snow as temperatures fall from an early high of 40 degrees. Snow will exit on Saturday with colder air to follow as temperatures fall back to the low 30s for the weekend with another chance for some lighter snow on Sunday.
