It was a very cold morning with inland areas in the mid-20s to freezing in Milwaukee. If that wasn't enough, we had snow showers all day. While we average 2" of snow in April, it is never a nice sight to see, especially in late April. Most of us saw at least a trace of snow today on the grassy surfaces and it stuck to the trees for a while before quickly melting. Temps have been stuck in the 30s all day with a brisk wind. The wintry mix moves out this evening and the sky clears overnight with another very cold night. Inland will have a hard freeze with temps in the mid-20s and Milwaukee will be 30. We quickly get back to normal on Thursday with sunshine, a SW wind to 20 mph, and highs in the mid-50s.
Friday is also mild with highs in the mid to upper 50s, but clouds increase and so does the chance for rain by late afternoon and evening. Saturday is mostly cloudy with highs in the low to mid-50s, but now it just looks like a spotty rain shower. The NE wind returns on Sunday, and despite the sunshine, highs are in the 40s near the lake to lower 50s inland. The wind becomes southerly once again by Monday with highs near 60, and we will be in the 70s on Tuesday.
