and last updated 2021-12-30 23:27:23-05

***A WINTER STORM WATCH FOR MILWAUKEE, RACINE, AND KENOSHA COUNTIES WILL START SATURDAY AFTERNOON AND CONTINUE INTO EARLY SUNDAY MORNING. THIS AREA IS LIKELY TO SEE 4-8" OF SNOW, SOME LAKE EFFECT SNOW, PLUS GUSTY WINDS.​​***

Thursday night some light snow showers and a little drizzle/freezing drizzle are possible. Spotty slick spots may develop on the roads. In addition, patchy fog is possible overnight. Low temperatures will fall into the mid to upper 20s.

Friday will be mainly cloudy and mild with highs in the mid to upper 30s. In the afternoon and evening we will watch a light wintry mix move in with a few light snow showers, rain showers, and the potential for freezing drizzle for areas where temps are below freezing. This could cause slippery roads for New Year's Eve plans, check road conditions before heading out. Lows fall into the mid to upper 20s.

Snow moves in Saturday. A few light snow showers are possible in the morning, but the bulk of the snow moves in during the afternoon and evening. There will be impacts to travel with slick roads and low visibility. The track of the system will be critical in determining snow totals. As of Thursday evening, it looks like the highest totals will be for southern areas, lower totals farther north. The broad range estimate is 1-4" north, 3-6" central, and 4-8" possible for Milwaukee, Racine, and Kenosha counties. We have to watch the potential for lake effect snow enhancement in Milwaukee, Racine, and Kenosha counties as well. Stay with us for updates, as track changes will lead to adjustments in totals. Winds will gust up to 35 mph, daytime temperatures will be in the 20s, Saturday night lows drop into the teens.

Sunday snow moves out and we see some sun, but it will be cold. Highs only make it into the teens, and wind chills will be around 0°. Sunday night lows fall into the single digits, and it feels like single digits below zero.
