and last updated 2021-12-09 23:34:58-05

The wind had calmed down for tonight and lows will stay near 32 overnight. It is damp and there could be a little patchy fog.

The powerful storm system rolls into our area Friday afternoon with rain likely after 3pm and east winds increasing to 30 mph late in the day. High temps will be in the low 40s despite the clouds and wind. Friday night stays rainy and windy, and rain will be heavy at times. This could have been up to 6" of snow for Milwaukee, but we will be too warm for most of the storm.

Temps do start to drop to near freezing by Saturday morning and the rain changes to snow. The snow should be out of here around noon with about 1" of accumulation for Milwaukee and about 2" on Fond du lac and Sheboygan. Central Wisconsin is under a Winter Storm Warning for 9-12" of snow by midday Saturday. The other issue with Saturday is a strong NW wind. Gusts in SE Wisconsin will be over 40 mph. Sunday is sunny and windy with highs in the mid 40s. Next week is warm with highs near 50 for Monday and Tuesday, and near 60 on Wednesday with rain showers likely ahead of the next cold front.
