Tonight a band of light snow will impact mainly our southern counties, with some chance for a little light snow as far north as Milwaukee. Any new accumulations will stay under 1". Overnight lows fall into the teens inland, low 20s lakeside.
Thursday will be mostly cloudy with a few flurries and light snow showers. Little to no accumulation expected. Highs will be in the low to mid 30s.
Friday is mostly cloudy with highs in the mid to upper 30s. New Year's Eve looks rather quiet weatherwise with mainly cloudy skies and lows in the 20s.
Saturday our next winter weather system moves in. Saturday morning a brief period of freezing drizzle is possible. Then snow is expected to start in the afternoon and continue into Saturday night and early Sunday morning. This system is likely to have significant impacts for travel around southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois. It's still a little too early for specific snow totals. As of now, it looks like there will be a fairly sharp cut-off on the northern edge of the snow, meaning some areas only see a few inches, while others could see 5" or more. The track of the low, and small changes in that track will result in shifts in the area of heaviest snow. Check back with us through the end of the week for updates.
Saturday night through Sunday and into Sunday night the weather turns very cold, with overnight lows in the single digits and teens, and highs Sunday only in the teens. With breezy winds, it will feel more like single digits above and below zero.
