Welcome to January with temps in the teens all day, wind chills at or below zero with west winds gusting to 40 mph and light snow showers. Areas north of Milwaukee have seen 1-2" of fluffy snow while Milwaukee and areas south have seen a trace. The gusty winds have created blowing and drifting snow in open areas and that will continue this evening with gusts to near 30 mph. We stay cloudy overnight with scattered flurries and the wind around 10-20 mph by morning. With lows in the single digits inland, wind chills could be as cold as -5.

A dusting of accumulation is expected.

Thursday night clears out and it gets cold with a low of 4 in Milwaukee to -5 inland. The wind is light, but wind chills will still be as cold as -10 to -20 in some areas.
