Welcome to February with highs in the mid 40s, and to make it even nicer, we got to enjoy a lot of sun today. I hope you enjoyed some of the nice weather because the next cold front will be here this evening with gusty NW winds, temps dropping into 20s by 10pm and some light snow. By morning, temps are in the single digits and teens with wind chills of 0 to -5. As a huge storm system passes to our south, we will see some light snow tonight and into Wednesday morning, but accumulations will be very light. Areas north of Milwaukee will see less than 1", Milwaukee about 1" and areas near the state border could see about 2". Central Illinois will see up to a foot of snow by Wednesday evening. Wednesday is cold with highs mainly in the teens and wind chills in the single digits all day.
Thursday morning is in the single digits, and highs will stay in the teens with a gusty NE wind. We will be mostly cloudy with some flurries. Friday is partly cloudy and cold with highs near 20 after morning lows near 0. The weekend is quiet and sunny with a brisk breeze and high temps in the upper 20s. Our next chance for snow isn't until next Thursday.
