We are starting February very much like the end of January: mild with plenty of cloud cover however there have been a few glimpses of the sun today across southeastern Wisconsin. Temperatures will be coldest around 10pm this evening as a warm front will move through, touching off a few light snow showers but no accumulation is expected. Temperatures will be close to freezing overnight, warming into the mid-30s by Sunday morning.
The way Sunday is shaping up we should all be seeing the return of the sunshine, so that means the groundhogs (Gordy in Milwaukee, Sunny in Racine and Jimmy in Sun Prairie) should all see their shadows just like the rest of us in southeastern Wisconsin. And seeing the sunshine again should bring some smiles after the last 10 days of cloud cover, even if the rodent's "prediction" is for 6 more weeks of winter. It will be a warm and windy Sunday with highs in the upper 40s and a westerly wind gusting to 30mph.
The clouds will start to stream back in on Monday with the clouds keeping our temperatures in the upper 40s, which is cooler but still quite mild for early February. A large storm system moves to our south on Tuesday which will increase our snow chances into Wednesday thought this weather-makers isn't looking as impressive for us. Temperatures will be in the low 30s through the rest of the week with another chance for snow Thursday and into Friday.
