High pressure has been keeping us quiet and sunny with seasonal highs in the upper 20s. The wind is increasing from the southwest and that will actually warm our temperatures up overnight so the low of 22 degrees will be early this evening. We'll start out dry with temperatures in the mid-20s with partly sunny skies on Wednesday but the clouds will be increasing throughout the day with highs in the mid-30s. Snow moves in from the west after 4pm, making it into the Milwaukee metro area mainly after 6pm. This will be a wet snow with temperatures overnight in the upper 20s and most spots will pick up close to an inch of snow by Thursday morning.
Thursday will be cloudy with a wintry mix possible midday as temperatures hover above the freezing mark before the mix transitions back to snow Thursday night and into Friday. Areas of fog are possible with the wintry mix and some of the melting as temperatures are expected to be above freezing during the day. A near repeat forecast is expected on Friday with snow likely Friday night and into Saturday morning before the storm system exits the area. It will still be mild for the rest of the weekend with highs in the upper 30s so some melting is expected.
