and last updated 2022-02-16 23:09:59-05

It was a dreary, gusty and mild day with highs in the 40s and 50s. Milwaukee hit 53 which was just a few shy of the record 56 from 1921. The reason for the warmth was from SW winds gusting to 40 mph overnight and all day. Drizzle and light rain developed by early afternoon ahead of the cold front that is now dropping temps into the 30s later this evening. The light rain will change to a wintry mix with little to no accumulation by morning. It will be noticeably colder in the morning with temps in the teens to lower 20s, and wind chills near 10. Thursday stays cloudy and windy with highs staying near 20 and wind chills in the single digits. The storm is staying south of us once again, but we will see some very light snow in the afternoon and evening with just a dusting north of Milwaukee, less than 1" in Milwaukee and maybe 2" along the state line. Central Illinois and Indiana could see a foot, and Chicago about 8". If you have travel plans to the south, wait a day.

Friday morning is in the single digits and very windy all day with gusts to 40 mph. High temps will stay in the upper 20s with wind chills near 20. Clouds increase late in the day with flurries by evening. Saturday is sunny, breezy and chilly with highs in the 20s and wind chills in the teens. A warm front arrives Saturday night with strong south winds warming us into the mid to upper 40s on Sunday.
