Merry Christmas Eve everyone. While we have had flurries and very light snow at times today, we will not have a White Christmas for the 3rd year in a row. Despite the lack of snow, it is cold. We went from a record 58 yesterday afternoon to temps in the teens this morning and wind chills below 0. The wind gusts were over 40 mph last night and have been around 30 mph all day keeping wind chills near 0 with highs in the teens. Tonight remains breezy, cold and cloudy with lows near 10 in Milwaukee to single digits inland. Wind chills will be 0 to -10 overnight...coldest being inland. We will also have a few light snow showers and flurries with a dusting of snow at best.
Christmas morning is cold but at least it is sunny. We warm up to 22 with a brisk breeze, wind chills in the single digits and a chance for afternoon flurries. Saturday is very nice with sun, a light breeze and highs near 32. Sunday is 38 and cloudy with snow showers moving in by sunset. We could see about 1" of snow by Monday morning. Monday is windy and cold with highs in the 20s and winds gusting to 30 mph. We are watching another storm system for late Tuesday and Wednesday. It will start as snow Tuesday night and then change to a wintry mix on Wednesday. If we stay cold enough, this could be the first significant snowfall...stay tuned.
