It was a nice last day of January with sunshine and temps in the 30s, but clouds have increased late today along with a southerly wind. That wind will gust over 30 mph tonight and keep our lows near 30 thanks to a warm front, and Tuesday will be in the low to mid 40s to start February. It will be mostly cloudy with gusty west winds, and the cold front arrives by late afternoon with temps dropping into the 20s by evening. Overnight lows will drop into the teens with wind chills in the single digits.
Snow lovers will be disappointed yet again as a powerful storm system tracks to our south. Illinois will get 6-10" of snow while areas south of Milwaukee might get 1-2". NE winds will gust to 30 mph Wednesday evening and Thursday, and that could create some lake effect snow showers. Otherwise it is cold with highs struggling to get out of the teens and lows in the single digits. The wind dies down on Friday and it is sunny, but highs are near 20. The weekend looks nice with some sun and highs in the mid 20s on Saturday to 30 on Sunday.
