The lake effect snow machine finally shut off this afternoon after dropping 17.3" in Wind Point, 17" in Racine, 13" Kenosha and 10" in Milwaukee. Inland areas got 1-4" of fluffy snow. The sun finally came out and highs got into the low 20s for the first time in 11 days.
Tonight is partly cloudy and cold with lows in the single digits in Milwaukee to -7 inland. The good news is that the wind is light so the wind chill won't make it feel any worse. Plus this is the last cold night of this arctic blast. We start Wednesday with sun, but clouds increase by afternoon with highs in the lower 20s. Flurries and light snow will move in after sunset with a dusting to a half-inch of accumulation. Snow is the last word people want to hear but it will be light tomorrow night.
Thursday is partly cloudy with highs in the mid 20s with a light breeze - it will feel nice! Friday and Saturday are sunny with highs in the upper teens and lower 20s before a bigger warm-up moves in for Sunday. Highs will be around freezing and it will be windy. We are also tracking a significant storm for Sunday with wet snow and possibly rain mixing in...stay tuned.
