It is day 10 of the arctic outbreak and this past weekend was the worst yet. Most of us never got above 0 on Sunday and this morning we woke up to -4 in Milwaukee, -10 in Waukesha and -20 in Fond du Lac. Rhinelander was -33 with a wind chill of -50. The cold is staying for a few more days and now we have to deal with more snow. Thursday night had 2" of snow, Saturday 2-3" and now we are looking at 2-8" along the lakefront tonight. A huge winter storm passing to our south would have dropped 1-2" for most of us as it tracked south, but the NE wind will cause lake effect into Tuesday morning. Sheboygan is under a Winter Weather Advisory until noon Tuesday. Sheboygan will get 2" of snow and Milwaukee 3-5" of snow. Milwaukee, Racine and Kenosha counties are under a Winter Storm Warning until noon Tuesday with 5-8" of snow. Inland areas will have 1-2" and some areas well west will see no snow.
Lows tonight will be 6 in Milwaukee to -5 inland with wind chills to -15. The lake effect snow tapers off before noon and highs will be in the teens. A slow warming trend begins on Wednesday with a high of 22 and Thursday is 25. We could see less than 1" of snow Thursday night. Friday and Saturday are near 20 and then we really warm-up on Sunday with a high of 33 - yes above freezing. However, we are tracking more snow for Sunday ...stay tuned.
