Parts of North Dakota picked up more than 30 inches of snow and that same system is bringing us cold, wind and a chance for rain later this evening with some snowflakes mixing in mainly north of I-94. No snow accumulation is expected and rainfall amounts should be under a tenth of an inch. Mostly cloudy skies and a breezy southwest wind gusting to 30mph will keep temperatures close to this morning's lows in the mid-30s.
Sunday won't look as nice with more clouds and a chance for some light rain by the afternoon hours, again less than a tenth of an inch is expected. Highs will be stuck in the mid-40s, feeling colder with the clouds, damp sprinkles and the breezy wind. Monday improves a bit with the sunshine returning at least, the wind will be breezy at 10 mph with a high of 50 degrees in Milwaukee.
A warm front pushes in late Monday night and into Tuesday to bring rain back to the forecast with cloudy skies and highs in the mid-50s for Tuesday but this doesn't look to be a washout or a big rain-maker at this point. We dry out Wednesday and Thursday with highs climbing from close to 50 degrees on Wednesday to a breezy 56 on Thursday with more sunshine expected. A more impressive warm front arrives on Friday to bring rain, wind and 60s as we get closer to next weekend.
