Today was another pleasant January day with sunshine and highs near 40. The only issue was a west wind gusting to 30 mph. Clouds increased by late afternoon ahead of a cold front, and you will see some flurries this evening. Temperatures drop quickly tonight behind the front, and a strong NW wind will make it very cold in the morning.
Milwaukee will be near 10 and inland areas in the single digits with wind chills of 0 to -10. Wednesday is sunny and cold with highs near 20. At least the wind becomes light by afternoon. Clouds will increase late in the day with a few flurries once again.
The cold is just cold for 1 day as a warm front makes the temps rise Wednesday night and we get back into the mid 40s on Thursday. The morning could see a little wintry mix, but rain is likely throughout the day with winds gusting to 35 mph. It will be warm, but it will not be a nice day.
Friday morning has a slight chance for lingering light rain/snow with highs in the upper 30s. Snow is expected by Friday evening, and it looks to be snowy Friday night and Saturday. We will have shovel by Saturday afternoon, and it will be windy as well with gusts to 35 mph. Saturday is our first true taste of winter. Sunday is much nicer with some sun, a light breeze and highs near freezing.
