Partly sunny skies and light winds this afternoon will allow highs to climb into the mid 20s. Tonight will be partly cloudy and not as cold with low temperatures in the upper teens.
A large winter storm will approach on Saturday, leading to increasing clouds and milder highs in the lower 30s. The current track of the storm stays just to the south of Wisconsin, but that will be close enough for snow to develop across the area Saturday night as conditions become windy and lows drop into the upper teens. Show showers will continue on Sunday and conditions will remain windy. Total accumulations of 2-5" are possible with this system. Highs Sunday will be near 20 early, then temperatures will hold steady or fall into the teens in the afternoon.
By Monday, very cold weather will return to Wisconsin. Skies will be partly sunny, but it will be quite cold. Wind chills may be as cold as -5 to -15 early Monday morning with low temperatures starting around zero. High temperatures will only make it to the middle teens.
Several fast moving clipper systems will then move through the area Monday night and Tuesday afternoon, bringing light snow and slightly warmer temperatures. Highs Tuesday will be in the mid 20s. There will still be a chance of snow showers Wednesday, and it will become windy and cold with highs in the upper teens and temperatures falling in the afternoon.
Thursday will be mostly sunny, but bitterly cold with lows in the single digits below zero and highs near 10. Wind chills will be as cold as -20 Thursday morning. Friday will be partly sunny and not as cold with highs reaching the lower 20s. Saturday will be breezy and milder with highs jumping into the lower 30s and a chance of snow late in the day.
