Sometimes, it’s all about the warmth. That’s the case this weekend for many throughout the upper Midwest. The same area of high pressure that brought the bitterly cold temperatures earlier in the week is now to the south and east, sending a warm southwest wind into Southern Wisconsin.

We’ll begin the weekend partly sunny and milder with high temperatures in the lower 40s. Some patchy fog is possible tonight. On Sunday, partly sunny skies in the morning will become mostly cloudy in the afternoon. It will be mild with high temperatures in the lower 40s.

The chances for snow will return for next week as a storm system, or a couple of weather systems impact southern Wisconsin.  Monday will be mostly cloudy with light snow developing at night. High temperatures will be in the upper 30s. Tuesday will be mostly cloudy with light snow possible; high temperatures will be in the middle 30s. Wednesday will be mostly cloudy, windy, and colder with occasional light snow; high temperatures will be right around 30. Some snow accumulation is likely, especially from Tuesday night into Wednesday.

Cold weather will continue through the end of next week. Thursday will be variably cloudy, breezy and colder with a chance of flurries; high temperatures will be in the middle 20s. Friday will be mostly sunny and cold; high temperatures will be in the middle 20s.
