An Alert Day is in the forecast for Sunday for 1-4 inches of accumulating snow. Light snow should begin after midnight across southern Wisconsin and wrap up by Sunday evening. The heaviest amounts will fall across far southwestern and far southeastern portions of the state. Travel impacts should remain minor with this system, but there still could be some slippery spots and times of reduced visibility on the roads.
Tonight will be partly cloudy and very cold again with low temperatures just above zero. However, with light winds expected, wind chills should not be a major factor.
Saturday will be partly sunny and not quite as cold with high temperatures in the middle 20s. It will be mostly cloudy from Saturday night into Sunday as a weather system passes south of Wisconsin. Light snow from late Saturday night through Sunday may accumulate one to four inches, with the heaviest amounts falling across southwestern Wisconsin and across the far southeastern tip of the state. It won't be as cold on Sunday with high temperatures in the upper 20s.
Monday and Tuesday will be variably cloudy and a little colder; high temperatures will be in the lower to middle 20s. High temperatures will stay in the middle 20s for Tuesday with partly sunny skies. Another weather system passing south of Wisconsin will bring light snow back to the area late Tuesday night. Skies will be mostly cloudy skies on Wednesday with snow continuing; minor accumulations will be possible again. High temperatures on Wednesday will be in the middle 20s.
Temperatures will moderate later next week, getting back closer to normal. Thursday will be partly sunny and not quite as cold with high temperatures in the lower 30s. Temperatures on Friday will be quite sesaonable. Highs will finish around the freezing mark under partly sunny skies.
Snow chances will linger into the first part of next weekend. Saturday will be mostly cloudy with a chance of snow showers or flurries; high temperatures will be in the lower 30s. Snow becomes likely by Saturday night. Any snow will taper to flurries on Sunday, with some accumulation possible. It will be breezy with highs near 30.
Next Monday will be partly sunny and seasonably cold. Skies will become mostly cloudy by Monday night ahead of our next round of snow as the breeze picks up.
