Today: We will have another mild day, just with a little more cloud cover as skies stay partly sunny today. There may be an opportunity for some late afternoon or evening clearing. Highs today should push to the upper 30s and low 40s with a south wind at 5 to 10 mph.

Tonight: Skies will become cloudy tonight ahead of our next system. Some patchy fog will also be possible. Lows should be in the mid to upper 20s with a south wind at 5 to 10 mph.

Thursday: A wintry mix will become likely for Thursday as rain/snow will move from west to east throughout the morning commute and into the afternoon. Highs on Thursday will approach the mid and upper 30s and will be the reason for a wintry mix. Winds will be strong, in from the west northwest at 15 to 25, gusting to 35 mph. The strong winds may result in reduced visibility and blowing snow.

We should see the mix transitioning to snow throughout the afternoon and evening before a bulk of the precipitation moves out. The track of the low will be a very odd one as it halts itself and then loops backwards across Wisconsin and Minnesota. This should give us a little bit of a lull throughout Thursday evening and Thursday night with the light snow becoming isolated. Winds stay strong from the northwest with lows in the mid 20s.

Friday: A broader area of light snow will move back in throughout Friday and will not be extremely heavy for the most part, but certainly constant. Strong northwest winds at 10 to 20, gusting to 30 mph, will continue to have an impact, reducing visibility and blowing snow around. The snow will taper off Friday evening/Friday night. A trace to 2” can be expected in the south and east with 2-4” in the west and north.

Weekend: Cooler air will move in behind the system with clouds lingering for much of the weekend. Highs will be in the mid 20s with lows in the low 20s, dropping to the teens by the end of the weekend.

Next Week: Next week looks to be fairly quiet with partly to mostly cloudy skies and highs in the mid to upper 20s, lows in the low to mid teens. There will be little chances for snow on Monday night and Thursday.
