It will actually look and feel like January for the weekend with colder temperatures and even some flurries possible this morning. Expect high temperatures to actually be colder than average, only 21° in Milwaukee with mostly cloudy skies. A warm front will pass through this evening, bringing a slight chance for some light snow before midnight, though not much accumulation is expected. Clouds will then decrease overnight, allowing temperatures to drop into the low teens by Sunday morning.
In the wake of the warm front, temperatures will bounce back up into the low 30s for Sunday. Under partly cloudy skies, it will be the better day out of the weekend despite a stronger breeze from the south at 10-15 mph.
Martin Luther King Jr. Day temperatures will start out cold enough for some light snow, but warming up to 38° by the afternoon some rain will mix in with the snow. Eventually by Monday evening it will change back over to snow and light snow showers will stick around for Tuesday as well. Accumulation should be less than two inches total for both days, but we'll be watching this system for changes. Temperatures plummet again by the time we get to Wednesday and Thursday with only teens for highs. There will be a few weak waves of snow passing throughout the week, but nothing major at the moment.
