Overall it will be a mild close to the weekend with decreasing cloud cover to give us partly cloudy skies. A moderate breeze from the south at 10-15 mph will help temperatures climb almost 10° warmer than Saturday. Highs will hover close to 30° in southeastern Wisconsin, though it will feel closer to 20° with the wind.
Tonight a warm front moves in, bringing a chance for some light freezing drizzle mainly after midnight. Going into Martin Luther King Jr. Day, light rain, drizzle and light snow can be expected to mix in throughout the day. With the added moisture, it will be foggy at times as well, so visibilities will not be so great. Accumulation should be as the wintry mix changes over to light snow Monday night and into Tuesday. At the moment, it still looks like Milwaukee and southeastern Wisconsin will get less than two inches of snow, but we will watch this system in case it intensifies. Blowing snow may be an issue on Tuesday as well due to stronger winds from the NNW at 10-20mph.
Wednesday and Thursday look quiet and cold with highs only in the upper teens. The next chance for measurable snow will be on Thursday night and Friday as temperatures return close to freezing.
