A NNE wind will bring a few clouds to lakefront communities in southeast Wisconsin this morning and a stray chance for a few spotty flurries and sprinkles through midday. By the end of the day however, many locations will be looking at mostly sunny skies. It will be another cold day, with highs still roughly ten degrees cooler than average.
It will again be chilly overnight with clear skies and temperatures dipping into the 20s inland and low 30s along Lake Michigan. Winds will start to increase and it will be a breezy and cold start to the work with despite the sunshine.
Tuesday will be a blustery day and with winds gusting to 35mph, it will feel even colder than the thermometer reads. As Hurricane Sandy continues to push westward, a mix of rain and snow is possible in the east overnight Tuesday with a few scattered showers still possible into Wednesday. This is just a slight chance of what could happen depending on Sandy's track.
Drier and slightly warmer air returns to the forecast by Thursday with mostly sunny skies expected by the end of the day with highs in the low 50s.
