The storm system that brought most of southeastern Wisconsin wet and dreary conditions will continue to bring clouds and some light rain and drizzle this morning. There will be some foggy spots as well after most of the area caught a quarter to almost a half an inch of rain in the bucket. Temperatures will be decreasing throughout the day but so will the rain chances, drier weather is expected by the evening.
It will still be mostly cloudy on Monday with temperatures cooler, in the 30s, but still above average for December. A pulse of energy moves through on Tuesday that could spark off a few flurries in the morning hours and some light drizzle through the afternoon as highs near 40 degrees. Wednesday will be the best day of the week with partly cloudy skies and a high of 40 degrees in Milwaukee.
We're watching Thursday very carefully as a potent area of low pressure approaches from the southwest. At the moment it looks like there will be a rain/snow mix in extreme southeastern Wisconsin with a much better chance of accumulating snow the further north and west you go. Some locations could pick up 3-6" of snow as long as the low stays to our south but there are still several factors that could change the forecast drastically. You'll want to stay tuned to this changing forecast, especially because the wind will increase to make conditions worse. If this storm stays on track it could mean a white Christmas for many in southeastern Wisconsin.
