Wednesday will be mostly cloudy and mild with highs near 49 as the big storm system approaches form the southwest.  It's that mild weather that makes this forecast still tricky for Milwaukee and areas south.  Wednesday night will be a rain snow mix with 1-3" of accumulation west of Waukesha and north, with little to no accumulation for Milwaukee and areas south...that area will see  a lot of rain.  The rain continues into late morning on Thursday for Milwaukee and south with highs near 40.  Meanwhile, area sto the north will have heavy snow with an additional 4-9" of snow...the heaviest will be Dodge, Fond du lac and Sheboygan counties with total accumulations approaching 8-12".  The rain will change to snow in Milwaukee and areas south with 1-3" of snow Thursday afternoon and very gusty winds.  All of SE Wisconsin, except Milwaukee, Racine and Kenosha are under a Winter Storm Watch for Wednesday night and Thursday.
