Mild temperatures with a chance for freezing drizzle late

CREATED Jan 5, 2013

Cloud cover will be increasing throughout the day today as an Alberta Clipper approaches southeast Wisconsin.  That could bring some areas of light freezing drizzle into the forecast, mainly after 5pm, mixing in with some light snow.  This same system will move through Green Bay today, so a bit of freezing drizzle and flurries are possible during the game with a kickoff temperature of 23 degrees at kickoff.

Chances for freezing drizzle and flurries continue overnight and accumulation will be light but be careful on the roadways, especially in rural areas as some slick spots could develop.  A few flurries are still possible on Sunday morning but skies will clear by the afternoon and temperatures stay above average all weekend, in the low 30s.

Winds increase from the SSW on Monday, helping to kick-off slightly warmer temperatures in southeast Wisconsin for a January thaw.  Milwaukee warms to 40 degrees by Wednesday before a storm system moves in on Thursday.  Because temperatures will be ten degrees warmer than normal for January, this system looks like it will produce mainly rain Thursday and into Friday if it stays on the current track.
