The bitterly cold air starts to loosen it's grasp on southeast Wisconsin as high temperatures return to the teens today. The winds will not be as strong, so that will greatly improve what it feels like stepping out the door. A very weak disturbance moves through today, bringing us more cloud cover and a few flurries are possible midday as well. The best chance to see a light dusting will be in Walworth, Kenosha and Racine counties today. We still are in the single digits overnight tonight and with a slightly breezy NNW wind, it will feel like zero to -15 degrees.
We bounce back into the 20s for Thursday and Friday with light snow possible Thursday night and into Friday morning. Most locations should see near one of light snow, but some locations in the northeast could see two inches by Friday afternoon. Saturday will be quiet and seasonably cool with highs in the low 20s before another weather maker moves in on Sunday. That bumps temperatures up to 30 degrees but adds a chance for more light snow, some rain could mix in with the snow on Monday.
