The southeast Wisconsin, Waukesha and Milwaukee forecast for the rest of your Sunday night will be quiet with increasing clouds. Overnight lows will bottom out in the mid-teens for our lakefront communities and Milwaukee temperatures and low-teens for Waukesha's temperature and inland areas.
Monday looks fairly quiet with mostly cloudy skies though we could see a few flurries or a snow shower in the afternoon. Highs will top out in the low-30's.
The ***Winter Storm Watch*** goes into effect late Monday night through Tuesday night at 10PM. As far as some of the latest model data, things start ramping up overnight going into early Tuesday morning. It looks like we should have up to an inch on the ground by the early morning Tuesday.
There will be a strong area of low pressure passing to our southwest during Tuesday. This is going to bring a heavy swath of snow across parts of the Midwest, and as of the latest data, we are getting in on some of this. Right now, it looks like we're going to see 4 to 6 inches of snow by the end of the day. Not only that, some of that may be blowing around a bit with some gusty winds.
The snow will gradually diminish as Tuesday evening rolls along. We could see another trace to an inch. That will bring the storm totals between 4 and 8 inches with the higher totals farther to the south and southwest or anyone who gets Lake Michigan involved.
We've got a long way to go, and if this system tracks further to the north, that means more snow for us.
Wednesday could see a flurry or snow shower, but should be fairly quiet with highs in the mid-30's.
