Tuesday's winter storm brought a swath of snow with a sharp cut-off through southeastern Wisconsin: from 7.7" in Lake Geneva to 2.0" in Fond du Lac as the worst of the storm passed just to our south. Milwaukee saw 4.3" while people in Madison and northern Illinois saw 9-11" but behind this snowy system we're just looking at a few flurries this morning. We may even see some breaks in the clouds the further west you go as high pressure slides in. Highs stay cool for March, in the low 30s but it will feel colder with a breezy north wind.
Skies start to clear a bit tonight and lows along Lake Michigan will be seasonal, in the 20s, but inland temperatures drop into the teens. Thursday and Friday we will see more sunshine and highs will warm up into the upper 30s by Friday.
Low 40s are expected for the weekend but another storm system moves in Saturday evening. Since temperatures will be warm enough, much of the precipitation looks to fall as rain Saturday night and into Sunday and we could see some rain totals over a half an inch. Colder air wraps back in as we go into Monday so there will be a change back over to snow by the end of the day.
