Most locations in southeast Wisconsin picked up an inch or less from Friday's weak storm system that rolled through. A few flurries are still possible throughout this Saturday and maybe even a brief period of freezing drizzle but accumulation will be light. It will be cold for March with highs just grazing the freezing mark and feeling colder with a breeze at 10-15mph. Any precipitation chance ends by 5pm and then the skies start to clear as high pressure moves in. That helps drop digits overnight into the teens so it will be a chilly start to St. Patrick's Day. At least we'll see more sunshine on Sunday and lighter winds but the cold stays as highs barely reach 30 degrees. An eventual easterly wind may bring a few clouds or a flurry at the lakefront but most of us will see more of the golden orb.
Another storm system rolls in late Sunday night and brings snow throughout Monday with one to three inches expected with the heavier snow totals in the northwest. Then we are stuck in the freezer with overnight lows in the teens for much of the work week and highs below freezing until Friday. At least there won't be any more accumulating snow on those days, we just have to put up with the cold that looks to stick around through the end of the month.
