  • Snow Late Tonight, More Snow Tuesday

    The southeast Wisconsin, Waukesha and Milwaukee forecast for the rest of your Sunday night will have snow rolling in late tonight. This is another on of those weak clippers rolling on through. Right now, it looks like the further you live to the southwest, the more snow you will see out of this. The bulk of the snow will fall through the overnight with totals of 1 to 3 inches by morning. Again, the higher end of that range is going to be to the south and southwest. If we see something called "convective snowfall" some may end up with more snow than this. Because of all of this, the National Weather Service in Sullivan will put a ***Winter Weather Advisory into effect late tonight until 9AM Monday for all counties except for Fond du Lac, and Sheboygan.

  • Mainly quiet today, snow moves in tonight

    After a few morning flurries, the majority of this Sunday in southeast Wisconsin will be relatively quiet. Temperatures remain cold, in the teens, with partly cloudy skies but it will feel colder with a strong breeze from the WNW at 10-15mph.

  • A Few, Light Rounds of Snow and Flurries

    The southeast Wisconsin, Waukesha and Milwaukee forecast for the rest of your Saturday night has a little light snow or flurries in it. This is not a major snowfall. Those who see any light snow through the overnight will only see a trace to up to 1 inch. That's only if you see any snow overnight. Lows will be in the mid- to upper-single digits.

  • Cold with a couple clippers

    This Groundhog Day will start out with some lingering light snow showers and flurries after most of southeastern Wisconsin picked up one to three inches of very fluffy, sparkly and squeaky snow. This will cause some slippery conditions because the snow is so dry that when it gets compacted by vehicles it can be pretty slick. We will see more sunshine through the clouds this afternoon but it will be a cold day with highs only in the teens.

  • Look for a cold and snowy weekend ahead...

    It is the weekend of Alberta Clipper type weak low pressure systems with one moving through tonight and the other Saturday night. While temperatures warm a bit over the single digits on Friday, it still will be a chilly Ground Hog Day weekend. The light snow will accumulate between one and three inches overnight Friday and the snow on Saturday night will be closer to an inch in most locations. High temperatures both weekend days will be in the upper-teens, while single digits will be the rule for overnight temperatures. Sunshine quickly returns for Sunday but it remains a bit windy and cold.

  • Cold Friday...Weekend Light Snow

  • Frigid Friday!

    Dangerous cold has settled into Southeast Wisconsin and all of the North Central United States. Wind chill readings around the Milwaukee area are starting the day in the area of 20 degrees below zero. Brisk West breezes will continue through the day, but should finally diminish later tonight. With high pressure making a brief appearance, we'll notice plenty of sunshine, too. As winds shift around to the Southwest, we'll notice some moderation in the mercury for the weekend, though readings will remain seasonally cold near 20 degrees. Weak disturbances roll through later tonight and into Saturday and again Saturday night bringing a risk of some patchy light snow with accumulation of an inch or two with each. Sunshine quickly returns for Sunday. Stay safe and warm and have a GREAT weekend!

Temperatures will barely recover into the teens today and won't get out of the single digits tomorrow with below zero lows tonight. In addition, continued whipping winds out of the Northwest will send wind chill readings plunging to 15 below zero tonight.

The continuous moderate snowfall has ended, and the rest of the afternoon will have scattered light snow showers that will taper off by 6pm and just have flurries through the evening. Meanwhile, temperatures continue to drop and winds increase. Lows tonight will be in the single digits with wind chills around -10.

  • Sloppy Snow & Polar Plunge!

    The powerful cold front that slammed into our area last night has shifted our winds around to the Northwest ushering in another Arctic blast. This will be a day of transition as readings drop through the 20s on the way to a low in the single digits tonight. Meantime the precipitation has also made a significant transition from rain to snow. A sloppy accumulation could top out at up to 6 inches in the far North with much less accumulating in the Milwaukee-Waukesha metro areas and South. Most locations across Southeast Wisconsin will end up with 1 to 3 inches of snow when all is said and done. Bitter cold and brutal winds remain in tact through the end of the work week with highs not even reaching double digits on Friday. The roller coaster ride rolls on!

  • From sixty degrees to bitter cold and snow...

    The low pressure system that brought record warm air on Tuesday and record precipitation for that day will be dragging in very cold air on Wednesday. Rain continues tonight and will change to snow in the early morning hours and then start to accumulate. The day starts out with temperatures around thirty-three degrees but then the bottom falls out and falls through the twenties during the afternoon. Light snow will fall at times accumulating 2 to 4 inches around Milwaukee and around a half foot in our northern counties. Bitter cold follows for Wednesday night and Thursday and lingers into Friday. Another warm-up returns for the weekend with high temperatures back into the twenties.

    A new storm system is coming at us from the Southwest along with a big surge of warm air and a lot more moisture.

  • Temperatures Rise Tonight, as Freezing Precip Exits

    The southeast Wisconsin, Waukesha and Milwaukee forecast for the rest of your Sunday night has temperatures actually warming up into the upper-30's as the night wears on. There have been a few thunderstorms that have also That means any stray pocket of sleet and freezing rain will change over to a few scattered showers or patchy drizzle. This will not be a major icing event. Either way, the National Weather Service has a ***Winter Weather Advisory rolling until late tonight for the whole area.*** to account for any precipitation freezing on the ground.

  • Messy mix

    A pretty nasty storm system will work its way through southeastern Wisconsin throughout your Sunday. We still have cold air at the surface so a warm front will bring snow to start with some sleet mixing in before 2pm. As warmer air pushes in we see a change over to sleet and freezing rain mix before the evening when temperatures will be warm enough to sustain mainly rain showers. Not everyone will see an icing but many locations could get a tenth of an inch of ice coating the roads, sidewalks and driveways through the afternoon hours. The further north you go, the better chance there is of seeing one to two inches of wet snow instead of ice. Temperatures will be close to the freezing mark in response to a breezy southerly wind.
