Today's Outlook

Calm and cold night

The colder air has moved in after much of southeastern Wisconsin saw 2-5" of snow on Monday.  It doesn't feel brutally cold if you catch a peek of sunshine since the wind is relatively light even with highs in the 20s.  Overnight the clouds will see a few more gaps and the wind will stay light, allowing temperatures to drop to 20 degrees in Milwaukee and 15 in Waukesha and away from Lake Michigan.
Wednesday will be a bit warmer with partly to mostly cloudy skies and a light wind.  With the warmer, more moist air some flurries and light snow showers will move in after midnight and continue into Thanksgiving morning.  A light dusting to a half an inch of fluffy snow is expected to coat the ground with a few festive flurries expected off and on throughout Thanksgiving Day though this shouldn't create too many problems on the road to grandma's house.  High temperatures will be colder, in the mid-20s, but feel a bit cooler with a brisk NW wind at 10-15mph.
Cold temperatures will accompany Black Friday shoppers during the overnight hours, with lows dipping to 15 degrees by sunrise.  A breezy wind, mostly cloudy skies and light snow showers will make driving from store to store a bit more difficult but highs will be close to the freezing mark so salt should be effective on the roadways.
Saturday will be warmer with a high of 40 degrees in Milwaukee but the wind and mostly cloudy to partly cloudy skies will make it not quite perfect.  A bit more sunshine but less mercury can be expected for Sunday with highs in the mid-30s.  Monday will be similar before rain moves in by Tuesday with high temperatures expected to be warmer for the first week of December than than have been through much of November.
The remainder of this holiday week will be cold with high temperatures mainly in the mid-twenties to lower-thirties for southeast Wisconsin. Travel weather for Wednesday should be great with partly to mostly cloudy skies and cold temperatures, but no storms to deal with across the state. The high temperature Wednesday in Milwaukee will get back into the lower-thirties and winds will be light, and then look for very light snow to move in tonight. A dusting to a half inch of new snow will be on the ground by Thanksgiving morning.

If you are traveling around the Midwest for the Thanksgiving holiday the weather should cooperate in most locations. The light snow scheduled for tonight in Milwaukee will bring an inch of two of new snow to northern Illinois if your plans take you to Chicago tonight and tomorrow morning. If you are going to Minnesota there will be some snow to contend with at times starting Wednesday and running right through Friday before a dry weekend. An inch or two of snow is possible each day through Friday around the Twin Cities. The Iowa forecast looks sloppy today but gets warmer and drier through the weekend.

Most of our state should be fine through the weekend with only a few episodes of very light snow through Friday.
