Dense Fog before a bitter blast
DENSE FOG ADVISORY FOR ALL OF SE WISCONSIN UNTIL 8PM
The forecast for Milwaukee, Waukesha and SE Wisconsin is for more dense fog, drizzle and mild conditions with highs in the upper 40s. There will also be a few spotty light rain showers throughout the day.
The cold front arrives late tonight, and temperatures will drop into the 20s with winds gusting over 20 mph. We could see a few snowflakes mixing in with the light rain tonight with little to no accumulation.
Thursday is mostly cloudy, windy and cold with highs in the upper 20s in the morning, and then temperatures drop into the lower 20s by afternoon. Wind chills will be in the teens.
Thursday night is cold with lows near 10, and wind chills between -5 and 5.
Friday has a few clouds and is very cold with highs near 20, and wind chills near 0.
Saturday is sunny, but frigid with highs only in the teens and morning lows in the single digits and wind chills as cold as -10.
Sunday has increasing clouds and highs in the mid 20s, but snow showers move in during the day, and continue into Monday morning. It looks like we will have to shovel some snow to start the week.
The arctic air has arrived and temperatures are going down fast across the state. After a high temperature of around fifty degrees in Milwaukee on Wednesday look for high temperatures to stay in the twenties today. Maximum temperatures will stay in the teens and twenties through the weekend and most of next week.
There are two records on the calendar today for Milwaukee. The first is the record for the latest occurrence of the first trace of snow for the colder season in Milwaukee which occurred in 1999. The average date of the first trace of snow is the 28th of October, and the earliest date for the first trace of snow is September 20th.
The second record is the date of the warmest temperature for the month of December which was sixty-eight degrees set back in 2001. Temperatures rarely get above sixty-five degrees during this month, but record warmest monthly temperatures for the winter months have been going up during the past twenty years. The warmest temperature for the month of January hit sixty-three degrees on January 7th back in 2008. That was also the day tornadoes hit Walworth and Kenosha counties doing extensive damage in Wheatland. The warmest temperature on record for February was set on the 11th in1999 when the thermometer soared to sixty-eight degrees.
