Today's Outlook

Freezing Rain Advisory Tonight

Enjoy the lighter wind and sunshine as much as you can before the sun sets on this Friday because both are missing from the weekend forecast.  A warm front moves in tonight to bring a period of freezing drizzle, freezing rain and even some sleet after 1am tonight and into Saturday morning.  This will create some slick spots and tricky travel conditions so a Freezing Rain Advisory goes into effect tonight through 10am for all counties in southeastern Wisconsin.  As the temperature rises above freezing on Saturday morning the precipitation will change all over to pure rain showers and melt away any icy spots by midday.  It will be breezy and warmer thanks to a southwesterly wind bringing back temperatures in the low 40s, which is normal for November.

 
Sunday will be cloudy with some fog from the melted snow cover and additional rain showers are expected, especially by the evening hours when it may become heavy at times.  Rain totals will be between a half an inch and an inch, which would have created quite the winter storm for us if the temperatures were colder, however highs on Sunday will be close to 50 degrees even if it doesn't feel like it.
 
A cold front moves through Sunday night and into Monday to change any rain shower over to a snow shower and pull the cold air back into southeastern Wisconsin.  Little to no snow accumulation is expected but it will be colder and windy with highs back in the 30s.  Temperatures hover quite close to the freezing mark for the duration of the holiday week with no major weather-makers anticipated to create travel troubles for Thanksgiving though a few flurries will fly on Wednesday and Thursday.
 
Warmer air rolls in for the weekend as a storm system moves toward Wisconsin from the south. A storm from that direction is encouraging since we have experienced Alberta Clipper type systems over the past month, and those come from the northwest. You can expect some rain this weekend after a bit of freezing drizzle and sleet very early Saturday morning, with temperatures back in the forties. Colder air will return for Thanksgiving week.

Friday’s high temperature soared to thirty-two degrees and ended the stretch of temperatures below freezing for Milwaukee at nine days. The record for consecutive days below freezing for November in Milwaukee was ten days set back in 1880, but we are still in the top three coldest stretches for November. The average monthly temperature is sitting at eight degrees below normal, with a current temperature of 33.4 degrees. If the month ended today, this November would be in the top twenty coldest Novembers on record based upon average monthly temperatures. The average monthly temperature will probably drop another degree at least before the end of the month and that would take this month into the top ten coldest on record.

Friday was the anniversary of the earliest below zero temperature on record for Milwaukee, so the coldest time of the year has arrived.
