Today's Outlook

Festive flakes moving in late

 A few snowflakes and flurries move in mainly after midnight tonight and will exit before noon on Thanksgiving to give us a fresh dusting of snow, accumulations will stay below a half an inch and no major headaches are expected on the road due to the weather.  After the flakes exit on Thanksgiving morning it will be a cold day with highs only in the low to mid-20s and an increasing wind will make it feel colder so bundle up going to grandma's.
Black Friday begins on a chilly note with morning lows in the teens and a brisk wind will drop wind chill values into the single digits.  Then mostly cloudy skies are expected to bring some light snow showers that will generally accumulate to a dusting and close to a half inch up in the northern counties.
The weekend looks much better despite breezy winds as partly cloudy skies and highs bounce back up to 42 degrees for Saturday, which is normal for the end of November in Milwaukee.  This will make conditions the best they have been in awhile to get some outdoor work done and even a good day to put up the Christmas lights if you were waiting until after Thanksgiving to do so.  Sunday will be cooler with highs in the upper 30s, a brisk wind and partly cloudy skies.
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone from all of us in the Storm Team 4 Weather Center. Thanksgiving is one of those holidays that falls at the end of autumn and the beginning of the winter season, and therefore we have experienced everything on this holiday from snow and sleet to rain, storms and mild temperatures in the middle sixties. Over the past ten years this holiday in Milwaukee has been relatively uneventful, with flurries or snow showers on three days and light rain on four days. The warmest over the past ten years was sixty-three degrees in 2012 and coldest was twenty-nine degrees last year, and we will be a little colder than that Thursday.
The warmest temperature in Milwaukee over the past one hundred and thirty years of data was sixty-five degrees set back in 1914, while the coldest morning low temperature was four degrees below zero back in 1950. The coldest Thanksgiving overall occurred back in 1872 when the high temperature was only twelve degrees with a morning low temperature of two degrees below zero.
The greatest precipitation on Thanksgiving Day was just under an inch back in 1968, while the largest snowfall was 3.5 inches recorded in 1947. While we have two inches of snow cover today, the greatest snow depth was seven inches in 1989.
