Today's Outlook

Warmer air through Thursday

Temperatures will be going back up into the mid to upper-thirties across southeast Wisconsin Wednesday and Thursday as another low pressure system arrives from the northwest. We could see a period of light freezing rain or sleet Wednesday night in Milwaukee and a wintry mix on Thursday. Whether we experience light snow or sleet Thursday it will be very light with any accumulations under a half inch. Temperatures start to tumble by the weekend with high temperatures in the twenties and light snow Saturday night. Temperatures drop even further early next week with high temperatures back into the teens.
 
Wednesday marks the anniversary of the beginning of what has been considered the worst snowstorm to strike the City of Milwaukee. The storm didn’t record the most snowfall for one winter storm system but the combination of blizzard winds, long duration and historical time period kept the city paralyzed for days. The storm began on January 28th, although many felt that total snowfall was much greater, just hard to determine due to the strong winds. During the height of the storm sustained winds were between 25 and 45 miles per hour and gusting to more than 50 miles per hour.
 
Stores, factories, offices and schools were closed for up to four days with traffic at a standstill until the beginning of February of 1947 and ended on the 30th, dropping eighteen inches of snow on the city.
