  • "Double-barreled" low pressure off to our west will merge over Southeast Wisconsin drawing more moisture into the region by this afternoon.

  • An associated cold front will help to kick off rain showers ahead of its passage with strong southerly breezes boosting temperatures well above average into the 40s.

  • The frigid air behind the front is impressive and will pour in overnight helping to change the rain to snow as we go through the night. Blustery northwest winds gusting to 40 miles per hour tomorrow will cap our temperatures at a much colder 20 degrees.

  • Some lingering snow showers are likely, though no significant accumulation is expected. It may be a different story late in the week when there could be some accumulating snow Thursday into Friday.
