Storm Team Forecast: Quiet day in store
Get ready for a beautiful February day in southeast Wisconsin with partly to mostly sunny skies, light winds and temperatures climbing just above freezing. High pressure slides eastward tonight, but skies will remain mostly clear to partly cloudy and as temperatures drop into the teens with light winds, some patchy fog or even freezing fog is possible. The cloud cover starts to increase on Monday ahead of our next weather-maker but it will still be a mild and dry day.
Tuesday will be windy with a strong easterly wind at 15-25mph as an area low pressure slides to our south. With temperatures above freezing there is a slight chance for a brief period of rain before changing to snow during the late afternoon hours. This system looks to have a sharp cut-off as far as snow accumulation is concerned and many in the northwest won't see much. The further south and east you go, the better chance you have to see two to four inches of heavy, wet snow. We could pick up more than that into Wednesday morning if this low tracks a bit further north but keep in mind, these are quite preliminary totals as things could still change a lot before Tuesday afternoon.
Lighter chances for accumulating snow occur off and on from Wednesday through Friday, though it won't be snowing that entire time.
