Wintry mix, including freezing rain and snow, moves in tonight
AFTERNOON/TONIGHT: This afternoon we will continue to see cloud skies, but dry conditions. After 6pm there will be a chance of some wintry mix showers to our west and south. That chance increases exponentially into the rest of the evening hours. We will see periods of rain, freezing rain, and sleet across the southern half of the region. The northern half will see sleet and snow. Lows will be in the upper 20′s and lower 30′s, so right along the freezing point. Winds will be southeast 5-15mph. Overnight accumulations will be between a trace and 3″ for the northern half of the region. Ice accumulations for the southern half of the region could be as much as a quarter-inch, especially in Wisconsin. Power outages are a possibility, so be prepared just in case!
WEDNESDAY: Wednesday we will continue to see snow and some wintry mix across most of the region. Highs will be in the mid to lower 30′s with winds out of the north 10-15 gusting to 25mph. New snow accumulations will be between a trace and 3″ again.
THURSDAY: Thursday we will have lake effect snow continuing along the South Shore. The rest of us will have mostly cloudy skies. Highs will be in the upper 20′s and lower 30′s with northwest winds 10-20mph.
FRIDAY: High pressure will move in on Friday to bring mostly sunny skies. Highs will even be able to climb back into the upper 30′s and lower 40′s, melting some of that new snow. Winds will be out of the southwest, bringing in some more mild temperatures for the weekend.
