Light Evening Snow, then a Weekend Warm Up!

Temperatures for your Wednesday will hover close to average, near 30° but there is a nice warm up on the way!

First though, there is some light snow in the forecast this evening. An Alberta Clipper will dive southeast into the Midwest today, tracking through Minnesota and northern Wisconsin. The greatest snow accumulation will stay closely tied to the low in northern Wisconsin, but an accompanying wave of energy will help to bring enough lift over the Stateline to squeeze out some light snow and flurries.

The area with the greatest potential to see some accumulation will be in far northeastern portions of the Stateline. Overall, only a dusting to a tenth or two of an inch is expected, it could be just enough to bring some slick spots on roads Thursday morning.

A ridge will then build into the central portions of the U.S. and this allows temperatures to climb a little more each day. The warmest days this week look to fall on the weekend, with highs Saturday and Sunday reaching the lower 40's.

Another quick system will move out of the Rockies and into central Wisconsin and will bring with it a chance for lighter rain with the system's cold front. Because the bulk of the energy passes north, that is where a little more moderate rain will fall. Rain looks to then transition to a light mix overnight as temperatures fall below freezing. Monday then looks to be colder with a cold front passing, allowing temperatures to fall into the mid 30's.
