Cold air returns this week...a chance for flurries
The pattern is really set to change this week. A switch to traditional fall temperatures are set to return after one of the warmest Octobers on record. A cold front will arrive late in the day on Tuesday with colder air arriving from the northwest.
Most of the rain will be done by the time the cold air comes in. Most areas will pick up 0.25" to 0.50" of rain by Tuesday night. A wind advisory is also in effect for Tuesday. Wind gusts between 30 and 40 mph are possible.
Now there's been some talk about snow this week, and that's true, there could be a a mix of some rain and flurries with a disturbance coming through on Wednesday. No measurable snow is expected!
Milwaukee doesn't pick up a lot of snowfall for the month. Traditionally we see 0.3" of snow. Take a look back on the list. These are the top 5 snowiest Octobers on record for Milwaukee.
