Quite cold to start the week

NOW: Quite cold to start the week

It definitely felt more like December across southeast Wisconsin today. Temperatures started the day in the teens away from the lake and 20s lakeside and didn't even rise above freezing this afternoon. In fact, most spots away from the lake didn't get out of the 20s!

Today was the first time since March 21st that Milwaukee didn't rise above freezing, and we likely won't warm above freezing the next two days either. 

Highs across most of the area will be in the mid to upper 20s on Monday, but Milwaukee will could make a run at 30 as skies turn mostly sunny. By Wednesday temperatures warm back into the mid 30s and rise into the upper 30s to low 40s by the end of the week. 

Although we were chilly today, we didn't have much wind to make it feel colder. That won't be the case on Monday. A cold front will move through tonight, which will turn winds to the NW and bring in gusts up to 20 mph after midnight through most of the day on Monday. With temperatures expected to be in the 20s to start the day Monday, wind chills will be in the single digits to around 10 degrees.

Wind chills will only improve to the low to mid teens Monday afternoon, but thankfully winds calm down on Tuesday. Mainly dry weather is expected this week, but another system could impact the area by the start of next weekend.
