Thursday morning: messy commute for our northern areas
A disturbance and strong cold front will slam into the area late tonight and tomorrow morning pulling in enough moisture to generate a dusting to 0.5” of snowfall.North of the metro have the best chance to see any of the fresh powder, especially in Fond du Lac, Sheboygan, Dodge, and northern parts of Washington and Ozaukee counties.
Once the cold front moves through, the winds turn and the temperatures will drop. Highs will likely only reach into the mid-30s, the coldest air of the season. Wind chills will fall into the teens and single digits by the evening tomorrow setting up the coldest night during this span. Overnight lows will plunge into the teens, and the northern part of the state could see single digits.
A tricky forecast is expected for this weekend as models continue to show uncertainties will the next low pressure system. Some models are showing rain/mix while others are going with all snow. At this time, it looks like some snow will be possible over the weekend.
