Thursday Weather Update: A temperature thaw with a little snow
Milwaukee (CBS 58)--What a week weatherwise! First a big snow. Then the big chill. Now we get a warmup with a little snow. First things first, we broke a record Thursday morning with overnight lows at -20 in Milwaukee. The old record was -15 set back in 1899. After wind chill readings around -40 during the morning hours, it should start to get better by later in the day. In fact temperatures will climb to near zero into tonight with wind chill numbers near -10.
Then we focus on a little snow arriving Thursday evening into early Friday. Some of us could see more than an inch, especially toward the Illinois border. Watch the roads.
For the weekend, expect a major warmup is coming. We're talking highs in the 30s and 40s for the weekend. We could see a little wintry mix later Saturday afternoon into the evening. Then the rain chances increase into Monday. After this week, I hope the Groundhog doesn't see his shadow on Saturday. Bring on spring sooner!
