Milwaukee (CBS 58)--We got a taste of what we'll be seeing Thursday morning. More ice on the way. Freezing rain and sleet possible just like we saw into Wednesday morning. Although it looks like a little milder air will surge into the region, switching any ice over to rain by the afternoon of Thursday. Colder air quickly takes over into the night time hours, bringing another blast of Arctic air in time for Friday.
The next Winter Weather Advisory kicks in Wednesday evening and lasts until 6 am Thursday. Across the metro, it begins at 9 pm but starts at 6 pm in outlying areas.
As it stands now, the ice amounts don't look that impressive but watch the roads and sidewalks nonetheless. Out of the deal we could even see a few tenths of an inch of snow but much more well north.
We have two chances for accumulating snow. This Sunday and then next Tuesday. Keep it tuned to the CBS 58 Ready Weather team for updated information.
