Good Friday morning!
What's the deal with this storm coming Sunday night?
Well yeah, wouldn't you know it, we're in line for another storm. Many of us are going to get fruit cocktail out of this storm - a little bit of everything, including snow, sleet, freezing rain, and rain - although the further southeast you live in Wisconsin puts you in line for an extra helping. It's a quick-mover and looks to arrive late in the day on Sunday, then be out of here already by early Monday morning. Check out the graph below, provided by the National Weather Service, which helps to show what you may be seeing Sunday night. If you're traveling anywhere Sunday evening, check out a radar image before you leave, okay?
Today’s Forecast Grade: B-

Sunday: Cloudy during the day with increasing winds later in the day. Warmer with highs in the mid- 30s.
Sunday Night: If I'm putting a Sunday Night line in my forecast, you know something's up. Windy with rain, sleet, freezing rain, and/or snow likely. Precipitation will likely be heaviest in southeastern Wisconsin with lesser amounts the further west or north you live. The final rain/snow line is to be determined but keep an eye on this if you're traveling anywhere Sunday evening. Lows in the mid- 20s.
Next Week’s Outlook:
Conditions: Sunday night's storm system is a quick-mover and should be out of Wisconsin by Monday morning. The next storm system doesn't look to arrive until next Thursday and Friday, and temperatures will probably be warm enough for all of that to fall as rain. If the storm even validates in later weather model runs, that is.
High Temperatures: In the 30s for the first half of the week, but we may approach 40 by Thursday.
Extended Forecast Confidence: Medium
