Good Friday morning!
So did we actually hit 60 degrees yesterday? I wouldn't know as I was inside watching college hoops all day.
East-central Wisconsin didn't quite make it, with the official high in Green Bay only 53 degrees, but official high temperatures in Madison and Milwaukee were 60 and 65 degrees, respectively. Don't expect a repeat performance, however, as colder air is advecting into the state from Canada, and that will keep our temperatures near-steady in the upper 30s and 40s today. We should warm up a little bit this weekend and into Monday before even colder air returns for the rest of next week. We might even get a new round of snow Tuesday night and Wednesday, so stay tuned!
Today’s Forecast Grade: B-

Next Week’s Outlook:
Conditions: Looks like the next storm arrives Tuesday night and Wednesday and we could see a rain/snow mix. If the precip falls as mostly snow, there's a good possibility you'll be shoveling on Wednesday, so you can look forward to that.
High Temperatures: In the 50s on Monday, then dropping to the upper 30s to lower 40s for the rest of the week. Sorry!
