Windy with morning light snow.
A low pressure system to our north is developing a batch of snow showers across eastern and southern Wisconsin this morning. It should be ending soon across east-central Wisconsin, but may linger through around lunchtime in southeastern Wisconsin, with only a dusting to less than 1” generally expected. Things will stay cold and windy through tomorrow before the winds subside and high temperatures slowly rise through the 20s and back into the 30s after Thanksgiving. We may even get close to 40 by Saturday and Sunday, which sounds impressive until you realize that the average high for today is in the upper 30s.
