Today’s forecast grade: A

Now: At 7am with clouds covering most of the eastern two-thirds of Wisconsin, along with isolated rain showers and windy conditions, temperatures are already near 40! That's crazy talk!

Synopsis: Ahead of a new area of low pressure to our northwest and its draping cold front, we have strong, mild, southerly winds, which will make it unseasonably warm today, with some areas in Wisconsin getting close to 50! Don't get used to it because behind the cold front are, well, colder temperatures, but still above normal for this time of the year.

Today: Partly sunny, windy and very mild. High of 47 central, getting close to 50 south!

Tonight: Partly cloudy, lows near 30.

Saturday: Becoming cloudy, breezy and a little colder with rain developing. Sure, the one time we get a nice big blob of precipitation in January and it's going to be almost all rain. Such is the snowmobiler's luck this season. Highs upper 30s central, lower 40s south. Rain chance 80%.

Sunday: Cloudy, breezy and colder yet with scattered light snow showers or flurries, mixing with light rain or drizzle at times during the day. Highs lower 30s central, mid- 30s south. Chance of precip 40%.

Next Week:
Monday: Cloudy and breezy with light snow. Highs 25-30. Chance of snow 40%.
Tuesday: Partly sunny, highs 27-32.
Wednesday: Cloudy and breezy with light snow or flurries. Highs 29-34. Chance of snow 25%.

Today in Las Vegas, Nevada: Sunshine, highs lower 60s today and 60-65 this weekend.

Today in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina: Partly cloudy, highs mid- 50s. A chance of showers on Sunday.

Today in League City and Pearland, Texas: Mostly cloudy and breezy with a chance of thunderstorms tonight and tomorrow, highs upper 60s today and mid- 70s by Sunday.

Today in Evansville, Indiana: Partly sunny and warmer, highs mid- 50s. Showers and thunderstorms tomorrow.
