Today’s Thought: Poor Bryce had to stay home from daycare yesterday with a lot of chest congestion leading to a bad cough and some wheezing. The people at daycare said that croup is going around there, so they thought Bryce might be coming down with it, but Bryce hasn't had a fever yet so for now it sounds like it's just a chest cold.

Important Weather Statement: (Source: National Weather Service)
Southeastern Wisconsin:
Snow Advisory in effect from 6 PM this evening to 6 am CST Thursday...
... First accumulating snow expected across southern Wisconsin...

... Snow Advisory now in effect from 6 PM this evening to 6 am CST
Thursday...

The Snow Advisory is now in effect from 6 PM this evening to 6 am
CST Thursday.

A mix of rain and snow will develop this afternoon turning to all
snow this evening. Two to three inches of snow is expected.

This is the first appreciable snow accumulation for southern
Wisconsin and it comes during the busiest travel season around
the Thanksgiving Holiday. Accumulating snow is also expected to
the south in Illinois. Those planning travel are urged to keep up
with the forecast.

A Snow Advisory means that periods of snow will cause travel
difficulties. Be prepared for snow covered roads and limited
visibilities... and use caution while driving.


Wisconsin Forecast:
Now: At 7am with clouds and a solid band of rain showers in north-central Illinois, temps are in the low to mid- 30s.

Synopsis: Moisture behind a cold front stretching across central Illinois and southern Michigan could make travel a little difficult across southern Wisconsin tonight. As the area of low pressure associated with this front strengthens and starts to move to the northeast, colder temperatures and scattered rain showers will develop this afternoon, changing to snow tonight with 2-3" possible in south-central and southeastern Wisconsin. And since we're heading down there tomorrow, we'll be able to have a White Thanksgiving.
