Good Monday morning!
These weather synopsis boxes have been rather large lately, but thanks to a calmer weather pattern, I'm going to make this one shorter today. In-between high pressure to our west and low pressure to our east, we'll have a little northwesterly wind but besides a few isolated snow showers or flurries later today and tonight, you can expect a seasonable day outside. We're emerging from the coldest days of the year average-wise so high temperatures are soon going to be on their way up, and while there is really no direct correlation between the two, we may see high temperatures in the lower 30s later this week!
Today’s Forecast Grade: B-
Today: Sunshine this morning with clouds moving in later today. Scattered light snow showers or flurries developing late, but I'm only expecting a dusting at most. High of 18. Chance of measurable snow this evening 25%.

Appleton: Highs 20-22. Chance of precip 30%.
Madison: Highs 18-19. Chance of precip 30%.
Waukesha: Highs 20-21. Chance of precip 20%.
Tonight: Scattered light snow showers or flurries in the evening, then just mostly cloudy overnight. Lows near 5 above zero.
Tomorrow: Partly sunny, maybe some flurries again late, highs near 20.
