What a difference a day makes! Yesterday we saw clouds, sun and breezy winds. Today has already seen warmer temperatures in the 30s, along with cloudy skies, freezing rain, sleet, snow and rain all reported across Western Wisconsin.
We will finally see a typical March day as highs climb to 36. The cloudy skies will remain, but most of the wintry precipitation will come to an end early this afternoon. Since we did see some wintry weather this morning, a few roadways may still be slick at times. It may still be a good idea to allow a few extra minutes for the evening commute or travel later this evening.
Big improvements ahead for the weekend as sunshine returns. It will be a little cooler Saturday with highs staying in the upper 20s, but thanks to abundant sunshine, we should continue to see the gradual melting. Temperatures near 40 and sunshine Sunday will kick up melting another notch and allow for some awesome weather to get outside and enjoy or at least get the car washed!
Monday looks like it will be the warmest day of the week, and the only one in the 40s for most of the area. It will be dry as well, so another opportunity to get a taste of spring. Enjoy it while you can because the next system looks to impact us Monday night into Tuesday. Right now it looks like we will see a mix of rain and snow, with the worst of the storm still staying south of us. This could change, of course, but as of now it looks like the impacts will be minimal. No matter the storm track, expect below average temperatures by the middle of next week.
Have a wonderful weekend! Get outside and enjoy the sunshine!!!
