Good Thursday bloggers! Thank you for stopping by the Weather Watch 12 blog. As I have mentioned in my previous 2 blogs I love talking about the weather so this will be a daily weather blog. Some days the weather will be exciting, and others will be quiet. No matter what the weather is like, we will have lots to discuss whether it is the current weather, or farther down the road, or even in other parts of the country. If you love weather or just want a great read each day please bookmark this blog and share it with your friends, office workers, or family. You can also leave comments in the blog and interact with the weather team. We will do our very best to respond to each of you in a timely manner!
Let’s start by discussing the arctic air that poured into the region last night and continues today. With a fresh snow pack in many locations and clear skies, temperatures took a nose-dive last night. Here are just a handful of the morning lows across the region.
- Milwaukee Mitchell +1
- Racine +1
- Fond du Lac +1
- West Bend -1
- Madison -3
The +1 degree morning low in Milwaukee was the coldest reading since last January 25…almost a year ago! The arctic air will continue from today into tonight. Some high temperatures for today may remain in the single digits! With that said it won’t take much for the low to drop to near zero or below again tonight.
Below are forecast temperatures from the NAM, one of our computer models. This first shade of purple shows lows close to 0 near the lake front, and below zero inland.
Some temperature moderation is likely this weekend with highs back into the 20s. There is a slight chance of light snow, but we will discuss that possibility later in the blog and also on WISN 12 News!
Thanks for stopping by and remember we will do our very best to keep the blog updated each day!
