***Watch WISN 12 News for the latest weather information!***
Thank you for stopping by the Weather Watch 12 blog! Over the last week we received hundreds of Packers related pictures on the U-Local section of WISN.com I thought that one was too cute not to share in the blog.
This picture was taken in Burlington of Haley(dog) and a little Packer fan(not sure his name). Awesome pic!
With many people focused on football over the weekend, you may have missed the updated February forecast. You can check it out right after this entry.
Now onto the frigid temps that arrive this week! Likely the coldest stretch of weather this winter season will hit this week. Multiple mornings below zero are expected and daytime highs in spots will be stuck in the single digits above zero.
Below is a broad look at the cold air as it settles into the region by mid-week. The purple and red colors represent 850mb(about 1500 meters above the ground) temperatures of -15 to -25C. The map below is from the 18Z GFS computer model and is valid at Noon Wednesday.
The cold temperatures will result in 2-3 mornings with below zero readings even here in Milwaukee. The forecast temperatures map below is from the GFS. This map is valid for 6am Wednesday and shows temperatures of -5 to -10 degrees over much of southern Wisconsin. Readings closer to Lake Michigan will be about -3 to -5.
The really cold weather should last through Thursday before temperatures moderate. Looking ahead to next weekend, readings could be around or above 32 degrees! Keep in mind by next weekend the average high will be 32 for Milwaukee.
Have a great day!
