Today's Storm Team 4cast

 

An area of low pressure is making for a wet Friday evening with rain likely as a southerly wind continues to bring up moisture.  Temperatures will hover in the low 40s overnight so the precipitation will stay as rain tonight and into Saturday morning, bringing an additional half inch or more to southeastern Wisconsin.

As a cold front slides across the state the wind will shift directions to the northwest by late Saturday morning, pulling colder air in from Canada.  If temperatures drop fast enough the rain will transition to sleet and snow and there is the potential to some slushy accumulation, though most spots will not see much more than a half an inch of sloppy, melting snow if we get cold enough.  The sure thing for everyone will be intense winds from the NNW at 15-25mph, gusting to 35mph or higher at times, making it feel cold on top of the already falling temps.

Sunday will dry out with mostly to partly sunny skies but it will be cold and breezy with wind chills in the teens and low 20s.

Monday will be the warmest day on the 7 Day Forecast with a high climbing almost to 50 degrees on a breezy southwest wind but it will be mostly sunny at least. With a shift in the wind the air cools back into the low 40s with a few more clouds for Tuesday and opens Canada's freezer door, allowing temps to drop even more for the rest of the week. Thanksgiving looks mostly sunny with highs in the mid-30s but lows dip into the 20s for Black Friday shoppers.
