Light snow, sleet, rain mix possible with a brief warm up Saturday

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00
High temperatures for Saturday November 9th.

It was another frigid start to Friday with temperatures hitting the single digits and a few areas getting below 0 across Wisconsin. As the arctic high pressure system progresses across the state, southerly winds will bring warmer temperatures and cloud cover through the afternoon.

A clipper low will develop and fall out of the far northern Rockies Friday. It will sweep along the international border through the weekend and a complimentary warm front will lead to temperatures near 40 Saturday afternoon.

Surface features that are driving our weekend weather.

It will again be breezy with winds out of the south until the associated cold front drops into the states Saturday night. Wind chills will be in the low 30’s.

Ahead of that front we’ll see a small band of rain, sleet, and snow mix that will lead to minor accumulations by Sunday morning. Depending on where temperatures sit when the band comes through the valley will determine which types of wintry precipitation you’ll see.

If it stays snow, no more than a half an inch will be possible. But, more likely than not we’ll see that isolated wintry mix. No major travel issues are expdcted but a few icy spots could develop after temps fall below freezing again.

The deep cold returns Monday morning as that aforementioned cold front pushes more arctic air into the region. We’re still eyeing potential record cold highs and record cold lows.

Lastly, the final topic for Winter Weather Awareness Week talks about snow removal and safety concerns whilst shoveling. You can read Chief Meteorologist Matt Schaefer’s report on this by clicking here.
