Rumble It seems like we are having all the seasons of the year in one week. Monday, we had a taste of Summer with highs in the upper 60s and lower 70s. Yesterday it felt more like an early spring or late fall day. On Wednesday it felt more like Winter. Tonight, the snow returns to Northeast Wisconsin. A band of moderate to heavy snow will set up over the area overnight. Winds will be picking up out of the northeast around 15 to 25 mph with gusts near 45 mph. By Daybreak, snowfall totals should be around 3 to 6 inches area wide with locally heavier amounts. With strong & gusty NE winds the snow will be blowing & drifting. Temperatures will begin to climb above freezing changing any lingering snow over to a wintry mix by the afternoon. Some additional snow will fall however in the Northwoods where 6 to 10 inch totals will accumulate. Temperatures rise into the mid/upper 30s Thursday evening with strong winds out of the northeast at 25 to 30 mph with gusts up to 50 mph. Showers and thunderstorms will develop in the afternoon. Locally heavy is possible & that could produce some flooding. The storm system begins to break down Friday with a few light rain/snow showers on and off through the day. Temperatures rise into the upper 30s to lower 40s. Saturday will be mostly cloudy with temperatures in the lower 40s with a stray shot of rain showers, especially in the Northwoods. There is the potential for another winter storm on Sunday. Stay tuned......
