MILWAUKEE - Behind a rather benign disturbance which passed to our north comes a return to more sunshine with some huge ups and downs on the thermometers. 

We'll be significantly colder today, well below the seasonal average of 29 degrees, jump back in a big way to near 40 degrees for Friday and Saturday on very windy southwest breezes, before an Arctic blast slams in to southeast Wisconsin for the beginning of next week.

That's when high temperatures will stay stuck in the teens!

Not much in the way of significant precipitation targets our area, though there could be a bit of a mix or some light snow on Saturday.
