MILWAUKEE - A winter storm watch has been issued for Milwaukee, Waukesha, Jefferson, Kenosha, Ozaukee, Racine, Sheboygan, Walworth and Washington Counties from 12:00 p.m. Tuesday until 6:00 a.m. Wednesday.

Our respite from winter weather will be brief. 

After yesterday's bright blue skies, look for more of filtered sunshine in advance of the next storm system which will approach from the southwest. 

Today will feature seasonal readings reaching the mid 30s.

Tonight, the clouds will rapidly increase, as will the winds.

Snow will develop by the afternoon on Tuesday with several inches of accumulation possible by the evening commute. 

The snow will continue into Tuesday night and Wednesday as the low pressure system pull away to our Northeast. 

When all is said and done, some locations could be digging out of 7 inches of snow with isolated higher amounts.
