Storm Team 4's full forecast

Light snow left over from last night’s storm system hangs around today as it heads toward Lake Erie. This low pressure system is acting like a spring storm as there is no cold, arctic air behind the storm. There will be plenty of wind and clouds along with the light snow today in the Milwaukee area, and then quiet weather settles back in through Sunday.

Dating back to last year’s winter season, four of the past five have all been above normal for temperatures. Two of those seasons set record warmest seasonal temperatures for Milwaukee, spring and summer of 2012. The spring season was well above normal, while the summer season jumped to the top by a few tenths of a degree.

The only cooler than normal season was autumn of 2012 and it was only slightly below.
You have to go back to the spring season of 2011 to find another cooler than normal season for average temperatures.
