We'll almost see a repeat forecast in southeastern Wisconsin on this Sunday with mostly sunny skies, light winds and high temperatures that are nearly ten degrees below normal.  With the sunshine however, it will still feel nice and enjoy it while it lasts because there is yet another snow system on the way.

Cloud cover increases tonight but lows will still be chilly for March.  The clouds continue to thicken on Monday as our next weather-maker approaches.  This will bring a chance for snow back into the forecast on Monday night and last throughout the day on Tuesday so another longer duration of snow is expected.  While many things can still change, as the computer models are having a tough time with the storm track of this system, right now it looks like the heaviest period of snow will be on Tuesday morning.  At this point, the highest totals in the southwest as some locations may pick up 6"+ of snow.  Milwaukee and Waukesha look to pick up 3-6" if this storm system stays on the same path, points to the north and east will see lighter amounts.

Skies calm down on Wednesday as temperatures start to trend upward with 40s expected by Friday.  There is a slight chance of a rain/snow mix Friday night and into Saturday.
