MILWAUKEE - Yet another disturbance comes at us from the northwest today, but this one promises to pack a slightly stronger punch.

Look for more clouds and temperatures a couple degrees higher than yesterday in the mid 30s.

This is a rather tricky forecast as we remain on the border for a transition of precipitation which will develop through the mid morning increasing by the afternoon.

It should begin as snow and stay that way well to the north around Fond du Lac and Sheboygan Counties.

Temperatures should support a mix of rain and snow across the central sections of the area, along the I-94 corridor, with rain farther to the south.

Colder readings sweeping in through the evening will lead to a widespread transition to snow which should continue during the first part of the night.

A couple inches or so of snow may accumulate North with much less farther to the south.

Some lingering clouds may produce patchy flurries on Saturday with more sun for Sunday.

The cold air returns for the weekend, again, too!
