A winter storm passed to the south of Wisconsin today, but the weather here was dreary nonetheless. Easterly winds brought moisture from Lake Michigan westward, causing the light freezing drizzle and spotty flurries which affected eastern, northeastern, and parts of central Wisconsin. This activity gradually diminished as the afternoon progressed. Highs were seasonally mild again, ranging through the 20s, with some low 30s reported in the southern part of the area.

A slight chance of spotty light freezing drizzle and flurries could occur for a while this evening, otherwise cloud cover will linger most of the night.

Dry and mild weather will continue through Tuesday. There will be a slight chance of flurries or a few snow showers across the far-northern part of the state late Monday as a cold front approaches but stalls over southern Lake Superior.

The cold front will be pushed southward through the state Tuesday, with a much cooler trend to follow, with cold weather looking likely next weekend.

Lake-effect snow showers will be possible Wednesday across the far-north. There will be a chance of snow showers or flurries Thursday as a wave of low pressure passes through. A winter storm may develop later next week, but current indications are the system will mainly stay to the south of our area, but still bring plenty of wind and the chance of flurries to north-central Wisconsin.

Have a good night and a splendid Sunday! Meteorologist Mike Breunling 3:30 p.m. January 12, 2019
