2/23 2:45pm - We get a bit of a break in the action through this afternoon with some light on and off rain showers alongside some patchy fog, but round two arrives tonight as the core of low pressure pushes northeast through WI. Temperatures look to stay warm enough in the mid to upper 30s to keep this as all rain in SE WI to start before a cold front moves through overnight into tomorrow morning. This means Sunday morning will see a transition back to snow, but the heaviest accumulations stay in western WI, with a dusting to an inch looking more likely for SE WI. Behind the cold front, very strong gusts arrive and push the 30-50mph range as colder air enters the region, pulling temperatures back into single digits into Monday. This system departs and then leaves us with more light snow chances through Monday, as well as much of Tuesday and into Wednesday. No lifting in this pattern until we get to March!
