Freezing rain, roller-coaster temperatures


It's not until Wednesday night or even Thursday morning when the temperature at cloud level gets below freezing where it changes to light snow or flurries with little to no accumulation.

Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says that a Weather Alert is in place for icy weather early Wednesday.

On Monday, the National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory that will be in effect from 6 p.m. Tuesday to 6 a.m. Wednesday. Freezing rain is likely in all areas, with the heaviest possible along and south of I-96.

Seasonal temperatures and a chance of flurries are in the Friday and weekend forecast. Temperatures will fall back below normal with daytime highs near -11°C. Some sleet and snow may mix in as well, especially north of Milwaukee. Wind: E/NE 5-10. Low: 20. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become hard to navigate due to accumulating snow.
