Yesterday’s rain and rain/snow mix is making for slick roads with patches of ice this morning as temperatures will be in the 20s. So, any lingering snow or moisture still on the ground will freeze for several locations, creating black ice.

Bridges and overpasses will freeze first. Be careful on the roads on Thursday morning.

We’re expecting sunshine and highs in the 40s by Thursday afternoon.

High pressure will remain in the forecast through the weekend with warming temperatures.  Highs in the 40s today will move into the 60s by the weekend.

The next chance of rain comes with the next front on Monday.

Stay with your WIS First Alert Weather Team for more updates.
