Quiet Cold New Year
The year is coming to an end. New Year's Eve festivities will be underway tonight, and a viewer mentioned that it always seems like we have crazy weather on this holiday. While tonight will be quiet, weather wise, it will be quite chilly. Click on the thumbnail of this story. I'm pointing out that temps will be dropping back to the teens overnight with a chilly west wind, leading to "feels-like" temperatures near zero! Not the best news for party goers, but at least travel on the roads should be good decent.
Here's a look at the extremes for New Year's Day in Milwaukee:
|Record High:||56° 1897|
|Record Low:||-11° 1969|
In more recent history, a look back at NYE and NYD over the last five years in Milwaukee:

Bundle up tonight, have fun and stay safe! Cheers to a great 2016!
