Strong cold front to bring brief drop in temps and a batch of snow showers on Friday

All is quiet and mild today across southeast Wisconsin with temps sitting in the 50s area-wide as of the noon hour. 

After a mild afternoon, temps fall back into the low to mid 30s tonight under a mainly clear sky. Warmest temps on Friday will be during the morning as a strong cold front passes through around 11am-1pm, dropping temps below freezing and into the 20s in the afternoon.

Blustery NE winds behind the cold front will help trigger a batch of snow showers Friday afternoon. Snow may briefly fall at a moderate rate and reduce visibility. In addition to lower visibility, we'll be watching closely for a flash freeze and icy conditions on the roads as these snow showers race through.

We aren't expecting much in the way of snow, but it may be just enough to make roads slick Friday afternoon.

Temps remain on the chilly side Saturday with most spots near or a couple degrees above freezing, but this cooldown will be very short lived as 50s and even 60s return for the start of next week.
