Skies will be mostly cloudy overnight and it will remain breezy with areas of fog and light rain; some light snow may mix with the rain, mainly north of Madison. Temperatures will hold nearly steady in the 30s.

As the first part of a complex storm system moves through Wisconsin on Tuesday, skies will be mostly cloudy and mild with areas of fog, drizzle, and light rain showers, especially during the morning. High temperatures will reach the lower to middle 40s. As the storm moves slowly to the east on Tuesday night, winds will shift to the north and it will turn colder. Areas of fog are still possible, but drizzle will change to flurries as temperatures fall to the lower 30s by Wednesday morning.

Another area of low pressure will move north from the Gulf Coast to Michigan on Wednesday, merging with the storm moving eastward out of Wisconsin. Christmas Eve day will be cloudy, breezy, and a little colder with snow showers, possibly mixed with rain. High temperatures on Christmas Eve should reach the middle to upper 30s in the morning, before holding steady or falling in the afternoon. As temperatures drop to below freezing, there may still be the possibility for some minor snowfall accumulations. On Christmas Eve night, snow showers will be ending and skies will turn partly cloudy overnight; low temperatures will fall into the lower 20s. Christmas Day should be partly sunny and pleasant with high temperatures reaching the upper 30s.

Skies will become increasingly cloudy and Friday, and it will be breezy. There is a chance for rain or snow showers by late Friday afternoon as another low pressure system moves through Wisconsin. High temperatures will reach the upper 30s. It will turn colder Friday night as rain and snow showers change to flurries before ending.

The weather for the weekend will be quiet with partly sunny skies each day. Saturday will be breezy and colder with high temperatures in the lower 20s. Sunday will be seasonably cold with high temperatures in the upper 20s.
