Discussion:
The mild weather we experienced today throughout most of Wisconsin will not linger for long, as much cooler and unsettled conditions will be with us the rest of the week and into the next.  A low pressure system tracking into the central Great Lakes tonight and Wednesday will bring showers to most of the state with a chance of T-storms over the southern two thirds.  North to northeast winds will bring chilly air to the northwest and northern parts of the state tonight and Wednesday allowing for some freezing rain and sleet to also occur in those areas.  A cold front will slide through the rest of the state Wednesday.  A breezy and chilly day is expected Thursday with some lingering light rain and drizzle.  A frost or freeze could occur northwest and possibly northern areas Wednesday night, with a frost or freeze likely elsewhere Thursday night and Friday night.  The next system will bring more chilly rain (and possibly snow to the northwest and north) Saturday night into Monday. Temperature readings at vine level could reach at or below freezing Saturday night and Sunday night during the precipitation at least through the northwestern and northern parts of the state.
Forecast:     **The  forecast low temperature is for vine level**
