MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WTAQ) - Youngsters in Milwaukee and Racine will be among those returning to school Friday for the first time since Tuesday.
Classes in a number of southern Wisconsin districts were canceled the past two days due to the massive blizzard that dumped up to 24 inches of snow in Racine.
School resumed Thursday in Madison, where just over a foot of snow fell.
Milwaukee’s Mitchell International Airport had a near-normal schedule of flights yesterday. Also in Milwaukee, the city towed about 300 cars and gave out 1,800 tickets for parking violations during the city’s snow emergency. Milwaukee’s parking restrictions continue until noon Friday.
Meanwhile, it’s a lot warmer Friday morning than it was the past couple days. Temperatures were generally in the teens at 5 a.m. – and a few places with clear skies had readings in the single digits.
The National Weather Service says some smaller upper-level disturbances will move through during the weekend, resulting in light snow on and off. Freezing drizzle is possible in the northern half of the state Friday, as highs warm up to the 20’s and 30’s.
That’s about normal for this time of year, and forecasters say it will stay that way until next week – when we go back in the deep freeze again.
