MILWAUKEE- Tuesday was the coldest day of the week in southeast Wisconsin, with temperatures reaching a high of 41 at Mitchell International Airport, according to Storm Team 4Caster John Malan.

That follows early Tuesday morning's freezing temperature in the western counties of southeast Wisconsin and several other parts of the state. 

Tuesday evening's temperatures and windchills dropped into the low 30s throughout most of southeast Wisconsin.  The overnight temperatures are expected to be cold again: 32 degrees in Milwaukee, 34 in Racine, 30 in Waukesha and Burlington and 28 in Beaver Dam and Whitewater.
