Very Windy Night
The forecast for Milwaukee, Waukesha and SE Wisconsin is for a lot of wind tonight and tomorrow with scattered showers and lows in the 40s tonight. The cold front passed through Milwaukee this afternoon with downpours, lots of lightning and scattered reports of pea size hail. The rain the rest of the evening will be scattered and lighter than in the afternoon. The main issue this evening and tonight is the wind out of the NW at 25-35 mph and gusts around 50 mph. A High Wind Warning starts at 7pm until 7am Friday for all of SE Wisconsin.
Friday will start out with a few clouds and isolated light rain before becoming mostly sunny with highs only in the 50s. The wind will slowly diminish throughout the day as high pressure moves closer, but gusts will still be near 35 mph most of the day. The wind decreases to 10-15 mph for Friday evening in time for high school football, but temperatures will be dropping into 40s.
Saturday morning will be cold with a low of 40 in Milwaukee and mid 30s from Waukesha and west with patchy inland frost possible. The sun will be out on Saturday with a light NE wind and highs in the 50s.
Sunday will be sunny with a light SW wind warming Milwaukee into the lower 60s.
Next week looks beautiful with sunshine and highs near 70…all week. We deserve it after this past week.
